Georgia Race Through Time
Above: the opening page of our new game
A Game-Based Learning Experience
Savannah and Peaches need your help! They have been invited to participate in a race to find historical artifacts across the great state of Georgia. 

If they beat the clock and some tough competition to win the race, Savannah and Peaches will win $100,000 and naming rights to a wing of the Cashworth  Museum  that will protect the artifacts for years to come. 

Aligned to Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) for 8th grade social studies, the 
game leverages primary source documents and rich historical content for an engaging, story-based, educational experience. Georgia educators and students were included in the development process, allowing crucial feedback to guide production. The game was designed to work across web and mobile platforms and is available online and on mobile devices. Click to play.
Standards Correlation Crosswalk Guide
Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE)
The Georgia Studies: Our State and Our Nation digital textbook and affiliated library will soon be released with alignments to the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE). Currently correlated with the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS), we are updating the alignments unit by unit. In the meantime, we have provided a printable PDF "crosswalk guide" to help educators understand our revisions for the coming 2017-18 school year. Click to access.

New Virtual Field Trips
Regions and Physical Features
Now Available
Two new series, including 17 associated virtual field trips, have recently launched! Both series focus on the geography of Georgia. 

The Physical Features and Regions of Georgia virtual field trips take students on a journey throughout the state of Georgia, guiding  them through the five physiographic regions and explaining the relative locations of each, as  well as their environmental significance, notable characteristics, and connections to Georgia's historical development and identity. 

Together, these virtual field trips offer a robust interactive experience, including video footage, picture galleries, interactive maps, and discussion questions.  To access all virtual field trips, including user guides, visit our  website .
