Context content and disciplines

Context, Content, and Disciplines

How does the story of the origin of elements fit into each curriculum?

National & state curriculum requirements

Personal interests and experiences

Balancing discipline-oriented and multi-disciplinary approaches

Questions lead across or are independent of disciplinary boundaries

Work with teachers from other domains: art, literature, history, drama
