Resources to plan history project ideas

We loved using Classical Kids Activity Guide. It has so many hands on history project ideas that are simple enough to do for young children.  There are a variety of projects in this book - spanning across a study of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome.

Timelines are a wonderful way to see all history at a glance and the timeline figures from Amy Pak help to visualize what happens at what time - the figures of history through the ages.

We have also used Veritas Press Cards to show events of history by pegging them on a string on a large empty wall in our home.

Another way we have done time-lines is just to get a roll of paper, simply add a black line with dates and then draw in characters, events as well as glue in pictures of events. It's such a great way to see history and view different characters who lived at the same time.

You will also find that some of the history project ideas on the Ancient Greece page - cover Ancient Rome as well. For example, the History Scribe - covers Greece and Rome and Robin Sampson has a study on Ancient History: Adam to Messiah - covering both of these time periods also.  See the Ancient Greece Project page for more information.
