The Rooms offers Edu-kits to teachers at no charge. Each kit includes a variety of artifacts, learning resources, lesson plans, and activity sheets to support the Social Studies Curriculum on Newfoundland and Labrador history from the 1800s.

Reproduction artifacts and archival documents along with activities bring the various experiences of the First World War to life.
These resources were developed under the leadership and guidance of the Healing and Commemoration Advisory Committee, to help students further understand and participate in reconciliation, spread awareness and education about residential schools in the province, and to foster acknowledgement and understanding towards those who attended the schools and their families.
