Why Get Kids Interested In History?
"Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it," but how do we get kids interested in learning about our past.
Take them to a museum, historic site, or historical enactment events. It stimulates their imaginations. Use history books with pictures; lots and lots of pictures!
Try to relate it to them and today's world (for example, "You are free today because our ancestors fought against oppressors "
Buy them history-themed toys.
Let them play history-based games such as Risk, Axis & Allies, or Civilization.
