What better way for kids to learn about the American Revolution then to role play? This AWESOME online game puts kids right in the middle of Boston in 1770. Kids will need to register, but they don't need an email address.
Learning history is more interesting with these fun games - kids role-play as historical figures, handle the tough situations under the historical setting, learn the history first-hand while playing games. Great resource for school social study class and homeschool.
