TIPS and HINTS for searching online:

When searching online for information about your time period, make sure you use keywords that will find information about daily life, not just the political history of your time period. Try some of the following keywords:

"daily life"       food       jobs      "home life"      "living conditions"      songs      music     poems      culture      childhood      "impact on life"

Use the keywords in combination with your time period. Your search will look something like this:

"ancient rome" "daily life"

"world war 2" "daily life"

And don't forget to try    sites:kids    to find websites for kids.
