Mission US: A Revolutionary Way to Learn History

Review:

Mission US is a FREE multimedia project featuring free interactive adventure games set in different eras of U.S. history. The first game, Mission 1: “For Crown or Colony?,” puts the player in the shoes of Nat Wheeler, a 14-year-old printer’s apprentice in 1770 Boston. As Nat navigates the city and completes tasks, he encounters a spectrum of people living and working there when tensions mount before the Boston Massacre.  Ultimately, the player determines Nat’s fate by deciding where his loyalties lie.

For teachers, the website provides information and materials to support the use of Mission 1 in your classroom. Download all the teacher materials as a DOC or PDF (over 300 pages).

Here’s a video on how to play it:
