Here are some resources for young learners. Most are geared for third or fifth grade students.
All kids love the new and fun Mission US – Official Web Game developed in partnership with New York City public television station THIRTEEN.
We also recommend using the This Day In History - short videos found on the Home Page which describe an 18th century historical and revolutionary event for every day of the year - as an entertaining teaching tool.
Have an iPad - then have kids use the NEW and OFFICIAL IPhone app on iTunes.
If you would like other easy-to-read articles about other aspects of the formation of the nation, please let us know.
