Science on Stage Europe The European platform for science teachers


Latvian teacher workshop about “Lilu’s House”

On 23 October, the Zemgale Region Human Resource and Competences Development centre (Latvia) organized a workshop for primary science teachers. They were introduced to the teaching material “Lilu's House: Language Skills through Experiments”.

11 teachers from Jelgava schools participated in the workshop and learned how to promote the basic scientific knowledge of primary school children while simultaneously training their skills in reading, writing and speaking.

The teachers practically performed several experiments from the brochure and discover how to integrate the material into their curriculum. 

The teachers acknowledge that the experiments were a good example how to implement a cross-curricular approach.

The material has been translated into Latvian by Skaidrite Bukbarde and the preschools and primary schools in Jelgava received the published version of the book.

The material is also available online:
