Language is key to knowledge and social participation. Especially inquiry-based learning of STEM topics offers outstanding opportunities to challenge students to communicate.
The new teaching brochure ‘Lilu’s House – Language Skills through Experiments’ by Science on Stage Deutschland e.V. shows how science experiments help to promote language skills in primary school. An international team of ten primary school teachers developed specific ideas and practical advice for hands-on experiments about the topic ‘home’ that consider mixed-ability classes in learning and skills with diverse difficulty levels of texts and tasks.
We hereby cordially invite you to the presentation of the publication on 21 September 2018 at 13:00 at the Representation of the State of Hessen to the European Union, Rue Montoyer 21, 1000 Brussels.
After the presentation you will also have the opportunity to test the experiments of the brochure in a workshop (15:15-17:00) and to discover 'inexplicable' observations in bathroom, kitchen and living room with children’s eyes – from the condensation of a mirror when you take a shower up to the function of fermenting yeast when baking bread. Our workshop team will introduce you to easy hands-on experiments that show you how to examine the everyday phenomena with your students in a fun way while simultaneously training their language skills.
We are looking forward to your registration via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by 16 September 2018.
