The chest is a kit designed to talk about nature and introduce children and adults alike to the biotic communities of forests, bogs and coastal areas. The study aid is prepared using the examples of Riisa bog, Puhtu fresh boreo-nemoral forest and Matsalu coastal landscapes. It supports instructors and teachers as they attempt to introduce these places or biotic communities in general. Thanks to realistic sample materials, tactile picture cards and models, the study aid can target several senses. The chest of senses is suitable for people with impaired vision and hearing.
