How I Use It
This is a great resource to use with my 5th grade students. Often they can get lost when doing google searches for specific pieces of historical information. This app allows them to zero in on the information that they are searching for. It also had great vocabulary definitions for some of the tough revolutionary war vocabulary that 5th graders study. A lot of the information is best for high school, it was ok for 5th grade.
My Take
This is a great teaching tool for older students but can also be used by history enthusiasts! I like that vocabulary, presidents, and timelines can be viewed individually, giving you a better view of specific information of the time in history the students are studying. **There is a legal note that states that the information on the app is all borrowed from creditable online sources. While this does not mean the information is inaccurate, it does mean that it could be.
