Fun Videos to Supplement History Learning

As we approach fall break (we are in the Southern Hemisphere) I am preparing our “American History Learning Surge!” While my kids have already completed the American History boxes for their grade level, we will revisit the games and books and do some activities to reinforce the learning. I plan to start each section with a quick video (see the list below), sing the National Anthem, and recite the Pledge of Allegiance. Then, we will review books and activities in the workbooks. Finally, we will finish with games to help learn States, Presidents, and symbols. Each event reviewed will be put on an illustrated card for our timeline. Stay tuned for pictures!
