Aimed at children aged six and upwards (though great for anyone interested in history), the History For Kids: Invaders and Settlers Course has been written to keep young readers excited and engaged, and is packed full of fun facts, enjoyable exercises, and videos to watch.
Children will learn about some of the greatest invasions of all time and find out what the invaders did when they took over a country. They’ll learn about significant events and get creative as they learn – completing fun tasks, including creating artwork, doing word searches, carrying out colouring tasks, taking quizzes and much more!
Follow the Roman Empire’s expansion across Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Learn about the groups of Barbarians who took over the Eastern and Western sides of the Roman Empire, conquered parts of France and Spain and even sent people to England.
Discover the Ancient Greeks and how they ruled across many lands but also gave us so much, such as the Olympics, theatre, philosophy and language.
Explore Britain and the Saxon invaders who settled and formed a ruling monarchy, and how, using their inventions and specialised military conditioning, Vikings invaded Britain.
Observe the Ottoman domination of Europe, Asia and Northern Africa between the 14th and early 20th centuries, and its demise at the end of World War I.
Examine the creation and amassed power of the British Empire and how it extended its global influence. Look back at 300 years of Norman Britain and what the Doomsday Book tells us about life in Britain during the 11th century.
Discover how and why Britain, France, Germany, Spain, and Italy took charge of multiple African countries after the Great War, and the feuds this caused between the nations.
Finally, explore World War II and how Hitler influenced the start of this terrible war.
