Traveling? Hit Some Historic Sites!

One of the hardest subjects for a lot of kids to get into (our seventh grader, for instance) is history. He loves hearing about history, and has a genuine interest in discovering more…but just reading from a book can be dry and boring. However, there are a lot of ways that you can include history and even get your kids to really enjoy the subject. When we travel, we try to plan ahead and find out what historic sites there are in our destination, as well as along the way. We build in a little extra time during the trip so that we can hit those stops and let the kids get their hands “dirty” in history. We’re homeschoolers; we know to incorporate a little education in everything, don’t we?
