This unit lesson will lessen the difficulty students with special needs have learning about and understanding history. By researching family history, students with special needs will realize that history delves in the past and that everyone has a history that can be passed down to families, friends, and historians.

The suggested activities, starting with each student investigating the history of someone in his/her family which will be displayed and presented by the student to the class. This will provide a foundation from which to explore historical events by having each student identify any event in the local, state, national, or world history their relative might have witnessed or with which s/he was involved. The teacher then arranges these historic events into a timeline to acquaint the students with how to research and display historical events.
