Historical Figure / Facebook Project - kids create a Facebook page for a famous person (scientist, historian, author) or character in a book they've read. Comes with blank template, an example page, and directions... I'm thinking this is a great substitute activity!
Learning history is more interesting with these fun games - kids role-play as historical figures, handle the tough situations under the historical setting, learn the history first-hand while playing games. Great resource for school social study class and homeschool.
