Building models, doing activity pages, making hats from a time era, and making replicas of the places we are learning about, are all fun ways we like to teach our children about different times and periods of history. After 11 years of homeschooling our 6 children, we have learned that using resources like Dover Publications offers, along with great reading books the kids retain the information so much better. Its almost like bringing history to life for the kids and at the same time making learning so much more enjoyable for kids.
I received this product for review purposes and was compensated for this review. All opinions are my honest opinions, I was not obligated to write a positive review.
I often make up different unit studies, pull together lap book or note booking ideas, find great books to read on a topic, etc in order to teach about any time and point in history for the kids. It is a time consuming process, but you get faster with it as time goes on. On top of that once you see how much the kids enjoy learning about the topic you put together, it makes your work very worth while. Over the years of putting together these units, one great resource we have grown to love is Dover Publications. They have such a plethora of great resources for any topic imaginable, in any age group that make learning about any topic so much more enjoyable and educational. We have used their resources in our unit studies, high school units, Montessori trays, nature studies. You name it, Dover has resources that are just perfect for you!
