Our country is filled with incredibly talented teachers and students. See how teachers are using the Adventures of Rush Revere Series below for some great classroom ideas!
Send Liberty Around the World with Book 1!
One of our AWESOME teachers in Oklahoma had a great idea! After reading Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, the class decided to make a horse inspired by Liberty and take it with them when they traveled. It has been to places all over the world – even the Great Wall of China!
Celebrations with Book 2!
After finishing Rush Revere and the First Patriots with her class, one of our teachers in Florida decided to make her students Boston Baked Beans! This yummy treat reminded them of the Boston area, specifically the Boston Tea Party that took place in 1773!
Class Reading Competition with Book 3!
One of our fantastic teachers in Arizona had a great idea to do a competition with the other 3rd grade class to see who could finish Rush Revere and the American Revolution first! The winner got a special prize! The Read with Liberty contest motivated the students to submit their photos!
Research Project with Book 4!
One of our amazing teachers in Florida decided to take all of the historical characters in the Rush Revere Series and put them on a board. The students then chose one of the historical figures to research further and create an awesome project about! Some of their work included a poem about William Brewster, a Lego re-enactment of one of the scenes in the book, and plenty of dioramas and drawings! Keep up the great work!
Reading Challenge with Book 5!
Teacher Randy is a retired police officer in Oklahoma who does a great job with his students! One fun thing he does to encourage reading is challenge his class to read all 5 books in the Adventures of Rush Revere Series. If a student completes that and then passes the quizzes on our website, they get a Liberty Plush! How cool is that?! Learning American history is so fun!
Ms. Valerie B. Snowflake, Arizona
Ms. Valerie B. is an amazing teacher who loves to use the Adventures of Rush Revere Series in her school!
Valerie is the grade level leader of five 2nd grade classes that all use the Adventures of Rush Revere as their primary social studies curriculum. They also use the books for read aloud time and for some writing work. Valerie even says that the kids have started acting out Rush Revere on the playground by playing different characters! At parent teacher conferences, she said that numerous parents came up to her and asked how their kids knew more about American history than they did!
Our entire team is excited to see Valerie and her team using the books in their classrooms. Reach out to our team if you would also like to use the Adventures of Rush Revere in your class!

• Run a class election like Cam and the rest of the Rush Revere Crew did in Book 5!
