While designed for art history, this time line will also appeal to anyone interested in concise summaries of the movements of prehistoric civilizations and peoples throughout the world. As it moved into ancient and modern history, the site offers nicely written summaries of the relationships between art, culture, and the political and social developments in each culture. World cultures faculties will love this one.

tag(s): art history (69), time (144)

In the Classroom

Select the timeline that reflects the unit being studied in class, opening it on the interactive whiteboard or projector. The write ups provide a substantial amount of information, and the images would be really useful for students who are visual learners. Use the time-lines to review and summarize major points of a unit to ensure students are able to grasp the essential points.

This site is tough to categorize, but it probably fits best as a "discussion starter" for a creative writing class or an example of digital design. The artist has used the many facets of the concept of "lost" as a framework for a flash-enhanced presentation. The site's endpoints are other works by the same artist. This one took some creativity to create, and it will take more creativity to use it effectively.

This site offers a generous helping of images of Mary Cassatt's late 19th century impressionist work. Cassatt was one of very few Americans to paint in the impressionist style, making her even more interesting to American students. Large format images make this site especially useful as a teaching tool.

Photography can be both an art form and a form of scientific inquiry. Photos of People and Cultures can promote human understanding better than any written words. This site from National Geographic can serve both ends if used properly. Art teachers "focus" on tips and techniques and photography advice areas, while science/social studies teachers will easily locate a wide range of plant, animal, culture, and geography images. As always, the photos themselves are exquisite.

tag(s): animals (276), photography (160)

In the Classroom

Share a photo of the day as an activator at the start of a lesson on your projector or interactive whiteboard. Allow a student of the day to select his/her photo of the day as a class inspiration. Share a photo as a visual writing prompt. Use tools on your IWB to discover and reveal design elements in the photos in art class. Use selected collections on laptops with student partners (galleries) to provide a visual experience of a location or culture you are studying, asking students to observe for visual evidence of some of the major concepts you have discussed in class.

Art and Social Studies teachers will find this collection of contemporary stamp artwork interesting both for its style and for the range of themes that have been incorporated into stamps. The oversize artwork helps illustrate the details in these images.

tag(s): africa (180), african american (113)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a lesson on the evolution of mail services in the US, and how services such as the pony express was affected by Westward expansion. Allow students to explore the site on classroom computers, using the stamp template as a formative assessment of their understanding. To make the stamp activity more content-based, have students design their stamps to reflect what they learned rather than allowing them to draw anything they can think of. History teachers will like this one!

Of interest to teachers of social studies, American history, or art, this site from UC Berkeley samples over 400 years of artistic portrayals of Native Americans in a variety of settings. The site is notable both for the quality of the images but also for the contexts in which they are presented. Suitable for a wide age range, depending on the amount of guidance the classroom teacher provides.

tag(s): india (36), painting (66)

In the Classroom

Use this site on a projector or interactive whiteboard to discuss and informally assess prior knowledge as you start your study of Native American Culture. This site could be used to discuss Native American culture both pre-colonialism and during Westward Expansion. Have students research the site in order to better understand the way Indians have been depicted in modern culture rather than the reality. To show what they have learned from this site, challenge students to create an online graphic to share using Tabblo reviewed here.

OK, this one's mostly for fun, and we're showing our age. Still, the online version of the famous drawing toy performs much as the original did. Try this one on your students as an example of what high tech was thirty years ago. Just don't try to clear your screen by turning it upside down and shaking it! Operate the game using the arrow keys on your keyboard.

tag(s): drawing (78)

In the Classroom

Have young ones practice left and right by working with a partner at classroom computers, with one partner directing "left" or "right, "up" or "down" while the other operates the keys. Together they can make a drawing! Older students will be amused by the simplicity. See what they can create with just one continuous line.
