Mission US

I think I said a few posts back that History seemed to be at the trailing edge of online content.  Well, I may have to take that back.  The more I look (I’m planning a unit on the American Revolution for the Fall), the more I find.  Here’s Mission US, a fantastic online game about US History brought to you by WNET, the New York PBS station.  They have two missions up so far, with more planned for this 2013 and 2014.  The first mission takes place in 1770 and is about a young man in Massachusetts, trying to decide which side to fight on after the Boston Massacre.  The second mission is about a young slave girl fleeing to Ohio after the Fugitive Slave Act.  Great for Upper Elementary or Middle School US History studies.  And totally free.
