Since we struggle to get our children to do assigned school work, I hesitated to write this. But I LOVE history and always want to share fun activities for kids. My boys are a little too old for these now – one at Western Kentucky University, one in basic training in the Army, and one in high school. Even at their ages, they still love trivia games and download apps to play.
Another awesome site is monticello.org. Go to the menu drop down box and click on research and education. Click on “for educators”. There is a virtual field trip and tours that is fun. Click on “Learning at Home” for fun activities. This is a great way to learn about Thomas Jefferson!
George Washington’s Mount Vernon website has an online learning tab that is fantastic. mountvernon.org/library/digitalhistory/resources-for-online-learning. It has links such as interactive learning and media, digital primary sources, and online student learning opportunities. Even parents will enjoy the Mount Vernon Virtual Tour and Be Washington in the Classroom.
As we navigate these new uncertain times, staying mentally active is a great way to fight boredom and depression. #TEAMKENTUCKY.
