History through Stories

There are so many ways to approach history in the younger years! Here are some suggestions:

  • You could read short, individual biographies for an early introduction to history.
  • You could use picture book biographies.
  • Or use picture books to study some historical (or fun) events!
  • Or you could start with your country’s folklore.

Whatever you choose, have fun and keep the readings short!
