I’ve shared some of my favorite American History apps and here is another that’s worth checking out. American History Interactive Timeline (opens in new tab) lets users swipe through a timeline of significant events in the history of the United States. It has a combination of primary source documents and informational text that is placed across a timeline. This app can help children understand the sequence of events in history and introduce them to some famous figures. The first two sections of the app are free and a paid upgrade is needed to unlock the rest.
Here are two Common Core aligned QR Scanner Scavenger hunts to use with mobile devices:
