Heeey, Learn About The USA
Weeee the people, in order to form a more perfect union......
God, this so takes me back to my childhood.
And yes, dates me a bit.
But there's no denying some of my earliest memories learning about the constitution, declaration of independence and all the related US history were thanks to the Schoolhouse Rock spots on Saturday morning cartoons on ABC-TV.
By ingeniously combining music and cartoons, they taught a generation of kids about American history, grammar, science, economics, mathematics, and politics.
And i'd be remiss without including another historical favorite, I'm Just a Bill.
Too bad the process of a bill becoming a law is more complex than this scenario but still.....it's very informative.
always loved how it ends "He signed ya Bill! Now you're a laaaawww!"
