History is all around us…. Can you find out about the History that surrounds you?

Can you interview a family member/ close friend/ someone in the community about their life experiences?

How does it compare to your own?

  3. What trends/ toys were/are the big thing then/now?
  4. What was/is your favourite food?
  5. What did/do you do for fun?
