Historians Young and Old (some with rabbits)

History Just for Kids is a place to share ideas for helping children understand that history is about real people in real places and it not only happened in the past, it's also happening right now. If you have a site you love or an idea you'd like to share, let me know and I'll include it.

What? A one-hour interactive session that meets second-grade Georgia History standards in your own classroom. Students will be actively involved in comparing and contrasting their lives with the lives of Georgia kids throughout the last 250 years.

Who? The session will be led by Marcia Mayo, retired second-grade teacher and author of Secret Stories from Peachtree Creek, a “history mystery” about Georgia’s children throughout time. You, the teacher, will not be needed to carry out the lesson. Your role will simply to be present in case questions or concerns arise.

When and Where? During the regular school day and, yes, in your own classroom.

How much? There are 2 plans:
*Plan 1: $5.00 per student for the one-hour session and all materials. The teacher receives a free copy of Secret Stories from Peachtree Creek and a graphic organizer and materials for review.   Secret Stories from Peachtree Creek could be a great addition to your Language Arts/Social Studies instruction and this workshop offers front-loading information, which will help your students get the most out of the book.
Plan 2: $10.00 per student, with each student also receiving a copy of Secret Stories from Peachtree Creek. This is, by far, the best value.  Although the book is rather difficult for most second-graders to read on their own, teachers I know are reading each chapter aloud while the students follow along in their own books and then they read it with their parents for homework.

Note:  If your school can't afford the prices above, contact me and I'll see if we can work something out.
