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 movies, WW I and II, the Great Depression, FDR, the Cold War, the Civil Rights movement, the Womens Rights movement, hippies, Watergate, Reagan and Gorbachev, and the invention of the internet, and you have a fun - but still useful - overview of the greatest social experiment in world history.

Designed for students in grades 3 through 8, this should get your students curious about some of the fun backstories of US History. Available at locations throughout Chicago, or on tour to to you.
