Using a lively question and answer format, the “If You Lived…” series addresses many important topics throughout history. The role of children in the historic events is emphasized so that your kids can really relate to the descriptions and feel some connection with the people of that period.
There are several titles in this series and we have enjoyed many of them. It is easy to incorporate this series into your homeschool history curriculum, for example, when we were learning about the Civil War, we read If You Lived at the Time of the Civil War.
We created a resource to go with If You Lived In Colonial Times that is currently available for FREE! My daughter loves the illustrations and descriptions of dwellings, clothing, and even about the children’s chores (I wish she loved her own chores!). Living in Colonial Times – A Notebooking Journey is currently free for a limited time!
The layout flows in a way that you can skip around in the book and stretch it out over a several history lessons. This series covers many events from American History that will help your children relate to the specific time period.
If you are looking for some fun, educational books you can use to read alongside the period of history you are studying, check these out! The target ages are 8-11, but of course, that’s flexible.
