What skills do genealogists use? How can we teach them to children in an age appropriate way? This month’s #FHforChildren blog link up is all about teaching kids to do genealogy research.
What are the core skills of genealogy that children can learn from a young age? What age would you start teaching these at and how do you do so with your children? Share your ideas for teaching kids how to do genealogy.
Here are some ideas for posts:
- Handouts or other printable that help children learn a genealogy skill
- Activities or lessons that you’ve done in the past to help children build family history skills
- Experiences that children and teens you know have had with building their genealogy skills
- How genealogy skills can be learned through play
- How teens and older children can gain experience with genealogy research through project based learning
- Lesson plan for children to learn about geography, curiosity, asking questions, interviewing, tree analysis, record analysis, data entry, name and date standards, transcription, etc.
- Websites, apps, and technology tools that can help young people develop genealogy skills
