The Michigan Maritime Museum: Grades 3-8 This site contains some valuable lessons and support materials on the sloop, “Friends good will,” later captured by the British and renamed “Little Belt.” It was taken by Perry at the Battle of Lake Erie and is the ‘sloop’ mentioned in his famous dispatch to General William Henry Harrison
Parks Canada: Teacher Resource Center: All Levels There are many good materials usable by teachers in the United States. A key word search for "War of 1812" will identify various learning resources relating to the war. Materials are grouped by national historic site. Please note that if you seek site specific education programming information, you will have to go to the individual War of 1812 related National Historic Site websites on the Parks Canada main public website. For example, Fort George and Fort Malden have great information and some pre-visit activities under the "Learning Experiences" section of their specific websites.
U.S.S. Constitution (Old Ironsides) Educator Resources: All Levels A K-12 interdisciplinary curriculum on USS Constitution is available and although not focused on War of 1812, it does cover Constitution’s role in the War. In addition, there is an interactive online experience and game called “A Sailor’s Life for Me!” that illustrates the Ship in 1812 and gives the Ship new life, peopling it with researched members of the crew and filling it with authentically depicted objects and artifacts. A War of 1812 Curriculum is currently being developed to accompany the website.
