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.

Welcome! My name is Marcia Mayo. I live in Atlanta, Georgia with my husband, Joe.  We like spend out time with our families (we have 6 grandchildren between us!), going out to eat, and traveling.  So far we have been to France, Spain, Peru, Canada, and Ireland.  We have also been to quite a few US states on both the east and west coasts.  And everywhere we go, including out to eat, history is happening all around us.

As a retired teacher, my mission is to help children understand that history happened to real people and it occurred right where they live now.

My book, Secret Stories from Peachtree Creek, came about from my frustration with trying to help the second graders I taught understand that history didn't just have to do with kings and presidents and it wasn't always from long ago and far away.

The book is a fictional account of the lives of six children, all living at the exact same place. I like to say that "the story isn't real, but the history is." And I made it a mystery to keep them reading.
