Underground Railroad: Road To Freedom
$89 ~ Grades 4-10 ~ 22 min. ~ Leader's Guide
Imagine the amazement of a High School student who uncovers evidence that the Underground Railroad ran right through her home town. An ordinary school assignment quickly balloons into this outstanding student video. The video investigates both slavery and the Underground Railroad. Equally as important, it infuses students with the excitement of discovering history in their own backyard.

Pizza Wars: History Repeats Itself
$89 ~ Grades 8-12 ~ 16 min.~ Leader's Guide
How far will kids go to earn some pizza? Will they go to war? This video documents high school students engaged in a mock global war simulation. The student-host stops the action and asks viewers to compare the mock battle to historical fact. The video covers conflicts from 1860-1991 by introducing the nations, the leaders, the motivations, and the debates that continue today regarding distribution of world resources and the use of force.

"The scope and logistics of this project are impressive and will captivate viewers." School Library Journal
