I thought this would be a great time to share some other resources I have found to use in our Government/American history studies this year.
iCivics Is packed full of great resources for learning. The best part they are all free. Games, lesson plans, unit studies and much much more.
PBS LearningMedia There is no end to the vast array of information on Government on this site. videos, audio documents.
Hillsdale Collage These are free online college courses. We have not used them yet but I have them earmarked for High School. If you have older students this would be a great place for them to get High School credits. Not all of these free courses are on government so it is an all around great resource.
Colonial Williamsburg Another site that is full of many different resources from videos to games and all kinds of things inbetween. I am highlighting the games here for younger students we Loved them.
Ben Franklin interactive timeline This is by far one of the best interactive timelines I have ever seen. If you are studying Ben Franklin this is a must use resource.
Mission US This is a great online game that lest you play like you where really there. Many different periods in US history to play.
National Constitution Center This site has many activities as well as games, videos, and a very good blog. But our favorite part is the interactive constitution where we can read all about the constitution and its parts.
I know there are many many resources out there for learning about US history and our Government and our Constitution. These are just the ones our family has found useful in our home. What are some sites you have found helpful for learning about these things? I would love to hear from you and make our list grow.
