The National Geographic Society designed this interactive site to provide background information for those who are planning a visit to the Canyon. But the impressive online tour of the South Rim is a useful tool for introducing students to the geography of the American south west. Students can learn about the physical features and plants and animals indigenous to the region. Just for fun, the site also includes Kids' Canyon, a collection of activities, print-and-go coloring pages, screensavers, and wallpapers. Be sure to investigate the K-12 lesson plans, aligned to National Geography Standards.

tag(s): geology (79)

In the Classroom

Beyond lesson plans, use the virtual map over the interactive whiteboard to show students the details of the canyon. Allow students to navigate through the site individually, picking which direction they want to explore first. Be sure to let the students work the interactive whiteboard - participation in technology often heightens interest. This would be a great way to introduce the material being studied.

Discover the culture of ancient China with this outstanding, interactive site that explores its artisans, geography, tombs, writings, and more. Each section of the site provides historical information, a story, an in-depth exploration, and a challenge. The challenge activities promote higher level thinking and are ideal for independent practice and review.

tag(s): china (63), chinese (50)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on Ancient China. There is a lot of content on the site, so it would be beneficial to create a graphic organizer for students to help organize their notes. (If looking for an easy find, we recommend using Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).) Teachers can also use the challenges to assess student participation, not to mention that kids will enjoy the brief respite from note-taking! A very useful resource for the world history classroom.

This rather specialized resource takes a look at six former political leaders who created entire political regimes: Mussolini, Ceausescu, Hitler, Hirohito, Stalin, and Tito, and examines their respective regime. Concise text, maps, photographs, and sound bytes, contribute to a multimedia experience that provides a clear and compelling introduction to these six political systems. A glossary, series of timelines, and links to related sites make this a very user-friendly site for student research.

tag(s): hitler (10)

In the Classroom

What's helpful about this site is the list of commonly used vocabulary and terms that can help ESL students or lower-level readers prepare for the unit. Browse the site before beginning a unit and collect a list that would be helpful to such students. Having the lists with them can help them prepare and participate in the classroom setting with more understanding.

The art and artifacts produced by travelers along this storied trade route are examined in this beautifully designed site. Five distinct themes focus on the lives and experiences of these ancient people: the invention of printing; languages and scripts; Buddhas and bodhisattvas; games; and astronomy. The student-friendly text and prolific images of manuscripts, artwork, maps, and charts make this a very approachable resource for in-class research.

tag(s): marco polo (5), religions (68)

In the Classroom

Use the learning portion of this site as a learning center or station during a unit on the Silk Road. There is a LOT of content here, so this would probably work best if you selected the sections students can explore to tailor it to your classroom content. To help students review the content, have them recreate a map using a tool such as Click2Map, reviewed here. Students can detail the geography of the silk road, as well as the content of the section they studied.

The issue of worldwide overpopulation is addressed in this site that explores the problem as well as potential solutions. Population facts and figures are presented along with descriptions of crises concerning natural resources, endangered species, the environment, and urbanization. This is a timely and thought-provoking resource that can generate some purposeful class discussion.

tag(s): population (63)

In the Classroom

This is a great site for a Cultural Geography class studying population and TFR. Use the fact sheets on this site about several developing nations to start a class discussion on population growth, and factors that contribute to a growing or decreasing population. This could lead into projects where students track population and label factors that may be affecting the numbers.

This Website presents the stories behind the farms, homes, people, and culture of Midwestern America. The American Dream is traced through historical photographs documenting the booming family farms that once dotted the landscape. Students can take a virtual tour of a prairie farmhouse, and explore the "literary connection" by following links to classic works inspired by rural America. This would be an excellent addition to a unit on westward expansion or twentieth century American literature.

tag(s): agriculture (58)

In the Classroom

Use the "virtual farmhouse" as a learning center or station during a unit on Westward expansion or while establishing background for the Dustbowl. If using to provide context for the Great Depression, have students compare the prairie of the site to what the prairie turned into during the great drought of the 30's. Use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram (reviewed here). Using the tool, students can create their own in groups or do it as a class on the interactive whiteboard.

This is a great resource for a government or World History class.

Climb aboard your own longship and take an amazing journey across the stormy Atlantic! The Viking Voyage, a narrated multi-media journey, is an amazing feature in this impressive online exhibition that documents the arrival of the Norsemen in the New World more than 1000 years ago.

This is a site to be explored in the computer lab with stereo headphones.

Based on the information here and from class, have students put together a multimedia presentation that can be used to help their peers review the information.Have cooperative learning groups create podcasts demonstrating their understanding of one of the concepts. Use a site such as PodOmatic (reviewed here). These review casts can be presented in class OR posted on the class website to allow students to review both in and out of the classrom!

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.

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.
