Learning Units

Ancient Artifact Activities is organized into thematic units. Each unit features a set of objects from the Carlos Museum and is accompanied by a lesson overview, objectives, relevant themes to explore with your class, some basic historical context, discussion questions to guide your lesson and a downloadable worksheet, and step by step instructions for the creative activity associated with the unit. You will also find a set of Hebrew vocabulary words and relevant Biblical, Talmudic, and liturgical texts linked to each unit page. There is no particular order in which the units are intended to be presented– all of the materials are easily adaptable. Find out more about how to teach with images here.
