American History

We Choose the Moon

This site (part of the JFK Presidential Library) lets you relive the Apollo 11 mission through photos and video. You follow a virtual spacecraft through different points of the mission, look at it from different angles, and focus on hotspots to see and hear what was happening. A great way to experience history and science!

Mission US

A free, online game where kids take on the role of young people in different eras of American history. Designed for jr. high level students, this resource includes extensive teacher resources such as document based activities, discussion questions, writing prompts and more. Looks like a terrific way to learn US history!

History Animated

This nice little free resource has flash animations of military history. It's limited to just a few events (the Crusades, American Revolution, Civil War, and World War II) but the animations are nicely done and informative.
