Teaching kids geography and history with Napoleon, Wellington and Metternich
More late afternoon fun with a costumed history and geography lesson – this time with Napoleon Buonaparte, the Duke of Wellington and diplomat Klemens von Metternich. The kids can say where each key 19th century person is from, their job, why they were important and what happened to them (including the battle of Waterloo, Napoleon’s prison at Elba and Saint Helena’s, and the restructuring of Europe through Metternich’s diplomacy.)
Lots of geography – from Europe to the south Atlantic Ocean – covered here, while real-life history can compete any story the boys can invent (and they can invent some great stories 🙂 ).
