In education, realia (pronunciation reel-ee-ah) are objects from real life used in classroom instruction by educators to improve students' understanding of other cultures and real life situations. A teacher of a foreign language often employs realia to strengthen students' associations between words for everyday objects and the objects themselves. In many cases, these objects are part of an instructional kit which includes a manual and is thus considered as being part of a documentary whole by librarians.
Realia are also used to connect learners with the key focal point of a lesson by allowing tactile and multidimensional connection between learned material and the object of the lesson. They are best utilized for simple objects lending themselves to classroom settings and ease of control with minimum risk of accident throughout the student object interaction.
This cache is so awesome I can't stand it!
I'd scream but the librarian would scowl, so I'll stay mum. If you want to scream with delight, however, I can't stop you.
My son, railroader921, created this cache and asked me to be its owner since I live close by to maintain it. This is our first combined effort. You're gonna love it!
