The aim of the study was to construct knowledge about the prehistoric life style of Istanbul with regard to the clothing and sheltering. The research was carried out in three stages as pre-visit, visit, and post-visit to the Archeologically Museum where various educational techniques were used. 63 5(th) grade elementary school children participated in the study to test the effectiveness of the program. Statistical analysis revealed that the experimental group was more successful than the control group on conceptualizing the prehistoric life style and constructing knowledge about clothing and sheltering.
