Using Clay as a Learning Resource for Teaching the History of Science.
De Angelis, Joseph M.
Construction of laboratory equipment from earthenware clay uses art as a way to incorporate the element of science history into an Introductory Physical Science (IPS) unit on distillation. Classroom techniques for working with clay to construct distilling apparatus are outlined. Other supplementary material from the arts, including slide presentations on original art work of past laboratories and sketches from primary sources, are also suggested. (CS)
