Re-post, updated for the benefit of any new to the blog I began on September 18th, 2013, the 89th birthday of my Aunt Hilda, who sadly passed away on March 7th, 2019 at the age of 95. She was the last of our maternal older generation, which means my brother, cousins, and myself have inherited that position on that side of the family. Even though I, for one, don’t feel quite that old. But like her sister (my mother) she was always ready to talk about WW II and other historic times she lived through. So, those who still have access to members of their older generations, remember what a great history source they are!


HISTORY DEBATE TOPIC: People and/or events older kids and teens might like to debate.

HISTORY IN THE MAKING: Current news stories or happenings that are likely to become of interest to historians of the future, and kids can be encouraged to speculate about.

HISTORY LURE: Suggestions for sparking an interest in history through something else kids are interested in.

HISTORY MYSTERY: Pieces of history that people still don’t know the answer to, such as what happened to the little princes in the Tower, or the identity of Jack the Ripper.

HISTORY SHARE: A site with information I find interesting and want to share with parents/teachers who might want to explore it with kids they think will find it interesting..

HISTORY TIDBIT: A short piece of information regarding some aspect of history that might encourage youngsters to find out more.

HISTORIC BAD IDEA: People don’t always go down in history because they did something clever or right, and kids often find historic failures and mistakes more entertaining than successful ventures.

HISTORIC DISCOVERY: Interesting historic ‘finds’.

HISTORIC CONTROVERSY / HISTORY DEBATE TOPIC: People and/or events older kids and teens might like to debate.

HISTORIC KIDS: Kids can sometimes relate to history better if it involves people their own age.

HISTORIC OCCUPATIONS: The kind of jobs people used to have, some of which are still going today.

HISTORIC SCHOOLS / EDUCATION: Education of the young through the ages.

HISTORIC THEME: Ways parents/teachers can incorporate history into modern life, such as specific-era themed birthday parties, or the history behind popular culture, or the names of months / days of the week.

HISTORIC WHO AM I?: Child or Teen related photo with one or two hints that challenges kids to figure out who that kid/teen grew up to be. Similar to Trivia Trail.

HISTORIC WORTH-A-VISIT: Places of historic interest people can take kids to if they happen to be in the area.

MAKING A GAME OF HISTORY: History-based games and activities.

TRIVIA TRAIL: A history-based question parents/teachers can challenge kids to find the answer to. With perhaps some kind of reward going to the first to find the answer, or answer with additional info.


HOLIDAY / SEASONAL POSTS: Acknowledgement of well-known celebrations and events and/or information pertaining to same.

HISTORICAL MOVIE IDEAS: History-Based TV & Movie Recommendations suitable for kids and teens.

DON’T FORGET THE ‘STORY’: Book recommendations for various age groups (including adult). The word ‘history’ contains the word ‘story’, and historical fiction is a great way to foster a love of history itself.

BOOK REVIEW: Review of a book I’ve read that has historic value.

BOOK PROMOTION: Interviews with authors who write historical fiction and information about the books themselves.

BLATANT SELF-PROMOTION: From time to time, I also promote the historical middle grade fiction I write.
