My latest KC Parent article is out this month, called "Historical Addiction--Making History Come Alive for Kids." In it, I interview a holocaust survivor, Sonia Warshawski, about why history is so important. Some of the highlighted ideas:
-Dig into your family roots to understand your own history
-Connect with your faith and its role in history
-Pick one historical theme, and study it through games, projects, books, and movies
-Take a family field trip to a historical site or festival
-Seek out primary sources (don't forget to interview grandparents!)
You can find the full article on the KC Parent website HERE.
