Celebrate International Youth Day with a fun-filled book-making activity! Your child can learn more about notable young people from history with this research project. Start by choosing a historical youth figure. This can include any young person your child is interested in learning more about from any time period, country or culture. After they select a historical young person, your child can start the research process online or at the local library.
