History Channel’s This Day in History


A slice of history, every day.

Start every morning off with a short history lesson while you’re waiting for the bus or eating breakfast. History.com’s This Day in History gives historical recaps of important events, inventions, and people for each day in the calendar year. Learn when Sesame Street debuted (November 10th), when X-rays were discovered (November 8th), when the first U.S. train robbery went down (October 6th), and when the first skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus rex was discovered (August 12th). While some topics (wars, The Holocaust, assassinations, etc.) are more complex and will require additional research and more in-depth conversation, This Day in History’s brief lessons helps teach that we’re becoming part of history with each passing moment.
