From the British Monarchy site. (Who would know better?)

tag(s): britain (35), england (57)

In the Classroom

An excellent addition to any unit on Early - Modern British history! Assign students monarchs for your appropriate time period, and have them research the site to find out more about their specific person. Have each student create a quick biography of their monarch in an attempt to show how important their roles were to English Society. Have students create a multimedia presentation using UtellStory, reviewed here. This site allows users to narrate a picture. Challenge students to find a photo (legally permitted to be reproduced), and then narrate the photo as if it is a news report. To find Creative Commons images for student projects (with credit, of course), try PhotoPin, reviewed here.

There's more here than meets the eye. This site offers a time-line showing the evolution of simple tools and technologies during the middle ages. Those who are persistent will also find more detailed drawings and explanations of the various implements. This is a great site to show how major changes can arise from simple inventions.

tag(s): feudalism (3), inventors and inventions (97), medieval (27)

In the Classroom

Use this site to find time-lines to supplement your classroom discussions and lectures throughout your curriculum. Share the time-lines on the interactive whiteboard or projector during instruction to aid student understanding of the succession of events.

This privately published site documents and illustrates the history of the trebuchet, a marvel of medieval physics that could hurl heavy things great distances. Students can learn how to build their own miniature version, and they can study why the trebuchet worked so efficiently. This one's both fun and instructional.

tag(s): medieval (27)

In the Classroom

Share this site on the interactive whiteboard or projector to introduce a unit or lesson on the physics of throwing machines. Use this site to provide a historic example of their many uses. Teachers can focus simply on the history of mechanics of the machinery OR can have students attempt to create their own based on the directions and resources provided. This would be a great resource for either a History or Physics classroom.

Large, colorful site presenting extensive information about Paris - in English and French versions.

tag(s): france (40), french (88)

In the Classroom

In a personal economy lesson, use this site to help students "plan a trip" to Paris. Assign students to cooperative learning groups, with each group receiving a hypothetical amount of money, and directions to find lodging, food, transportation while surveying the sites of Paris. This is a great way to teach students how to budget with real world prices and figures. For an emphasis on French history, require students to participate in certain tourist activities in their hypothetical situation - simultaneously creating challenges to their budgets. A great way to add some relevance to an economics lesson.

Kids level Dictionary that translate English words into; French, Spanish, German & Portuguese. Limited word list. Also has an Information section from the word list that is more like a mini Encyclopedia. The picture dictionary is a valuable tool for ESL/ELL students trying to communicate in a regular classroom.

tag(s): vocabulary (323)

In the Classroom

Not only is this a great resource for ESOL teachers, but some of the terms that are hyperlinked even have attached worksheets and graphic organizers attached to help other teachers incorporate the "term" into their teaching. One for example that has extra Resources is the entry on Barack Obama - which could be useful for civics or history teachers teaching students about our current political environment.

C'est Magnifique! Find out all about the most famous landmark in Paris. There's lots of information on the tower itself, a virtual tour, and a panoramic view from the top. This is certainly a nice way to introduce French geography and culture. The site incluea a section for kids and a quiz. Note: to read in French, click the French flag. Some of the interactive tour portions require a special Active X plug-in. When prompted, you will need to install these.

tag(s): france (40), french (88)

In the Classroom

This is definitely a site to share on a projector or to allow students to explore on laptops or in a lab. Give them some questions to answer and send them "touring."

Visit the New Orleans-based museum all about World War II via the web site and its various interactive components.

Find lesson plans at the left under "Teachers." Click WWII History button at the right to find many pages of information and a timeline. Don't miss many choices under Student Projects.
