YouTube History Videos for Kids


What are some of your favorite YouTube history videos or series of videos, that you could show to kids? It's not necessarily FOR kids, but I like Crash Course World History. ( ...there's several history series).

Oh, I love Crash Course World History too! I used a videoclip of it about early Christianity for a lesson and the students watched it curiously and quietly.

Just discovered Extra Credits World History. It's clever, fast paced, violence is "cartoonized," no swearing or anything like that to worry about, and my 12 year old actually enjoyed watching it. The areas they are focusing on that I've watched I don't know enough about to comment on accuracy, but so far I'm really liking this series:

Yes but not a good idea to cite them in support of you're argument in historical debate!

But great fun

I'm doing Medieval Europe with my year 8 class and they absolutely love Horrible Histories.
