This privately published site offers an interesting introduction to the Ancient Egyptians. The text portions are far better than the visuals, but there are a number of features that illustrate and describe the various features of the various Egyptian tombs and pyramids. The content should readily adapt to uses from elementary through high school.

tag(s): egypt (70), pyramids (29)

In the Classroom

Use the kids site as a review for students towards the end of a unit on Ancient Egypt. Within the section are puzzles that could easily be printed OR completed on classroom computers if you have enough. Share this site on a projector or interactive whiteboard before allowing students to use it individually or with a partner.
 This resource requires Adobe Flash.

A lesson examining the differences between classical Greek building styles and those of contemporary architects. This lesson plan was one of the winners in a lesson plan contest sponsored by TeachersFirst. TeachersFirst editors have added technology options where appropriate.

tag(s): architecture (84), greek (41), greeks (31)

In the Classroom

The possibilities for this lesson expand exponentially with the use of web-based resources for images, research, and creation of student projects. Many of the activities would also be well-suited for interactive whiteboard.

This site from Washington State University provides college-level depth on the evolution, flowering, and decline of the Roman empire. The treatment includes political, social, and military history in sufficient detail that teachers should be able to use this site as a resource for planning an entire unit on Roman history, even at the high school level. Serious students will find a rich resource of factual information.

tag(s): romans (35), rome (27)

In the Classroom

Include this link on your class website (or wiki) for students to practice both in and out of the classroom. The information is more encyclopedia-like, but can help fill in the holes that students may have about the textbook or lectures. Students can use the site as a reference or for review before assessments.

There's lots of information here, most of it in the form of text. There are also maps, images, and the like. The site is particularly noteworthy for the depth of its content, which makes it a great starting point for on-line research.

tag(s): romans (35), rome (27)

In the Classroom

Although there may not be any current updates on this site, there is a lot of background information that could help students who need catching up do so without being singled out. Use the site as a learning center or station, clearly defining which part students should focus on. Based on what they read, have students create timelines of topics such as political rulers, battles, colonization efforts, factors leading to the fall of Rome, etc. Have students use a tool such as Timeglider, reviewed here. This would be great for a World History course.

This site from the BBC takes an understandably Anglo-centric approach to presenting the exploits of the Romans, especially in Britian. The overview of the Roman empire is also worth a visit. The graphics and presentation are approachable without diluting the content, and the site includes materials for teachers and parents as well.

tag(s): britain (33), romans (35)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on the Ancient Roman empire. There are pre-prepared worksheets on the site that can not only be used to guide students, but once completed can be used as an informal assessment. This is an excellent resource for a world history classroom.

Developed at Tufts University. This is a rich resource for the study of ancient Greece and its archaeological sites. Students can select regions or specific sites and investigate the archeological evidence found at those sites. Beautifully photographed and mapped, with a strong selection of related links.

tag(s): archeology (32), greece (26), greek (41), greeks (31), romans (35)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of the free images and background information offered on this site. Use the images and detailed information to supplement textbook information, in addition to lectures. Each image has a graphic explanation of construction, use and symbolism of each monument - something that might sound more interesting to students than information commonly found in textbooks.

National Geographic sites are fantastic. This particular one recreates an expedition in the Andes. Beautiful pictures, maps, and journals, as well as a discussion of prehistory and anthropology.

tag(s): anthropology (11), south america (38)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on Mesoamerican Civilizations. Have students complete the site individually or in cooperative learning groups. Because there is a lot of reading involved, this activity would probably work best if lower-level reading students were paired with more advanced readers.

tag(s): egypt (70)

In the Classroom

Use the images in the exhibit for a visual discovery activity. Select 3-4 images, placing them on a slide-show presentation. Have students take notes on each of the images, noting what they observe, infer and predict about each one. After the presentation, have a class discussion based around student notes. This would be great review activity before an assessment, allowing students to apply the knowledge just learned. This would be a great resource for a world history classroom.

This site from the British Museum offers a literate, visually attractive, yet very approachable on-line study resource on Egyptian culture, customs, and history. The site has numerous topics and layers, with most content delivered through stories. There are also instructional games and quizzes. Five stars for this one! The games require SHOCKWAVE. The site includes the link to get it, or you can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): egypt (70)

In the Classroom

The "staff room" feature is especially nice for teachers, offering teacher instructions directly from each student page, or in sequence if you prefer.

This British site about Egyptian tombs, burial practices, and culture offers lots of photos coupled with personalized commentary about the ways in which the ancient Egyptians buried their dead and the state of their tombs today. The design is a little dated, but the information's thousands of years old anyway, and the presentation doesn't suffer for it. Good site for basic student research.

tag(s): egypt (70), pyramids (29)

In the Classroom

Have students explore this site in cooperative learning groups, researching a specific aspect of Ancient Egyptians and their burial processes. Have cooperative learning groups create online books using a tool such as Bookemon, reviewed here. The books can help students review and reenforce information through presentation. World History teachers will find this one very useful.

Don't let the cartoon style fool you! This site is a very complete resource for students to study'? Greek mythology, stories, characters, and more. It presents the content is small, visually appealing doses, and includes links to lesson plans and other related information. Well worth a look if you want a site that students can use on their own.

tag(s): greek (41)

In the Classroom

Use the stories on this site as a learning center or station during a unit on Ancient Greece OR a unit on myths/fables, depending on whether it is for a Language Arts or History classroom. Have students recreate the stories in an online book with a tool like Bookemon, reviewed here.

Put a link to the activities on your class website and let students use as a center. Use the quizzes as a pretest to see what students already know. When you have finished studying the unit have students retake the quiz to see how much they learned. Print out the provided activities and use for homework or to provide extension activities for more advanced students.
