Written by a first year Classical Conversations Victoria mother:
“Cool little story I wanted to share.
I was at the park today with my 5 year old and I was reading him the history of the park engraved on a rock there. He recognized the date 1859 and excitedly reminded me of his memory work and was able to relate that date with the age of Imperialism, British rule of India, and Queen Victoria!
This little moment really encouraged me that he will be able to relate more and more things in his own life & community to the bigger picture of history as he grows and learns! And that teaching a world history timeline to a 5 year old isn’t pointless. Go CC!”
