Take young learners on a virtual adventure into American History with
Mission US, the "revolutionary" multimedia project previewed at the 2010 Celebration of Teaching & Learning. 
Mission US is a free, new interactive adventure game series designed to improve the understanding of American history by students in grades 5 through 8.  The project website includes a vast suite of classroom resources.  Mission 1: "For Crown or Colony?" helps players understand the social, political and economic conflicts that led to the American Revolution by having them step into the shoes of fictional Nat Wheeler, a young printer's apprentice in colonial Boston.  Missions are standards-based and can be easily incorporated into existing history classes and curricula.  Learn more about how to incorporate the games into your classroom from the Mission US National Educator of the Year at the 2011 Celebration of Teaching and Learning.  Starting September 21st, play Mission USonline -- a revolutionary way to learn history, at www.mission-us.org
