When I was a kid, I loved living history opportunities (especially Upper Canada Village!). I loved to read historical fiction. And then I got into the history textbook phase in school and loathed history.
As long as I continue homeschooling, we shall skip the text book chapters with mandatory reading comprehension questions after the assigned reading. We'll stick with living history, living books and historical fiction. My goal is for them to continue to love history as much as they do know.
Here there are, living history during heritage days and loving every minute.
