DIGITAL VAULTS provides modern-day tools to find old information, which makes researching history and American studies easy and visual -- a teen must in this digital age. Most students will likely go to this site specifically for the purposes of finding information or images for a school assignment. But if your tween or teen can withstand wading through the somewhat overwhelming number of visuals on the site, he or she might enjoy trying the Pathways Challenge matching game, making a movie or a poster, or finding out more about an image that intrigues them -- just for fun.

Online interaction: Users who are registered on the site can create their own version of the Pathways Challenge for other players to try and then rate in comparison to others.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
