Why do we teach history and geography?
History repeats itself!
We want to equip our kids to make wise choices based on history.
By studying cultures, events, and people of the past we can teach our children to pattern their lives, “based on history”.
History gives us an endless supply of examples of wise and stupid decisions of people that have walked this world before us. Let’s teach our children to look for examples in the lives of those who have gone before us.

God is the ultimate historian! Read your Bible with your children and research history mentioned.
There is so much to learn about God and the character of a follower of Christ wrapped up within the subject of history. You could spend an entire lifetime studying any one area of history.
When exposing your children to important historical events, be prepared to pause and dive deeper into an area of interest!
Anything that is important to God is important to us and therefore worthy to teach to our children.
