Historical museums are a great tool to bring curriculum to life for the young learner. A visit to a time-period specific museum will provide an in-depth understanding of lifestyle, household and industrial tools, famous people, fashion, military and other cultural topics that cannot be fully appreciated by reading a textbook.
Observe your child as his or her thinking switches from the twenty-first century into that of a different historical time period. This is an opportunity for your pupil to be immersed in history and encourage imagination. This first-hand experience will enhance comprehension, appreciation and retention of history in an unparallelled way.
