A Little Bit About Mission U.S.
Mission US is a multimedia project featuring free interactive adventure games set in different eras of U.S. history. The first game, Mission 1: "For Crown or Colony?," puts the player in the shoes of Nat Wheeler, a 14-year-old printer's apprentice in 1770 Boston. As Nat navigates the city and completes tasks, he encounters a spectrum of people living and working there when tensions mount before the Boston Massacre. Ultimately, the player determines Nat's fate by deciding where his loyalties lie.
We place a huge value on education in our home, so I was thrilled to learn of Mission US.; a new online gaming experience that takes the player on a journey through Historical time periods and events in United States History.
Though this gaming series is geared towards older children, B loves History and was eager to check it out with me . There are some elements, that are recognizably only processed adequately by older children (as suggested), I would recommend introducing it to younger age groups as well~ it's never too early to learn about the History of our country; the animation and interactive elements definitely captivated B's attention!
I can only say that I wish Mission US was around when I was in school! This gaming series takes a subject that is pivotal in the education of our children and steps outside of the box; teaching them in a fun, interactive, and more relatable way for younger generations.
Mission US is entirely free. Anyone can register to play Mission US at no cost!
