Teaching history to young children is one of the most challenges content areas in education
unless you are able to make things meaningful to them. I believe this can be best achieved
when we look at the history that surrounds the area were children grew u p. I have come to
appreciate local history. Local history is everywhere. It is in the cemetaries, the subdivisions
and their street names, it is downtown in the architecture, it's in old county and city maps, it
comes form the senior citizens in the commu nity, it's in the name of a community, it's in the
churches that make up the community, it's in the stores that serve the community. We must
utilize these resources to help children feel connected to their community so they can expand
their understandings of other communities and cultures around the world.

Sincerly,
