History is being made right before our eyes - from Michael Phelps' record-breaking 8 gold medals during the 2008 Summer Olympics to the election of our nation's first African-American president.
Take time to discuss the significance of historical events with your children. Collect newspaper clippings and place them in a scrapbook. Have your children write about the event, and record their feelings, whether positive or negative.
Don't forget to include family history in your scrapbook. You are creating a record your family will treasure for generations to come!
