American history in ten minutes a day?

I am currently a sixth grade teacher, and in my district that means I teach world history. However, my students have very little understanding of American history. I was thinking next year I'd like to try to spend about ten minutes a day teaching American history.

I'm not sure how to go about this however, if it's even possible. Obviously, it wouldn't be in much depth, and there would be little time for activities related to it. But I was thinking I could maybe read short sections from an interesting history book (like A History of US) instead of a read aloud. Or supplement with historical fiction? Or maybe show video clips from a good series. Anyone have any ideas? Or know any good documentaries that would work for this?

Thanks in advance!
