On YouTube, when you type in American Revolution, there are many videos that popped up. I noticed a series called Liberty Kids that is a cartoon, but it gives students a better way to connect with the material. Kids enjoy watching movies and this is particularly true of cartoons. These videos can be used as a treat, such as on a Friday when students have been working hard all week. It serves as not only a treat but as a reinforcer on the information currently being used. This can also be pinpointed to address certain information being learned as a supplement to the lesson.
