I first saw this in the Big Deal Book for Spring 2012. MissionUS is a multimedia approach for learning history (grades 5-8) through interactive games. The blog post written by Ryan Dube, September 2010, does a great job of describing the games. The educator guides provide an overview that includes essential questions, background information on historical events, and classroom lessons to complement the missions. There are additional missions planned for release in 2013 and 2014. Head to MissionUS, bookmark it, and return often. You won’t be disappointed.
