The emphasis on sources from a specific state demonstrates how individual states fit into the nation’s story and the commonalities of our history. Each of the six eras covered include a brief content video, mini game, and analysis of primary sources to build critical thinking skills. The mini games allow students to take on the role of citizen, soldier, reporter, business owner, and elected official.
