Go Back in Time

Travel back in time to visit five of the families who lived at 16 Elm Street in Ipswich, Massachusetts over the past 200 years in this interactive game from the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History. Students will match primary source materials and museum artifacts to the appropriate time period in order to learn about the everyday lives of Americans from different eras of our nation's history. This activity is one of the educational resources included in the online exhibition entitled Within These Walls.

Kingston - What a cool site! I would think you could do that here as well - with a historic home, or farm (if its still around). If you could trace it back, you could even include what Native American tribe lived on the land before the house was ever built.
