Textbooks present a dry, dull picture of history, detailing mundane facts and dates that must be memorized. But, real history is learned when it is brought to life. Karen Nelson shares how her family brought a Greek unit study to life and gives tips for those who might not know how to make history interesting.

Parents should use textbooks as reference points to refresh their memory of historical facts. But when presenting those fact to their children, they should bring excitement to the table.

1. Set the Stage
Create a hook for your history unit study by starting with a field trip! Starting with something creative initiates both questions and interest.

2. Create a Parallel
Pull the past into the present by comparing the then and the now. How do the people compare? What about the culture?

3. Find Cause & Effect
History repeats itself. Finding out why things happened in the past can help us change the future.

Don’t just read historical information. Do it! Act it out! And watch it come alive for your students.

Facing Problems in Teaching History? Hire a Limousine

Posted by on Jul 30, 2017 in Teaching History | Comments Off on Facing Problems in Teaching History? Hire a Limousine

Teaching history to children can be difficult and as they generally do not take any interest in it. However there are some ways to make teaching enjoyable so that they can learn quickly. Children should know about the important days and political people of their country but it is noticed that many of them hate history. To make history a subject of interest to them, hire a limousine and take them out for a short excursion trip.

A limousine can accommodate from 18 to 40 persons depending on different models. You can arrange a study trip for the kids. And if you have a really small class of around 15 kids, you can go for a Lincoln Limousine. And before sitting in the limousine tell the students about presidents and the political people who have these cars now. They would absolutely admire it and then let them sit in the limo. They would all hurriedly settle inside it. Take a ride around the town, show them the important historical places and tell them their history and this time they will surely take interest in it.

You can come back to school after seeing the important places in the town, or the other option would be that you go to a museum. The kids would be delighted to sit in a luxurious car and would be excited to reach their destination. Show them the museum, different monuments, statues of the political leaders ad tell them the important things. While you are headed back to the school from the museum, just take a small quiz and you will notice that they will have remembered each and every detail. The limousine will attract the attention of the children and they would love to be taught in such a magnificent car.

It is not necessary that the school arranges a trip in a limousine for kids. You can do this on a personal level too. Ask some of the parents of your child’s classmates to pool in some money and you can arrange a small study trip on your be-half for the kids. Giving practical knowledge to the children always makes them remember the things being taught and sharpen their minds. And you will see for yourself that if your child once had a problem in history, after a ride in the limousine, he will excel in it for sure.

History is FUN!

Posted by on Jul 2, 2017 in Teaching History | 7 comments

History class is boring. At least that’s what most of us remember from our elementary and junior high school years.

So how come a 5th grader, after completing an 8 page (!) history test about Ancient Greece excitedly asks her teacher if she can read the last paragraph of her test to him?

How do you motivate students to make the learning of history so exciting that students can’t wait to come to class each day?

Watch this video to see how, in LePort’s elementary school program, we connect history to the children’s life today. What if your child could learn history, and all other school subjects, in this exciting, engaging way?
