Imagine your students handling ancient arrowheads, rings and coins from ancient Rome, or a selection of Medieval pottery.


A great way to get student fascinated in their studies.

Hands on HISTORY....That is what

we are all about!

 

Why use our products?

Hands on activities enrich the students learning processes.

They provide a means for moving the student beyond the standard classroom learning environment.

They allow Ancient History and Archaeology to be presented in a variety of ways.

Coupled with regular classroom exercises, they allow for various learning styles and capabilities to be stimulated and so create an atmosphere where all students can work to their maximum potential.

They provide the student with structured visual and tactile experinces by stimulating multiple senses. They provide hands on discovery and coupled with lesson exercises stimulate inquiry processing.

The idea is to stimulate the students to learn rather than forcing them to learn......

Want your test your students on say....Tutankhamun's Tomb?
send them to our student's page and have them go to the interactive link to the game of SENET where they can play the game of Senet on line against Tutankhamun himself, but they must answer a series of questions about Egypt in order to play each move. Have them write their answers and present their report in class. This could be a great in class activity as well!

How about testing their knowledge of Gladiators.........try the link to an interactive Gladiator game where they have to answer questions before they can continue!
