One thing I found particularly helpful was the teaching with objects lesson because you could use simple, everyday objects to offer a whole new perspective to your students about how they were used and what life was like. Though again, nothing beats taking the kids to the museum and letting them see actual period pieces. Not to mention talking to the actors there who play the role of various residents of the museum.
