This fascinating book shows children what to include in a book about history. Students can create a book that may involve dates and events, or it may be a social history, such as life in a colonial city or a pioneer village. Suggestions for research include a visit to a nearby historic site, reading stories or watching television shows about children who lived during that time in history, and reading non-fiction books about the subject. Children can draw their own pictures or find images on the Internet of clothing, tools, craftspeople, furniture, homes, schools, and family and community life. Other options include writing an alphabet book on a historic community or focusing on one aspect, such as a family home or one-room school.
