Daily Life Through History

Available to all MOBOCES Component District Secondary Schools

ACCESS through your school library website.


Daily Life through History presents a fresh way of teaching and studying core curriculum topics, engaging students of history by transforming dull and stagnant facts into perceivable realities that may even resemble those with which students are familiar today.

The database explores the daily lives of ordinary people through time and across the globe, providing details about family life, work, food, clothing, sports, language, literature, romance, education, gender roles, social customs, and more that cannot be found elsewhere and are an asset to student research. Furthermore, these details allow students to compare their lives to those of their predecessors and to discern how the past has led to the present, strengthening their abilities to make connections and to identify causal relationships, respectively.
