# Features

Ring the Liberty Bell - Just tilt your iPhone to ring the Liberty Bell. But first, learn more about the famous crack. Tap on the blue circles and listen carefully. You may hear these words: Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land Unto All the Inhabitants thereof. What does liberty mean to you?

Print on Benjamin Franklin's press - Drag the letters in your name on to the composing stick and then use your finger to coat them with ink. When you're ready, pull the lever to earn your Printer's badge.

Sign your Declaration of Independence - Personalize your own Declaration and then sign it. The men of the Second Continental Congress pledged to give up what was important to them for freedom. What would you give up for freedom?

Create your own portrait - Look at Benjamin Franklin's portrait to learn how to uncover clues in a painting. Then choose objects for your own portrait that tell people about you.

Create your own seal - Learn about the Great Seal of the United States and then create your own seal. You choose the shield, the characters and even a name.

Great Help

I got this app to use with my Special Needs students who may never be able to visit a National Park. We had so much fun learning, and the certificates were priceless! We had no problems working through the program together, and everyone learned something. Thank you
