Local History Activities

Local History


  1. Create a family timeline as far as you can go. How many generations? How many people do you know now? Has anything about your family surprised you?

  2. Research the history of your street/village/town – what is your area famous for? Are there any significant individuals in your area?

  3. Compare and contrast how your local area has changed over time – has it always had the same populations? Have the buildings changed?

  4. Where is your nearest war memorial? Is it small or large? What does that tell you about your area? Do you know of anyone that was involved in any of the wars?

  5. How is history being made right now? How has your local area been affected by the Coronavirus?
