Today you’ll be going back in time to become a spy
for General George Washington.
Can you help the Patriots win against terrible odds?
The ones who make it through alive…win.
Work undercover as a Patriot spy. But don’t let the British Army catch you, or they will hang you.
So begins our Time Travel Field Trip to 1775.
It’s unlike any history lecture, textbook or presentation you’ve ever seen. Why?
First of all, it’s incredibly engaging. History is so often taught as a fait accompli, something where the conclusion is already known, something that happened a long time ago to other people.
This is different.
- Fun to learn and easy to teach
- Accurate and detailed history, complete with primary sources
- Meets the standards you have to teach anyway…but in a way that makes students want to continue playing history during their free time.
Appropriate for grades 5 and up.
Requires only one class period.
