#Histedchat, hands-on activities in the history classroom (05/12/12)

I moderated tonight’s chat on “Hands-on activities in the history classroom”. Two questions to guide discussion:

  1. What are your favourite hands on activities for the history classroom?
  2. What realia / materials / movies / tools work best in your history classroom?
EdmodoΒ code q51zcw Please join.

Tweets in tonight’s #Histedchat. I’ll have to find a way to make the links clickable:
