Educational TV: America - The Story of Us

Over the summer, we have been watching the History Channel series, America: The Story of Us.  The series contains 12 episodes starting with the Pilgrims and Jamestown and goes through current times.

The episodes are a combination of computer graphics and live action with actors recreating important moments in time.  While the episodes cannot cover every detail from each time period, they are captivating.  They include unique details that aren't found in most textbooks such as George Washington's spy network.

On their website, the History Channel includes recaps of each episode, video clips, classroom guides, quizzes and more.

These videos can be seen on iTunes and Netflix.
