No Turning Back Mission 7

This seven-game series invites players to take on the role of young people during critical moments in U.S. history: a printer’s apprentice in Boston in 1770, a Cheyenne youth during the Battle of Little Bighorn, an immigrant garment worker in New York City, a resident of the Manzanar prison camp in 1941, and a participant in Mississippi’s civil rights movement. Designed for middle school students, the game teaches both standards-aligned social history content and historical thinking skills. An extensive curriculum of classroom activities and primary documents supports each game.

Mission US is produced by THIRTEEN/WNET in partnership with ASHP/CML, Electric Funstuff, and EDC Center for Children and Technology.
