REVIEW
Take your children on a virtual field trip to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). They can learn about the history of the FBI from its inception in 1908 to the present; find out what the FBI does including information about fingerprints, polygraphs and DNA, complete a crossword puzzle to check for understanding; and explore jobs and support positions at the FBI. The safety section offers tips for safety on the Internet, talking to strangers and guns. There is also information about the working dogs at the FBI and the kinds of work they do. Last but not least, the game section offers interactive games for children to play while they learn more about the operation of the FBI.
