I began class by asking each student what they like to study the most and then explained that when you study history, you study about everything. I could see little light bulbs of understanding turning on in their minds as we talked. We also did a Venn Diagram of life then and life now to show that people now are similar to people then, yet some of our resources make our lives seem different.
I will come back later and share some of my ideas on helping kids love history later. Now it is your opportunity to share with us. What creative learning have you had this week?
