A WWII Christmas – Using Historical Fiction to Teach History

WWII Christmas WTGOver the next few days, Tricia Goyer, Cara Putman, and I are sharing posts on Free Homeschool Deals about teaching history to your children.

Do your kids love learning about history? Or hate it? Perhaps a slightly different approach will help. In today’s post, Through a Story Window: Using Historical Fiction to Teach History, I talk about how my daughter’s eyes were opened to the “boring” world of history through a great story. The article includes tips and a printable worksheet to use when kids read biography or historical fiction.

This would be great for both homeschoolers and for public or private school kids on Christmas break.
