This is a topic I enjoyed preparing and the teachers found interesting. From locating ancestors to searching for history, from letters, journals, and especially archival photographs, people of all ages can have fun and learn at the same time. Here is a list of websites that Early Years teachers took as a handout, after the workshop session was over. http://www.diigo.com/list/aledoux/historical-documents"> If anyone has used archival documents or photographs in their lessons/learning experiences, or may have other information or resources to add to my list please drop me a line.

Ah, a kindred spirit. I love using primary sources in the classroom and have a blog about it called A Very Old Place. You can also see projects we've done using primary sources here including Guardians of Freedom, CSI: Cemetery Scene Investigation, Titanic in the Classroom and Exploring Leonardo.
Hi Nancy and thanks so much for your response. I will be checking out your blog shortly, and I and my teachers thank you for expanding our horizons on this topic and the much needed resources. We need to pass the message on to others that history does not have to be boring, and it can be introduced in the early years, in a creative and challenging way. Thanks again!
