This class is exactly what the name implies: Adventures in History. We will focus on approximately 6 periods of history, starting with a strong historical fiction book. We learn about the time period, the major players, how the people lived, what they believed, and how it compares to our current time. We do various craft projects throughout each unit to bring the time period to life. I also bring in guest speakers when available. Units in the past have covered Ancient China, WWII, Age of Exploration, Renaissance, Medieval Age, Ancient Japan, WWI, History of Australia, and various biographies. This is an active class, with lots of participation and movement. My biggest goal is to teach students to love history. NOTE: Each year we cover different books and time periods than in prior years, so repeating the class works well.
