YouTube – Liberty’s Kids


Grades 2-8, with parental supervision

YouTube has over 40 episodes of the historically-based cartoon series “Liberty’s Kids” that was aired on PBS Kids back in 2002 and 2003.

What do cartoons have to do with history? Plenty. The primary goal of the “Liberty’s Kids” animated television series was to provide 7-14 year olds with an engaging look at the years 1773-1789 in American history. Although the series ended, each 23-minute episode is on YouTube. When you get to the site, click on any show and the cartoon will begin to play.

Meet famous historical figures through the eyes of two young apprentice reporters named Sarah and James including:

  • Benjamin Franklin
  • Paul Revere
  • Thomas Jefferson
  • John Adams
  • Benedict Arnold
  • Baron von Steuben
  • Patrick Henry
  • and more!

Viewers of Liberty’s Kids will go on adventures in search of the real stories of the American Revolution.

NOTE: All of the videos are prefaced with advertisements, so parents (as always) must supervise Internet use.
