Abstract

Playing with History was a learning project developed in the Lisbon City Museum. During almost ten years museum educative technicians together with History school teachers created a set of activities from board games to aid in the teaching of history. Board games as “Duodecim scripta” and “tabula” were developed as a strategies to aid in the study of the Rome Empire, while “alquerque” or “nine men morris” were used in the study of Medieval society. In this paper we want to present this project, explaining pedagogical results and show some learning strategies developed to reach the educational goals of official Portuguese education programs.
