Teaching with Objects

I found this short post on why teach with objects enlightening, and all the more reason to encourage folks to check out the Montana Historical Society’s Hands On History footlockers or footlockers from other museums. (Please note: It is NOT too early to reserve your footlockers for next year. Our most popular trunks go fast!)

I also know teachers who have successfully brought in their own historic objects—or had students bring something one from home. Among them is Renee Rasmussen. For details on how she conducted her family heirloom project, email mkohl@mt.gov.
