Ratings & Reviews
|Review:||This game was very interesting and informative--especially when it comes to understanding the physical components behind physical articles of history--such as the Star Spangled Banner. Though the information is not extensive--it does allow one to understand the types of material that were used way back when--as well as methods of preservation for artifacts. This activity highlights the importance of preservation and the educational benefits that others receive from the efforts of those who work to conserve our history.|
|Review:||This is great activity to do in a classroom or just for general knowledge. I appreciate the "in the classroom" link that brings this activity to every grade level. Very general information, but easy for a short general knowledge quiz and understanding. Really enjoy the interaction of the flag on the initial question, wish there could be more in regards to that throughout questions.|
