without literature?

So you're not teaching in conjunction with a novel? I've never taught it aside from literature, but I would think that you could read them some excerpts from Historical Fiction pieces and discuss what makes them fit the genre. Then have each child pick a period in history and do a little research on that topic. From there make an outline of what will happen in the story. Might be a good idea to pick whatever time period they are studying in Social Studies, and maybe to write a short one as a class first. Good luck.
