Welcome to History Class

Learn about the past in a way that suits you

Each lesson, you can choose how you learn: your options may include watching a documentary, engaging with primary sources, researching online or simply reading high-quality websites. No matter which you choose, you will have a specific worksheet to help you complete the lesson. Afterwards, test your knowledge with a short quiz and then enjoy extra activities to fuel your interest in the past.
