How to Use This Course
Figures in History provides little hands full-color cutouts or blank cutouts to color that they can use for hands-on history fun, similar to paper dolls. Each unit includes some facts about an historic person as well as word puzzles or other activities. This class is designed for preschool through lower elementary.
Welcome to Historic Heroes and Heroines!
Thank you for joining SchoolhouseTeachers.com for our series of weekly hands-on activities, Historic Heroes and Heroines, that focus on a notable figure from history. My name is Cathy Diez-Luckie from Figures In Motion. It’s a privilege to be able to share my love of history and art with you each month with projects centered around a different character that has influenced the world we live in.
Whether you are studying ancient or medieval history, the American Revolution or the Civil War, it is my hope that these weekly lessons will help you provide your children with meaningful activities to accompany your history studies. We hope that these activities will enrich your child’s learning experience:
- Standing Cutout: The first of your weekly lessons will include making a standing cutout of our hero or heroine in both a colored and color-it-in version. These cutouts may be used for dramatic plays, reenactments, or just for fun.
- Word Search Puzzle: In the second week’s activity, your child will be provided a word search puzzle with words relating to the life of our hero or heroine. An answer key is provided.
- Coloring Page: A coloring page of our hero or heroine will be given in week three.
- Accent on Art: The fourth of the weekly lessons will consist of a project relating to the life of the hero or heroine such as a painting, mosaic, or sculpture made of the character or associated with his or her life.
Our desire is to provide you with the highest quality history supplements that engage your children while they learn about historic heroes and heroines.
Blessings to you and your family,
Standing cutouts, word puzzles, coloring sheets, written fact sheet, and more
