"Children's Lives at Colonial London Town" Now Available for iPad

"Children's Lives at Colonial London Town: The Stories of Three Families," an interactive exploration into the lives of children who actually lived in colonial Maryland, is now available as a free iPad app on the Apple App Store.

The project was developed through a Teaching American History grant partnership between Anne Arundel County Public Schools, Historic London Town and Gardens, and the UMBC Center for History Education (CHE).

Friendly navigation and enhanced content enliven the stories of three families in London Town, Maryland from before the Revolutionary War. The app includes interactive timelines, historical and thematic maps, image galleries, a clickable glossary of terms and people, and a teaching guide.

The stories were written by Anne Arundel County elementary school teachers in graduate course work at UMBC, with assistance from Historic London Town and Gardens.

A companion website was developed in 2012. The project received the 2012 Social Studies Program of Excellence Award from the Middle States Regional Council for the Social Studies, an affiliate of the National Council for the Social Studies.
