Learn History through Storytelling!
What better way to learn history than through the stories that have been handed down through the ages. We recommend students use the "hook-date" method to organize historical facts and stories in their mind and for families to discover history together by sharing great stories. See chart below for some of our favorites stories organized by the ten "hook dates" of Ancient History.
(Hook-dates are part of the Kimber History Curriculum.)
Students are encouraged to memorize the hook dates with their key personalities and dates. They will be amazed at how easy it is for all the stories to fall into place with these hook-dates in mind.

Discover where these exciting events take place by completing a map activity
