How can I learn more about history? 

 

Generally, history has a stigma of being a bit boring and monotonous. Thankfully, there are countless resources available that prove it’s quite the opposite!

History is a record of amazing events and people that shaped our world into what it is today. There’s a lot to learn from studying history. ✨

By learning the significance of history, we can educate ourselves for the future. But if a love of all things old doesn’t come naturally, you may be wondering how you can spark your own interest in history.

Here are 5 ways to get stuck into history today: 

 

1. Attend an interactive museum

 

Interactive museums are museums that focus less on reading and information and more on engaging and participating. Interactive museums are great because they can really help bring history to life. 🎉

A hands-on experience will not only be entertaining – it will be a memorable experience that will help you to learn things without even realising it.

There are several great museums for children in London, so you’ll be spoiled for choice! 

 

2. Watch videos

 

Do you enjoy watching videos and clips on the internet? They can easily be educational! YouTube is full of educational history video channels, 📺 offering plenty of options for you to enjoy. Here are some of our favourites:

  •   Schmoop: This channel pairs historical stories with entertaining graphics, creating an engaging experience for kids of all ages.
  •   Epic History TV: These exciting movie-like videos of historic events provide interesting and realistic imagery that can really bring the events to life.
  •   Homeschool Pop: These videos have cute animations that make this channel ideal for everyone.

 

3. Read stories about historical characters

 

Everyone loves a superhero! 🦸 Fictitious heroes like Superman or Elsa are commonly loved, but there’s no shortage of real-life superheroes in history.

A great way to learn more about these heroes is through reading. Not sure where to begin? Check out the Little People, Big Dreams series – it’s very popular! 

If you’d really like to learn more about history, you may also consider online tutoring. We have a great group of tutors skilled in teaching a range of subjects, including history, to students of all ages. 

 

4. Explore interactive history websites

 

Did you know that you can play educational, interactive games online? 🌐 Use that screen time for good and try out these websites:

These interesting, educational websites are fun to use and will help you learn at the same time.

Keep in mind that learning about history is not about memorising facts and dates – although that might come in handy later. Learning about history might make you want to ask more questions about the world and make you a more inquisitive person.

 

5. Visit historical sights

 

Going to see a historical sight in person will allow you to explore while you learn. 🏛️ Don’t worry if you’re unable to travel to nationally renowned sites or parks – take pride in exploring the area near you, learning about the history of local communities along the way.

It’s a great idea to explore things as you learn about them. If something interests you, stick with it and find out as much as you can!
