FreedomFLIX: History is One Click Away
Do your students ask how people, places, and events impact our lives? Do they have an interest in the history of Ancient Greece, The Bill of Rights, the Underground Railroad, Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg, or the Great Depression?
FreedomFLIX is an online resource for students in grades 4-12. This tool provides 70+ social studies units tied to core standards. Each group includes an introductory video, e-book, articles, primary source documents, vetted web links, project ideas, critical thinking questions, and interactive quizzes to show what the student knows. Students think and respond to questions at a deeper level.
FreedomFLIX supports a wide range of reading levels, vocabulary, and digital content to meet the needs of all learners. There are 10 main subject areas for research:
- Ancient World
- Colonial Era
- Our Democracy
- Westward Expansion
- Slavery and the Civil War
- 20th Century
- Today's World
The resource features a built-in read-aloud option for readers who need support or ELL students.
FreedomFLIX is one of the Grant Wood AEA Online Resources available 24/7 to students and teachers.
