Where To Go On Your History Trip

Young children may find it difficult to imagine how people lived in the past in today's technology fuelled world. Facts and figures simply aren't enough to create a true understanding of the history, the people, and the environment that has shaped our world today. 

A school trip to a historical site can put what they have been learning into context, making it much more understandable.
