Villains From History

I wanted to teach a history class for our co-op that would be fun and engaging for the kids, so I thought, “why not villains!”

We will be learning about some of history’s most well known villains, such as Nero, Bloody Mary, and Blackbeard. As we learn about them we will do some note booking with pictures so the kids can remember what we learned about each villain.

What I’m most excited about with this class is we will be creating our own villain Trading Card type game – giving attributes to each villain that then having them face off in battles or challenges. We will also be creating a timeline game.
