a declaration of fun

Prescription for teaching World History successfully to an energetic 8-year-old?

  • Use a great resource: A Child's History of the World by V.M. Hillyer
  • Draw a map of ancient lands
  • Read aloud together one chapter
  • Include a writing exercise of key words

Success = the child was engaged for the learning process and enjoying himself declared, "This is fun!"
