Multisensory Strategies for Science Vocabulary
Husty, Sandra; Jackson, Julie
Science and Children, v46 n4 p32-35 Dec 2008
Seeing, touching, smelling, hearing, and learning! The authors observed that their English Language Learner (ELL) students achieved a deeper understanding of the properties of matter, as well as enhanced vocabulary development, when they were guided through inquiry-based, multisensory explorations that repeatedly exposed them to words and definitions in context. In this article, they describe their experiences using a multisensory approach with a group of third-grade students who are classified as ELL. (Contains 2 figures.)
