So begins our Time Travel Field Trip to 1944. It’s unlike any history lecture, textbook or presentation you’ve ever seen. Why?
First of all, it’s incredibly engaging. History is so often taught as a fait accompli, something where the conclusion is already known, something that happened a long time ago to other people.
This is different.
- Fun to learn and easy to teach
- Accurate and detailed history, complete with primary sources
- Meets the standards you have to teach anyway…but in a way that makes students want to continue playing history at recess.
Appropriate for grades 5 and up.
Requires only one class period.
