Interesting Hands-on History Projects for Teens

History is one of those school subjects where there doesn’t seem to be a lot of middle ground for people. They either love it or hate it. Luckily, as homeschoolers, we have the opportunity to make history actually be one of our children’s favorite subjects.

Want to know the secret?

Very few middle school kids want to sit down and only read about history from a dry textbook. They want to get their hands dirty, build stuff, and really get a sense of what it was like to live during the time periods they’re studying. Don't make history boring - use hands-on projects and activities to make history fun. A week of fun and interactive ideas for middle school history.

Make it interactive. That’s it.

Very few middle school kids want to sit down and only read about history from a dry textbook. They want to get their hands dirty, build stuff, and really get a sense of what it was like to live during the time periods they’re studying. Think about it. Don’t you think students would love to recreate a Roman feast, get suited up for a medieval battle, or play a game that colonial kids played?

That’s why, for the next week, we’re going to help you make history interesting by sharing a variety of hands-on projects that are teen approved, for five different time periods, that you can easily add to your lesson plans.

Over the five days, we’ll head back to:

We hope you’ll follow along so you can see just how fun history can be!

I love homeschooling! Learning is a way of life for our family. Most days you will find us exploring our Central Florida community, having fun while learning. I am constantly looking for new and interactive ways to engage my older children.
