- I would read aloud to them about historical events and people through living books (We used Sonlight curriuclum for most of our homeschooling years.) This was our after lunch routine, Time together on the couch, letting imaginations loose as we read toghether. My older children would also read books about the same time period or historical events on their own as well.
- We would discuss what we read and learned.
- We would watch a movie about the same topic when possible.
- Sometimes I would have the older children write a paragraph or essay about it. (They branched off on their own when they reached their high school years)
- If we were taveling, we used every opportunity to talk about the historical events and visit the locations, museums, etc where the events took place so we could learn more.
This recource is a great way to add visual learning to your history! I did all the work for you.
