Write a Historical Play

Help your child put historical events into context by writing a play together based on what she's learning in Social Studies. For increased benefit, create costumes and scenery that also represent the era your child is studying. Then, when you're done writing the play together, reenact it for the whole family. At the end, give everyone a chance to ask your child questions about the events that took place in the play. This will help your child think more critically about the time period she's studying.
