History for Early Learners, by St Aiden’s Homeschool

Today educators are working to promote the study of history in the schools and at home. Knowledge of our history enables us to understand our nation’s traditions, its conflicts, and its central ideas and values. Knowledge of world history enables us to understand other cultures. We hope to encourage children to love history and to enjoy learning about it.

This book is a tool you can use to stimulate your children’s active involvement in the history that surrounds them every day. It includes: Basic information about history, and approaches to enjoying history with your children, aged 4-11; History activities that you and your children can do–at home, in your community, and out of town–for no or little cost; and History resources in your community and nationally.

The activities in this book can help you start doing history with your child. You will probably get more ideas of your own. In addition, you can develop some “history habits” that make history important not only during an activity but every day.

This book has a number of activities that are adaptable to various age groups, with blank templates for you to create your own lessons. When focus is on a specific event or person that can in fact result in an entire lesson plan. Teacher/Parent Notes and Internet Resources are Included for Further Reference.

    • Hi there, thank you for reading and posting a comment…

      The book was compiled using mostly Public Domain resources, which is HUGE, so I managed to cram a lot of information in there… with the possibility of branching off into so many other aspects of History… i really enjoyed researching this information 🙂

      Have a wonderful week x
