- Another great video is Scholastic Storybook Treasure’s So You Want to Be President which is great for ages 3-8. Read my full review in my past post, Educating About All Things Presidential for Presidents’ Day.
- John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum– Located just south of Boston offers online visitors the opportunity to learn about what a day in the life of President John F. Kennedy was like by paging through his White House Diary that includes “digital scans of his actual Appointment Diary for any given day as well as video, audio, and photos of the day’s events.” Click through to We Choose the Moon to follow the historic moon landing, photos, and footage that was the result of President Kennedy challenging Congress to put a man on the moon before the end of the decade. This site recreates the historical Apollo 11 lunar landing on July 20, 1969. Or visit at your leisure through a virtual museum tour.
- Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello– While you may not be able to travel to Charlottesville to visit Monticello in person, the interactive Monticello Explorer provides a 3D tour of the house and more information can be found in my full review, Virtual Field Trip: Monticello. Also be sure to check out The Monticello Classroom!
