History Through Heritage classes will lead students through tracing their own family tree. They will learn about the history of the people and places they find; history in reverse, so to speak.
Students will use historical documents to find facts about their ancestors and piece together what their lives were like by examining the events of their time in the places where they lived. The course is designed to engage kids in an exciting journey of discovery and inspire them to keep digging and learning. Students will also be encouraged to connect with the elderly in community service projects to help document the lives of our older generations.
Students will learn:
Research resources and techniques
Critical thinking and logic skills
Historical facts and events in relation to their own family
How history has influenced their own lives as well as current events
