You can make learning history more fun. Try these ideas:
History bingo. Make bingo cards with important dates or events on them. When playing, call out the name of the matching person. Your child must put her marker on the appropriate box.
History memory game. Prepare three cards for each person from history: one with the person’s name; one with dates of birth/death; one listing what the person is famous for—event, invention, etc.). Mix them up. Lay them face down. Challenge your child to find the matching cards.
History plays. Help your child write a script for a play about a specific historic event. Invite friends and family members to participate.
“Living history.” With your child, prepare a meal using recipes from the period your child is studying. Wear period costumes when you serve the dinner.
