Special Announcement: Liberty's Kids
Episodes air weekday mornings at 7am/6c!
Liberty's Kids is an animated series which offers a fresh and unique
perspective on the era of the American Revolution. Guided through the
colonies by a young British girl named Sarah, her politically engaged
friend James, a former slave named Moses, and a French boy named
Henri, viewers learn about this extraordinary era through the eyes of
these eager correspondents. Episodes in the popular cartoon series
span the years between 1773 and 1789, providing viewers with an
exciting way to travel through the Revolutionary era. Each half-hour
episode of Liberty's Kids focuses on an important chapter in the story
of the unfolding conflict between Britain and the newly-formed United
States, introducing the key events, people, and ideas that drove the
transformations of the Revolutionary years.
A lively duo of budding journalists, Sarah and James develop their own
opinions as they hear the important debates and see critical events
transpire on their journey through the streets of the revolutionary
colonies. Along the way, they learn about how and why issues with the
British crown reached a breaking point, and see how the promises of
American democracy were born. From the Boston Tea Party through the
Continental Congress and beyond, this series provides teachers and
students with an engaging window into the critical turning points of
these years. Through the commentary of Sarah, James and a host of
everyday characters and well-known leaders such as John Adams, Patrick
Henry, and Phillis Wheatley, viewers gain new insights into the chaos
and possibility in the air as the Revolution unfolded and the new
nation took shape.
Liberty's Kids would be useful building content background for social
studies, U.S. history, politics, and civics courses. Though it is
geared toward elementary and middle school viewers, high school
students and educators will also enjoy this series. Liberty's Kids
covers many of the key events and people of the American Revolutionary
era. Check your local TV listings for specific episode information.
