Ok I'd give the teacher who designed this exercise a reward. Wanna spark kid's interest in history? This is a great idea.Some things are easier (and more interesting) to learn by this method than being told or reading about them. I bet they remember this much longer than any fact twitter.com/PhilRead/statu…
