Ultimate-Libertys-Kids-Collection1When anyone asks about a resource for kids studying the Revolutionary War, the first one that comes up is Liberty’s Kids.

If you want to watch all the episodes on YouTube, I would recommend the Liberty’s Kids channel.

If you want to PURCHASE the full 40 episodes on DVD from Amazon, it goes on sale pretty often, but right now it is under $7!

There is a Liberty’s Kids website with behind the scenes, games, coloring pages, word search, and riddles.

Mr. Donn has Lesson Plans, Games and Activities.

A PDF from History.com that has ideas for 5 questions to ask for each episode.

Homeschool Unit Studies blog covers Benjamin Franklin and uses Episode 10.

Ali’s Blog has an American Revolutionary War Unit Study.

And BEST OF ALL, Homeschool Freebie of the Day is having a week of FREE Constitutional Goodies for all ages!

 

The list of all things related to Liberty’s Kids is fun enough, but there are some other great resources for your study on the American Revolutionary War.

The American Revolution for Kids: A History with 21 Activities is a book that has some amazing reviews and has activities like making a fringed hunting shirt, powder horns, and more. It brings the history alive in the text, so the book is not just about activities. A wonderful addition to your library. Make sure to check the “look inside” feature. It says for 4th-6th grade, but reviewers under that age have enjoyed it as well.

 

 

Educational Trivia Card Game – Professor Noggin’s American Revolution is a card game that makes learning fun. Questions are in the form of trivia, true or false, and multiple choice. You can play as according to the directions, or give everyone a card around the dinner table and have a “revolutionary” discussion with your meal.

 

Colonial & Revolution Songs (American History Through Folksong) is an audio cd with music and background story. Homeschool parents have raved about it. See the reviews on Amazon.

 

If your children are a little too old for the cartoons, there is another resource from PBS called Liberty! The American Revolution. On the site they have teacher resources, a revolutionary game, timelines, and lots more. You can purchase the DVD’s from them for $40, or an Amazon for $10-15 less. (See the most recent price on Amazon).
