Hold on to your hats for a breakneck tour of 500 years of American history in this fast, funny - and informative - tour de farce!

In one high-energy hour, your students will come face to face with Columbus, the Pilgrims, the Salem "witches" (and their 1950s HUAC counterparts), George Washington, the Boston Tea Partiers, the framers of the Constitution, the Missouri Compromisers, Levi Strauss and his Blue Jeans, and the Gettysburg Address - and that's just in the first 35 minutes!

Add in Thomas Edison, the invention of the movies, WW I & II, the Great Depression ("don't worry, nothing like this will ever happen again..."), FDR, the Cold War, the Boomers, Martin Luther King, Jr, Vietnam, 1970s fashion, Reagan and Gorbachev, and the invention of the internet, and you've got a funny- but still useful - overview of the greatest social experiment in world history.

Geared for kids grades 3 to 8, this should get your students curious about some of the fun backstories of US History. Available at locations throughout Chicagoland and Milwaukee, or available to tour to you.
