As our children have moved from Preschool through their elementary years, we have relied upon movies to add another dimension to their education. To kick off the school year, we have compiled a list of elementary school history time periods and matched each with our favorite movies that explore that curriculum -- a fun way to give family time and education a boost! We like to keep a few of these films on hand when opportunities for family time sprout up. As you might expect, we have reviewed many of the movies we have included (they appear in blue below -- if you click on the movie title you will be linked to directly to our review). We hope you enjoy our selections, and would love you to click here to send us movie titles that you have used to connect your kids to history.
Here are our favorite movies for bringing history to life:
