1. Students listen, read or watch a video on the history subject.
2. They draw a picture that best represents the subject to them.
3. Describe It! Allows the children to re-write the story in just a few sentences.
If the child is too young to write or simply tuckered out that day, moms may transcribe or they may print off a description and glue it on.
4. LINK IT! is next! The student places a picture or the name of the event in the middle circle. From there, they place pictures or notes about the event or person in the circles around the main circle. For example, Alexander the Great could be linked to Aristotle, his homeschool tutor, who may be linked to Plato and Socrates. His father, Philip of Macedonia may be in another circle and Bucephales, his horse may be connected because Philip purchased this horse for him. The city of Alexandria may be in another circle. The Light House of Alexandria connected with Amum or Africa or The Nile River.
