The Smithsonian has released a new app this year to help students learn about the Civil War. This iPad app is perfect for middle and high school students exploring this time period and using primary source documents in their studies. Ripped Apart: A Civil War Mystery takes users through the artifacts stored at the Smithsonian and presents information on themes associated with this time period. It’s a great way to introduce students to the Civil War or build upon the knowledge they already have. Whether this app is used to supplement traditional resources in your school or recommended as an at home extension for families with iPads, Ripped Apart: A Civil War Mystery can boost student engagement.
