Not all students learn the same way. We utilize many methods in our teaching process:
Visual  - Various artefacts and props are displayed. Lighting is also used
Auditory  - Presenters speak about curriculum based facts. Background music is played
Kinesthetic  - Students get to touch and/or try on the artefacts at the end of the presentation
Skits/Role Playing  - Students act out historical skits wearing costumes
