Ready to beef up on American history as the nation gears up for July 4th celebrations? Here’s one of our all-time favorite resources for learning about the United States, from the Declaration of Independence to the present.
But before your kid goes on snooze mode, thinking of endless texts and yawner information, what’s so insanely cool about Manifest Destiny is that it tells our country’s story in maps, not words. Well, there are some words, but very few, and they accompany the 141 maps that illustrate key events in our county, such as the Louisiana Purchase and the Civil War.
Highly interactive, logically designed and just plain fun, the maps will appeal to both parents and students who can click through and learn about what states were annexed when, who seceded first during the Civil War, and how our country came to its modern-day measurements. A true gem for learning about history in a fun way.
