Our Hands-On History Activities for world history are split into 4 major historical time periods, all arranged in chronological order.

In the 4 main time periods, the Ancient World is split even further because there are so many hands-on history activities for that era!

And there are some world history activities for general topics that you can use for any time period and theme, as well as some ideas for some world culture activities. Use these world history activities and crafts to make learning fun for kids. And the best part is that most of these are absolutely FREE!

Oh, and if you need an activity based on American history, those are separate. Click the image below for US History crafts and projects:
