What can I expect to read in The Yesteryear Gazette?
We created The Yesteryear Gazette to disguise important historical knowledge with FUN and interesting topics that kids will love! Each monthly issue will contain articles and facts from the corresponding month throughout history! The information will be written in a vintage, fun, kid friendly lingo that will be sure to add some flair to learning history. Below are examples from our very first August issue:
Three fun history articles. Example:
First successful hot air balloon journey across the Atlantic! (August 1978)
Mysterious theft of the Mona Lisa! (August 1911)
Oxygen is discovered! (August 1774)
Three serious history articles. Example:
Japan Surrenders! V-J Day (August 1945)
Christopher Columbus sets sail! (August 1492)
The Declaration of Independence signed! (August 1776)
Three famous birthdays with short biographies and fun facts. Example:
Annie Oakley (August 1860)
Napoleon Bonaparte (August 1769)
T.E Lawrence of Arabia (August 1888)
One weird historical law. Example:
In India, it is considered illegal if a villager fails to warn his fellow neighbor about a locust swarm by beating on a drum!
One crossword or word find puzzle that contains key learning words from the paper.
...And anything else we can possibly squeeze in!
