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 (35), 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.

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 (39)

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.

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 (67)

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 (67), 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.

Introduce this site on an interactive whiteboard or projector and try the activities as a whole class. Or have small groups rotate to a whiteboard and manipulate the activities together. 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.
