Prevent Summer Learning Loss ~ Tip #12 ~ History

Every town has a history. Do a little research this summer and find out about yours. Here are a few ideas to get you started. Use your local libraries, museums, cemeteries, and senior citizens.
  1. Where did your town or city get its name?
  2. Who was the founder and when?
  3. Who were some of the original residents and what did they do?
  4. Are there any famous people from your town or city?
  5. How have most people made a living over the years?
  6. Why do you think people settled in this area?
  7. What was in this area before your town or city?
