Mount Shasta Herald

Kids are typically so carefree and have very little idea about their surroundings, unless they are taught. Teaching doesn’t have to come from a book, and most times the lessons are more easily learned when they are from direct experiences. Start with a civic lesson and a map, so relationships to states and counties and cities become visual. Visit historical sites in your area that will spark further interest in your town. Read about these and other ideas to build a sense of community and hometown pride in “Let your children learn about their town”.
