• You will find that each chapter is introduced by a young girl or a boy. • Each chapter is divided into sections. Read, discuss and understand each section before proceeding to the next. • Some chapters contain definitions. • Many chapters contain a portion from a source, clues from which historians write history. Read these carefully, and discuss the questions they contain. • Many of our sources are visual. Each illustration has a story to tell. • You will also find maps. Look at these and try to locate the places mentioned in the lessons. • Many chapters contain boxes with interesting, additional information. • All chapters end with a section titled Elsewhere. This tells you about something that was happening in another part of the world. • At the end of each chapter, you will find a list of keywords. These are to remind you of important ideas/ themes introduced in the lesson. • You will also find some dates listed at the end of each chapter. • In each chapter there are intext questions and activities that are highlighted. Spend some time discussing these as you go along. • And there is a small section titled Imagine. This is your chance to go back into the past and figure out what life would have been like. • You will also find three kinds of activities listed at the end of each chapter — Let’s recall, Let’s discuss and Let’s do. So, you will find that there is a lot to read, see, think about and do. We do hope you enjoy it.
