History ideas

  • Create a timeline showing the main events in your life, from the day you were born to today.
  • Choose a famous person from the past and write a diary from their point of view.
  • Keep a diary about your time in isolation. Think back to our work on Anne Frank's diary, who was in hiding for two years. What will you include in your diary? What have you done to make this time easier for yourself and the others around you?
  • Find some fascinating facts about your favourite period from history and make a poster to share them.
  • Think of some questions that you could ask a member of your family about their own life. What memories do they have? What are the key events in their life?
  • Play “Would you rather?” Give each player a choice of two options (for example, “Would you rather go for a walk in the snow, or on the beach? “. They have to choose one and say why. The ideas can be as silly as you like!
  • What hopes and dreams do you have for the future? Draw a picture to show what you hope life will be like in 10, 20 or even 50 years!
