Fesser’s new website about Get to Know Bernardo de Gálvez is interactive, educative, and really fun. Under the headline “Disembarking at the Novel,” students and children can learn about the concept of chronological order by playing with illustrations found in the book or test their knowledge with trivia questions.

The website also features “Gálvez and His Era,” where students and children can help the commander find the materials needed for battle in a delightful puzzle. They can also learn about codes of arms, the soldier’s life in Spain and his fleet, how goods were transported, and the parts of a ship.
Another informative section, “Destination: United States,” teaches participants about explorations that shaped U.S. history, the country’s notable rivers, and other nations that helped form the country. Other topics include the government and its functions, as well as significant and historical figures.
“Spain in the U.S.,” another engaging section of the site, discusses Spanish in America, common Spanish expressions, states named by the Spanish, Spanish influence in the Wild West, and other subjects.
However, the fan favorite of Fesser’s site is the incorporated game segment! On the bottom left corner of the homepage, you can find a coloring sketch, word search, puzzle, riddles, a maze game, and even an instructional video that teaches sign language!
