Making history engaging for students is possibly one of the most difficult tasks for teachers. How do we overcome that? Two key things are critical for accomplishing this task. First, it must be relatable in someway, and secondly, it needs to offer learning opportunities for multiple learning styles. Historical Stories of Survival uses the New York Times best selling and popular I Survived book series. This instantly makes history relatable, as the main characters are school age children and families.

Historical Stories of Survival uses multisensory learning, which follows a pattern of Do It, Write It, Say It, Read It, See It. Multisensory learning is great for every kind of learner - because each learner gets to experience learning the way they are most comfortable - but they also have the opportunity to learn through other senses. Studies and research have shown that learning material through multiple senses helps children to retain information better.

The experiences practiced in multisensory learning allow each student to participate in ways that help them understand and retain best. Boys and girls learn together and help each other with projects such as creating a diorama or creating an airplane model, having discussions about the story, historical information, as well as positive character traits such as endurance, compassion, bravery and courage.

Schooling multiple ages together, in a co-op setting for example, is very manageable. And, with the continuity of the same subject matter for literature and history, as well as crafts and field trip experiences, opportunities for discussion are plentiful and help build a love of learning.

Field trips can include a local weather station tour or stargazing. This six week unit study using the I Survived The Eruption of Mount St. Helens, 1980, from the I Survived book series, is great for doing school in a large class setting, or a smaller co-op environment. . Have a class survival party at the end of the unit!
