When we studied the Revolutionary War era last year, one of our favorite resources was our Liberty’s Kids DVD set. Each day we would read a little bit in our history book, do some activities, and watch history come to live through the Liberty’s Kids episodes.
Right now Amazon has the four-DVD set on sale for $5. It ships free with Prime or with a $35 Super Saver Shipping order.
Travel back in time to witness history in the making with Benjamin Franklin’s teenage reporters as they confront the real and physical dangers of the American Revolution. Trapped in opposite sides of the war – James, an American colonist, and Sarah, a young English reporter – are forced to choose between friendship and allegiance to their countries. All while they try to look after mischievous Henri, a French boy whose comical escapades constantly lead to trouble. Journey through history and discover the high points of the American Revolution through this fun and animated educational adventure!
It was fun for Jason & I to listen to the characters’ voices and try to figure out who the voices were. The series boasts guest voices of Walter Cronkite, Annette Bening, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Crystal, Ben Stiller and Liam Neeson.
