Teaching Science through Story
Horton, Jessica
Teaching Science, v59 n3 p38-41 Sep-Oct 2013
Children find comfort in stories. They are familiar, accessible and entertaining. By teaching science through narratives, we can provide that same comfort and access to scientific content to children of all ages. In this article, I will discuss how, through the use of narratives in science instruction, we can provide students with a deeper understanding of scientific content and history while simultaneously making the scientific figures of the past more accessible to the students of today.
