4 History Apps to Help Parent’s Keep Up!

 
We are no longer in the days when teachers ask their students to always remember every name and date in their textbook.  If your child is lucky they have a teacher who wants them to fully understand the who, the where and the why of history.  This type of teacher will make history exciting and most of all applicable to your kiddos own lives. 
This also means that your little or big ones will come and talk to you about what they’ve learned.  When they do, if your memory is a little rusty on what happened in the past, then you can just peruse through these history apps to help refresh your memory.

 

Happy Learning!
