Published by:  DK Multimedia

The students will be  hunting a fugitive while traveling in time.  They will visit Indian Tribes as well as other historical places.  From the reviews that I read on this software the students may grow tired of this easily, because  there are only one scene for each time period.   This software is discontinued, so it maybe hard to find.  This software may not contain something specifically about  the Hopi Indians.

Published by:  Knowledge Adventure
This software has all areas of 4th grade covered.  It has Social Studies, Science, Math, Language and many more subjects.  This will be a good program for every subject.  I think it will work with my topic because it has History/Social Studies areas.  The only problem that I could see would be that it may not contain information about the Hopi Indians.
