great collection and great teaching.i wish i had a teacher like you (when i was in school) the roman coins were real??
My overall goal is to get them to retain what information I'm teaching them. If they can leave my class and remember at the end of the school year or even years later: "Oh! I remember when we Mr. T brought in Roman coins and WW2 helmets and talked to us about them!" I think I've succeeded to some extent.
Yes! The Roman coins are real! While there are certainly very rare and very expensive Roman coins, there are literally millions and millions of common coins out there that can be obtained for very cheap! A few gentlemen were kind enough to donate to me a lot of about 200 dirty roman coins. I had my students clean off the surface dirt to expose the details hidden beneath.
A nice, original Luftwaffe lid ! Original helmet strings can be found, which should
not cost you all that much - maybe $10 or $12.
There is nothing like 'hands-on' lessons. These kids will not only remember
the cool items they got to handle, but will also remember
the great teacher they had............!
wow.great coins.When i was a child i wanted to be an archaeologist.I love history.
