The OISE Library K-12 Manipulatives Database organizes items into collections based on the Ontario Ministry of Education's documents. Collections are organizaed into subject areas (e.g. Arts, Mathematics, Science & Technology) and strands (e.g. Arts: Music, Arts: Drama).

A manipulative is a tangible object such as a cube, prism, or solar system model that students can manipulate to acquire a deeper understanding of a concept. Other examples include puppets, games, and kits.

OISE Library's Curriculum Resources Collection contains over 600 manipulatives to support K-12 teaching and learning in all subject areas.
