One resource we used to supplement and to add more hands-on learning for my Kindergartner was Evan Moor's "History Pockets". I previously blogged about our very first "pockets" about Life In Plymouth. You can see that post here.
Our next unit was "Ancient Civilization". It was a very simple introduction how people lived long, long ago.
There civilizations are Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, Rome, China and Aztec. There is also an additional pocket titled "What is history" that covers what makes something ancient and talks about how many of the early civilizations had many things in common.
Each pocket includes vocabulary (words to know), a booklet (2nd grade reading level), additional background information sheet for teacher, puppets of people of the time and a variety of hands-on projects.
Here are some pictures of Caleb's pockets and some of the projects for "Mesopotamia".
