How do I get my child interested in history?

Audio Recordings

My son loves to make tape recordings. I use this fascination to educational advantage by having him create taped "interviews" of famous scientists or historical figures.

Your child could pretend to be a field journalist covering some major event in history such as the Pompeii eruption or D-Day. How about interviewing a Pony Express rider? Or Martin Luther following his visit to the Wittenburg Door? The child could expand this technique and create whole radio dramas including historically accurate advertising.

*When homeschooling, be creative and work your child's interests into the learning process.
