Peter the Czar for kids

At my house, we'll be singing our history fact to the tune of "This Land is Your Land":

In seventeen-twelve
Peter the Great, the
Czar of Russia
built his capital ci-ty
of Sa-int Petersburg
on the Baltic Sea in
an effort to obtain
a warm-water port
(repeat last line of melody:) giving Russia
a "Window to the West"!

Because my computer is malfunctioning this week I'm not able to access YouTube, but it seems there are a number of videos on Peter the Great; following the first YouTube video link will suggest a number of additional videos on the side panel.

The Story of the World Activity Book has a number of ideas for this week's history starting on page 104. Starting on page 52 of the Student Pages, there's a coloring page and other craft pages.
