Mission US is in its infancy stage, but the concept is a role playing video game that will assist students in the learning of the History of the United States. Students will take on the role of Nat Wheeler. Students can currently play lesson/level 1 (For Crown or Colony) which is the American Revolution. You can view a demo right now that sets the story line. The full site will go live later in the month of September. Students can register for an account and play For Crown or Colony. For teachers, Mission US have classroom guides that will assist with implementation. You can view a video showcasing its use in the classroom.
I normally don't like to post resources for a specific subject, but I found this to be a great tool.
