What do you get when you mix a bunch of talented and adorable elementary school kids, unique costumes, first-rate singing, and factual history? You get Kidz History of the Revolutionary War. Holly and Heather DeLuca have produced the most entertaining children's video history product I have ever watched. Their Kidz History appeals to a wide variety of ages. My four children range from 5 to 15, and my homeschool group has children from 3 to 17. They all enjoyed the video.
The video begins with Henry Historian helping a student with her report on the revolutionary war. Henry transports Jamie and her sister into his quantum refraction room (think imagination station from Adventures in Odyssey) where he sends the girls back to the 1700's. When they arrive, they participate in the events leading up to the Revolutionary War; the Battle of Bunker Hill, the writing of the Declaration of Independence, the surrender of the British, and more.
I think most elementary and middle school students will enjoy Kidz History of the Revolutionary War. One warning though, the beginning is a bit silly. Once you get into the 1700's things go quickly from silly to enjoyable. Kidz History gets two thumbs up for originality and quality of production. Plans are in the works for a second history production. Good work Holly and Heather!
