Learn the basics and debunk the myths about totem poles using the site created by a "transplant" to the Pacific Northwest. Although the write is also selling a book, there is significant information, and the photos are helpful in understanding the iconography of totem poles.

In the Classroom

If you use the site with elementary children, you may want to let them partner-read some of the longer text portions. Use this site as part of a unit on indigenous peoples of the Americas, then have the students create their own totems in an authentic way. Art teachers may want to use this as an inspiration for a totem-like project in clay, wood, or other materials. The connections to oral history are fascinating and can lead to lengthy discussion in a history class about how we "know" what we say happened before written history.

This site features art and cultural information of native Americans, focusing especially on the Eastern Woodlands region. There is information on , Birds & Feathers, Clay & Pottery, Leather & Clothes, Metalwork, Plants & Trees, Porcupine Quills, Stonework & Tools, and Weaving & Cordage. Some of the text passages may be a bit lengthy, but there are also interactive ways for students to get a "hands on" feel, such as with the beadwork interactive game. The sections under Special Features are certain to make the culture come alive for elementary and middle school students.

In the Classroom

Give students a scavenger hunt to learn the basics about the culture you are studying, then allow them to try some of the interactive games, ass based on the content of the site. This would be a great way to build background knowledge while studying American history or literature that deals with Native Americans.

Kids will truly love creating a "scary spud". This activity is basically an interactive dress-up game. Students are given a potato and then are able to give the potato a name, eyes, ears, jewelry, nose, legs and shoes. When the student is finished, they may click print to share their creative masterpiece. FLASH is required for this activity.

tag(s): creativity (119)

In the Classroom

Take the class to the computer lab for this creativity building fun! There is also a link to look at pre-created "scary spuds". Show your class 2 spuds and have them compare the similarities and differences.

What student doesn't love King Tut? This site is connected with the current tour of some of the King Tut artifacts across the United States. See Exhibition Menu> Preview for a beautiful animated gallery of some of the artifacts. Exhibition Menu > videos offers three informative videos. The King Tut menu includes informative background articles. Although King Tut was really just a minor king in the Egyptian history, the stunning beauty of the items discovered in his tomb is hard to resist. This site may change as the exhibit continues to travel.

tag(s): egypt (70)

In the Classroom

Use this site on a projector to introduce Egyptian history or use it in a scavenger hunt activity along with other Tut resources. Gifted enrichment teachers could create an opportunity for students to explore and compare this and other ancient civilizations.

Take a multi-cultural approach to Day of the Dead celebrations by trying some of these hands-on activities and crafts from Mexico.

Find images to use in your classroom multimedia productions, on your web page, or on bulletin boards without violating copyright. Help your students find images to include in their own products. This site is a tool to search the web for photos with "Creative Commons" rights. This means that many are free and ask only that you let the photographer know where you are usng the photo. Some are NOT free. Note: YOU MUST read the rights and permissions information that accompanies each image, since the photographer sets his/her own requirements. The intent of the site is to share photos in an open, easily-searchable environment, but in accordance with these requirements. Help your students learn about copyright by SHOWING them the rights sections and modeling compliance. The search tool is easy to use.

tag(s): copyright (49), images (277), photography (162)

In the Classroom

Use photos from this site in your PowerPoint shows, web page, blog, etc, but be sure to stop and mention where you found them and the thinking/reading you did to be sure you were in compliance with the rights granted. If you suggest the site for student use, model this process on a projector or interactive whiteboard. Then hold students accountable for demonstrating that they have done the same (make it a part of your project rubric). These concepts of copyright are challenging for young students (below about grade 4. You may want to "collect" some photos for their use and save them locally for them to choose from until they are ready to understand the more difficult rights issues.

This creative page allows you to add captions to photographs you have uploaded or found on an online site such as Flickr. A collection of your own photos uploaded to Flickr can be used easily.

tag(s): comics and cartoons (72), images (277), photography (162)

In the Classroom

Locate and upload digital image files or an URL for specific images. Navigate the tools of Captioner by following the simple directions. Monitor the "appropriateness" of images available on Flickr/the web. You might want to specify a tag or collection to work from for some classes. Upload your own set of digital images to Flickr ahead of time. Share also by downloading image to your desktop.

Create a captioned sequence to explain a major concept, such as mitosis or narrative patterns. You could also have students create campaign ads, posters of important people, etc. Have an object explain a concept from its point of view (solar panel tells about itself), have a famous person explain his invention or accomplishment, show what a non-verbal creature or object, such as a cell, is thinking.

Check out the Big Huge Labs educator account. Easily pre-register students to avoid creating logins, view and download their creations, and view the site advertisement free. You will find information about the Educator Account here.

A delightfully creative, collaborative site where people share (and comment on) directions for "how to" make just about anything. Language Arts, Art, or Gifted classes can "explore" the various topics to see how step-by-step directions are written, then have students write their own sequence of instructions. Even add a digital picture. Topics are "filtered" by topic (on the left side of the "explore" page) and also searchable by keyword. Art teachers will appreciate illustrated explanations of techniques from artists all over the world. This is a collaborative site, so you can read comments made by others on the different sets of instructions. Always preview such a site for appropriate content. Some include Acrobat files of patterns.

tag(s): gifted (94)

In the Classroom

Note: for safety reasons, it is best for the teacher to set up the free account and upload the directions, if you are posting student work. no one under 13 is allowed to post on the site. To prevent endless surfing through many how-to's, you can send students directly to specific directions by copy/pasting the address for that exact item into your class handout or onto your teacher web page.
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.

This lesson plan provides a way to encourage cultural awareness and make your ESL students' knowledge of their home culture a classroom asset. The lesson can be done in an all-ESL/ELL class or in a regular class as part of an investigation of cultures, part of a unit on research, or as an art lesson. It can also be adapted for use in a high school level world cultures class.

Take advantage of this free lesson plan during the end of the years content, using it as a means to review World History before the State standard exam. Students can each be assigned or select a country and complete the report, to be presented to their peers. This will allow the students to review and re-enforce the content. World History teachers will appreciate this one!

This site accompanies an exhibition of 4,000 rare books, maps, documents, paintings, prints, and ojects focused on the early Americas from the time of the indigenous people of Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean through the period of European contact, exploration, and settlement. The site showcases two interactive artifacts: A 3-D view of the Tortuguero box, a seventh-century Mayan object, and a seventeenth-century book, The Buccaneers of America. The book features a page-by-page examination of the book along with written and audio translations of its contents. There is a nice picture gallery of other exhibits and a comprehensive bibliography.This site provides some nice visuals for a unit on indiginous peoples of the Americas. The picture gallery has some lovely maps from the Francis Drake expedition, and the information about buccaneers would provide a nice balance to the "Pirates of the Carribean" fantasy depiction of pirates. Some of the interactive features require FLASH. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

The artists speak quite articulately about their creative process and messages they wish to convey. The site is highly interactive and includes links to multiple subject areas. Educators from social studies and language arts helped to correlate to standards across disciplines, create lesson plans, and generate a teaching guide for the series.

World cultures classes will be able to envision ancient times by looking at the beautiful images on this site.

tag(s): archeology (32)

In the Classroom

Include this on your classroom computer Favorites when students are beginning a weaving or printmaking unit so they can find inspiration in the graphical patterns and story-telling elements.

tag(s): archeology (32), painting (66)

In the Classroom

Use a projector to introduce the site, if you must, but allow your students to navigate this one alone or with a partner. The thrill of discovery through the site's design is more than worth any management challenges. Give the students a specific set of questions to answer and things to find, if you are concerned that they may not stay on task. Compare these primitive drawings to those found in other cultures and continents as you discuss common themes in religion and mythology.

Create and collaborate with artists around the web using this online image montage and poetry tool. Each image is an ongoing compilation of other images, arranged in a grid. Add your own images and poetry or simply browse those made by others. Contributors join for free. The images often have surreal appearances and more avant-garde poetry. This site could be a dicussion starter in an art or creative writing class or a study in the diverse uses of web 2.0 collaboration in a computer class.

tag(s): poetry (225)

In the Classroom

Share selected images on a projector as writing prompts or to open a "what is art" discussion. You could also use the images simply as examples of montages before a hands-on project, though this approach misses the clickable depths of each image. Teachers should be aware that this site does not limit image content, so some nudity may occasionally appear in the images. Check you art program's guidleines for such images and/or maintain teacher control over which ones are shown in class, if this will be a problem in your shcool.

The tragic story of the lost princess Anastasia is often of interest to students and can serve as an introduction to the story of the Russian Revolution. The Alexander Palace site certainly illustrates the extreme wealth and extravagance of the Romanov court and how this brought about the Russian Revolution and the rise of communism. This site includes everything: diaries and letters, photographs of the palace pets, and information about the life of Tsar Alexander, the last tsar of Russia. Although the level of detail would be very useful for someone doing research into Russian history, the chief benefit of this site for classroom teachers is its photographs of the palace and its treasures. There are photo tours of the palace and each of its rooms. Of particular interest are zoom-able photos of eleven jeweled and decorated Faberge eggs. The site would also be useful for art teachers in illustrating the craftsmanship and beauty of the Faberge eggs, perhaps before asking students to design their own. This site requires FLASH. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): eggs (6), evolution (102), russia (38), russian (28)

In the Classroom

Send your students on a tour, looking for evidence to support a poitn of view about tsarist Russia. Or try a scavenger hunt where students find answers to specific questions. Even simpler, use a projector to give a "tour" as the opening activity of your unit, then have students revisit the site in individual computers later on in the unit for specific research.

This is the starting page for a collection of five lesson plans to accompany the series "How Art Made the World." The programs and lessons examine the use of art to communicate - whether about religion, politics, even advertising - as societies and cultures have developed. Each lesson includes web links to examples, but surprisingly, the site itself lacks much of the visual impact one might expect to find.

tag(s): images (277), propaganda (12)

In the Classroom

These lessons would be great interdisciplinary "idea banks" for classes in art, world cultures, or government.
