Summer History Review with Storyboard That

 
Is your budding genius a little fuzzy on some historic details?  If you ask them about a particular time in history is there answer something like:
Oh yeah, that’s about some dude that did something
Besides reading and math summertime is also a time to freshen up on some all-important history tidbits.  Let the kiddos know that for all intents and purposes history is really just a narrative, a great story of who done it and why.  When you get home from work they can tell you what they re-membered with Storyboard That!
Note: With Storyboard That you can create two storyboards per week for free, or upgrade any time for more advanced features.

 

Happy Learning!!
