Newell was the director of drawing education in Massachusetts public schools, where Froebel's philosophies of education became prominent at the end of the 19th century. Milton Bradley published many of the books used in drawing curriculum and used in correlation with subjects such as history, literature and geography. The projects are designed to build on the Froebelian gifts and occupations learned in kindergarten, creating tableus and dioramas using sand tables, blackboard drawings and construction paper models.
