Program Description: This YAPA Kids history program allows students to explore the past and navigate the complexities and nuances of history. The course teaches past events from a global perspective, so there will always be something new to discover. Through fun games and reenactments, students will sharpen their historical thinking skills, which include analyzing primary source documents and drawing parallels to the present day. Instead of just teaching the facts, local high schoolers will tell engaging stories to kindle a love for history. All you need is a desire to learn, and with that, you’ll be on your way to becoming a great historian!
