Schools get their Hands on History

Kent Life is proud to offer Hands on History, a fun and interactive aid to learning in the classroom. Our boxes are full of genuine and replica items to touch, smell, listen to and play with, bringing to life periods in history that you can only usually read about in books.

Each box also contains teacher's resources to help you make the most of our Hands on History service. Download our Hands on History booking form.
