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?
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!
Our friends at iHN are sharing even more 5 day studies, covering a wide variety of subjects.
