Teaching History and Science Using What? Incorporating Artifacts into Your Lessons

In this workshop, participants explore techniques that develop students’ academic oral language skills through science and history topics. By integrating language and content, teachers create relevant lessons and enhance student motivation. These collaborative discussion tools also help students apply academic vocabulary and information from texts in engaging ways.

Bring the world into your classroom! Join Bill, Mark and Andrea in this lively session where they’ll explore how to use actual artifacts to teach science and history. The artifacts may be represented in the textbook and digital program you are using or you may have an artifact at home from your travels. Material culture adds a dimension to learning that cannot be replaced by the written word. Let us demonstrate how to teach a lesson with artifacts from afar or from your own community — or your own home.
