A new state website, http://ilovehistory.utah.gov/index.html, offers resources for kids, teachers and anyone else interested in Utah history. The site has quizzes, like the Ancestral Puebloan Quiz, and games, like the Paleoindian Memory Game and a Counties Map Game. (The Counties Map Game told me I did a "good job" when I finished, but I suspect I actually did quite poorly.) Personally, I liked the "Cool Old Photos," mainly the ones of the old Sugar House Penitentiary and South Temple.
