12 Experience Points
Historians try to understand the past. We combine many forms of evidence – writing, photography, scientific data, and others – to craft a sense of what happened and when.
Storytelling is an ancient art form created long before words could be written. Early storytelling combined speech, singing, music, dancing, and theatre as a way to share culture and life lessons from generation to generation. Throughout history, professional storytellers have journeyed to faraway lands to learn and share stories, news, and ideas!
