1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Match boxes (Materials and Activities for Teachers and Children) were developed by the Children's Museum in Boston. They are presently distributed by the American Science and Engineering Company. The match box concept consists of a collection of multi-media activities packaged in kit form to be used by elementary school teachers and children. The focus is on non-verbal learning and the acquisition of skills that are not unique to any one subject matter area, with emphasis on direct experiences and authentic materials. This report describes the match boxes and tells about the origins of the project. It gives the specifics of management and organization of the product development phase. A summative evaluation of the project is followed by reports of diffusion and adoption activities. A list of the critical decisions made in the course of the project serves as a summary.
