This well-organized site presents an authentic and factual view of the Holocaust in a format appropriate for middle and high school students. Text, historical photographs, maps, images of artifacts, and audio clips provide a riveting experience for visitors. This resource is organized by themes which include Nazi Rule, Jews in Germany, the "Final Solution," Nazi Camps, and Rescue and Resistance. Each theme is supported by in-depth information, a helpful glossary and timeline, and a list of key dates and events.

tag(s): holocaust (41), jews (26), nazis (10), world war 2 (142)

In the Classroom

Use the images on this site to design a picture walk in your classroom about the holocaust. Select 10-15 of the more powerful images, choosing a variety of subjects. Assign students to begin at specific numbers, before allowing the class to rotate around the classroom every 30-45 seconds. At each image, students should quickly write down what they observe, infer and predict about each image. At the end of the picture walk, have a class discussion based on the notes students took during the walk. This would be a very interesting way to introduce the topic in a non-lecture format. For help creating the graphic organizers, we recommend using Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).

Primary source material including photographs and personal interviews form the basis for this revealing look at the Holocaust. Visitors can explore three separate paths: a history section that provides a brief overview of the Holocaust and the experiences of the victims; a liberators section that offers 10 transcriptions of interviews with those involved in the liberation of concentration camps; and a camps section that profiles four of the most notorious concentration camps. The images and recollections are troubling, so use carefully in the classroom. Developed by the Georgia Institute of Technology Library and Information Center.

tag(s): holocaust (41), jews (26), nazis (10), world war 2 (142)

In the Classroom

Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Then have students explore this site independently or in small groups. The information is very dark and graphic, but if your students are mature enough it provides amazing insight into the camps and havoc they wreaked. Have students explore the site and challenge them to create an online graphic to share using Tabblo reviewed here.

Take a virtual field trip to one of the most famous and intriguing historic structures in the world. The Tower of London's crucial role in English history is provided along with an interactive map of the entire complex that permits independent investigation of every nook and cranny. Students can meet the prisoners who met their fate within the tower and those who succeeded in escaping. Read some spine-tingling ghost stories and discover the legend behind those ever-present ravens. Consider spicing up a study of the history of Great Britain with this entertaining and educational site.

tag(s): britain (33), england (55)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a guide for a group activity researching the Tower of London. Seperate students in groups, randomly assigning each one of the many subject headings within the site. Have the groups read and interpret the contents of their section, to be presented to the class as a whole. Have students narrate and add text to an image using UtellStory, reviewed here. 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. Something like this will take up a whole class period, so only use it if you have the flexibility schedule-wise.

Click on "Search the Collection" to take a tour of the gallery rooms, and browse through portraits of famous British men and women from the Middle Ages to the late 20th century. Project this Web site in the classroom to illustrate authors, political figures and personalities from British history and literature. Samuel Johnson, Henry VIII, Queen Victoria, The Bront? Sisters, Neville Chamberlain and Winston Churchill are among the thousands of Britons represented.

Take advantage of the free images on this site! Search the site for images or portraits of individuals being studies to supplement a lecture. This site would be particularly useful in studying Early American history - giving students a face to connect with the names they have heard about so much.

Make the Bard more approachable for younger students with this clever, interactive resource. Kids of all ages can enjoy delving into the life of Queen Elizabeth and the works of William Shakespeare. Explore full texts of plays in PDF format, word games and puzzles, historical lessons (some are interactive), and fun facts about Shakespeare and his theater. A word of caution: many of the activities on this site require prior knowledge of Shakespearean plays and characters. Choose wisely based on the level and language skills of your students, and the depth of your study of Shakespeare. Use to introduce the Elizabethan era, review important concepts, or extend a literature unit with a bit of history. Created by the Folger Shakespeare Library. Requires Adobe Acrobat.

tag(s): elizabethan (15), england (55), plays (34), shakespeare (104)

In the Classroom

Share some Shakespearean insults and vocabulary by way of introduction to students on a projector or interactive whiteboard before allowing students to use it individually or with a partner. Access the section entitled "games, coloring and puzzles," and save it as a favorite on classroom computers for use as a learning center or station. Have students complete some of the puzzles or crosswords as a way to review a unit on the Playwright or courtship, courtly love and of course - Queen Elizabeth. Challenge students explore the site and create a quick presentation of what they learned. Students can create brief online posters using a tool such as Padlet, reviewed here.

Take an interactive, insider's tour of 15th century Florence, and explore the Renaissance through several different themes: art, politics, architecture and science, and religion. Meet the "godfathers" of the Renaissance who will give you tips on how to be a Medici mobster. Discover which Renaissance figure you most resemble. The companion art gallery includes gorgeous images of Renaissance art. If projecting images in the classroom, remember that clothing is a bit scarce in the Sistine Chapel, so consider the maturity level of your students.

tag(s): italy (15), renaissance (31)

In the Classroom

Use the interactive timeline in your classroom on your interactive whiteboard or projector to give students more context about the Renaissance. The site provides some valuable information about the Medici family, who were an important influence on the Renaissance.

Those interested in Sir Winston Churchill will find this site's offerings more than ample. An online biography and chronology will probably be most helpful, but there are also links to various collections of Churchill's papers, and also to several online features designed for use in British schools. Americans will likely find these materials most relevant to a unit on World War II.

tag(s): britain (33), churchill (6), england (55), world war 2 (142)

What a cool way to bring some personality to the characters that often seem too stoic to be human. Use the primary sources on this site during an introductory activity about the characters predominantly studied in WWII. Show students some of the materials over the interactive whiteboard or projector during a lecture on Churchill, Stalin and Truman.

While designed to keep Britons informed about current efforts to preserve Stonehenge, this site offers a detailed history of the mysterious monument begun in about 3000 BC. American audiences will likely want to know more about the people who did the building and the purpose of this huge project. Archaeologists still puzzle over how the construction was accomplished.

Teachers may want to try this one as an adjunct to an astronomy unit, or as part of a study of ancient civilizations.

One of the twentieth century's real giants, Churchill's accomplishments go well beyond the content on this companion site to the PBS series of the same name. While most famous as a World War II leader, his influence on the British government stretched from the 1920s well into the 1950s. This site is a great introduction, but serious secondary students should be prepared to delve more deeply.

tag(s): churchill (6), middle east (37), world war 2 (142)

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on WWII. Because there is a lot of information on this site, it would probably work best if students had a graphic organizer to guide them through. For help creating graphic organizers, we recommend using Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).

American History teachers should turn their visual learners loose on this one. Based largely on collections of color still photos taken during World War II, the site - a companion to the PBS show of the same name - examines the progress of the war in Europe, in the Pacific, and on the home front. The narrative is secondary to the photos and provides only a synopsis of some events, but visually, this is powerful stuff.

tag(s): world war 2 (142)

In the Classroom

Save this site on classroom computers and use it as a learning center or station. Some of the content does have sound, so make sure to include headphones for student use. This site does have a lot of information, and would perfectly be utilized during a unit on WWII or on the evolution of aircrafts in general. Tech-geeks will love this one!

This site documents the US Holocaust Museum's recent exhibit about Anne Frank's unpublished writings. The site includes an introduction, interviews, excerpts from a number of unpublished works, and a series of links for additional information. This one could be an interesting bridge between a writing assignment and the study of World War II.

In the Classroom

Use the virtual exhibit as a learning center or station during a unit on WWII in a history class or during a study of her book in an English class. This would be a great way to introduce Anne Frank, the exhibit serving to put all students at the same level of understanding of her life. If in need of some sort of assessment to see what students have learned from the site, challenge students to create an online graphic to share using Tabblo reviewed here.

This site, created by High School Students in San Francisco, presents personal oral Holocaust accounts in written and audio formats. The site provides a unique perspective on the manner in which the Holocaust affected so many lives, by providing the detailed accounts of six survivors. Due to the nature of the subject matter, teachers may want to limit access of this site to older students.

tag(s): holocaust (41), jews (26), world war 2 (142)

Beyond the obvious testimonials this provides to the content, this site can also be used as the perfect example of how students can complete a similar project. During a modern history unit, select a topic that students have the potential to interview their own family members on. Instead of the typical tape recording, try a new technology similar to one used on the website. Use a site such as PodOmatic (reviewed here).

There is also a good introduction in the "For Schools" section on how to structure a legal and civic history lessons using the site. The teacher's page is geared towards British Curriculum standards, but it is still helpful in describing the site's application to British History.

tag(s): britain (33), courts (14), england (55), great britain (17)

In the Classroom

Beyond the free lesson plans, use this site to obtain plenty of primary resources from early to modern England. During a unit on the American Revolution, use this site as a way to address the treason of Benedict Arnold. Open the site on the interactive whiteboard or projector and search for crimes related to treason or espionage. Go through the cases with students, highlighting sentencing and judicial opinions related to the offense. Once you have gone through a few cases, use the results you found to discuss what British attitudes may have been towards their own "turncoat" and how this may have impacted Benedict Arnold's future working for the British Empire. This would also be a great activity to discuss how these same attitudes in combination with Arnold's actions impacted American legislation towards treason. This could be used in either a civics or American History course.

Those studying castles, knights, and the feudal system will find a surprisingly rich collection of information and lifestyle trivia at this site.

Elementary students will need lots of help with this one.

Use the ballads on this site as a means to combine history and creative writing. Show students several of the ballad examples over the interactive whiteboard, allowing volunteers to read aloud some of the pieces. Based on the styles and lyrics seen, have students write their own ballads summarizing some point of Medieval culture or history. For a fun break, have students read aloud their ballads to the class - it's always interesting to see how creative people can get!

While some of the information on this site is targeted towards travelers, there is useful information here that can be used to supplement a lecture on the origins of flight and the Wright Brothers. Open the section about the Wright Brothers on the interactive whiteboard or projector, and use the timeline provided as a guide for students to follow. This would also be a great jumping off point for students working on research projects or papers about the Wright Brothers - save this site on your class wiki or webpage to allow students to access it both in and out of the classroom. This would be useful in a US history or Physics classroom following the evolution of flight.

This site from the Minneapolis Institute of the Arts is almost as good as a field trip. Stuffed with images, video clips, and text, it offers a presentation on Modernism that runs from the British arts and crafts movement in the 1880s through to American Art Deco of the 1940s. There are images, text, and video narration for each segment, providing a nice evolutionary tour. Use the pieces together or individually as supplemental material for art history, or as an adjunct to an American or European history class.

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 modernism in the past two centuries. Use the site's images and virtual exhibits to showcase the movement being talked about to compliment your class lectures. Another useful item is that some of the exhibits have a quick video clip that can help introduce the idea to your class in a way that foreshadows the rest of your lecture. Make sure your technology allows for the videos to be seen and not just heard!
