RE-POST: GETTING DOWN & DIRTY

Expanding on action-oriented history, it doesn’t have to be fast action. Kids love to dig, and history can be found in your own backyard or school playground. Depending on where you live, kids can unearth everything from arrowheads and dinosaur fossils to pottery shards and Roman coins. You can just supply some garden tools and […]

RE-POST: ACTION-PACKED HISTORY

HISTORIC TRADITIONS: SCHULTŰTEN

For two hundred years, children starting their first year of school in Germany have been presented with a Schültute, a paper cone filled with toys, school supplies, and treats.
