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.

Although this site is still very much a work in progress, it contains some riveting resources that would be valuable for use in a 20th century American History class. The "Teachers' Web" is not yet up and running, but the oral history interviews, available as audio files, are wonderfully revealing primary sources. If you are interesting in presenting the Vietnam War from a very personal, human perspective, consider using this on-line archive. The site also provides a collection of historical photographs and tips for conducting Oral History interviews - an unforgettable learning experience for your students!

Explore 16th to 19th century-Japan with this interactive and engaging site. Visitors can enter the city of Edo (the site of present day Tokyo), meet the artisans who lived and worked there, and participate in some cultural activities. Students can create a virtual woodblock print and interact with a variety of distinctive musical instruments. A virtual trip down the busy Tokaido highway brings students in contact with fellow travelers as well as the many merchants and tradesmen whose shops and inns lined the roadside. The interactive timeline feature allows students to view Japanese history against the backdrop of world events. Three helpful classroom guides, aligned to national standards, can be downloaded.

tag(s): japan (61), japanese (42)

In the Classroom

Now here is a great site to accompany a World History classroom studying early modern Japan. This site would make a great learning center or station - if so we recommend creating a follow-along for students using a program such as Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here). There are also lesson plans connected to National Standards that Social Studies teachers should take advantage of!

Take your students on a virtual adventure that will help them to understand the personal lives and experiences of 21st century immigrants to America. Students can meet the various families profiled on the site, learn about their cultural traditions, and take a quiz on the myths and realities of immigration. The site features interactive maps, timelines, and exercises in determining the effect of immigration on the American society. Be sure to investigate the resources for educators and the eleven lesson plans, aligned to national standards, which challenge students to analyze demographic data, investigate U.S. immigration policy, and conduct oral history interviews with first or second generation immigrants. Created by PBS and Independent Lens.

tag(s): immigrants (20), immigration (58), migration (59)

In the Classroom

Use the myths and realities quiz on this site to assess student preconceptions before beginning a unit on immigration or a unit on immigration reform. Have students complete the quiz on individual computers in class, and print their results. Use the results as a way to start a class discussion on immigration and what surprised students. Focus on what students learned and what they had assumed previously. This would be a great activity for a civics or US history course.

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 (35), england (57)

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.

World history, U.S. history, rhetoric and debate, health, and technology are addressed by this comprehensive examination of some of the greatest disasters in maritime history - the Titanic, the Lusitania, and the Empress of Ireland. Full lesson plans (these are really outstanding!), aligned with national standards are provided. Topics include The Blame Game (a great role-playing experience), Bigger, Faster, Stronger, Higher (a comparison of the Titanic and Challenger disasters), and Titanic Artifacts (what we've discovered about the lives of those lost). Students can even learn about effective Internet search strategies in the Lost Liners scavenger hunt activity.

In the Classroom

Click on the section entitled "teacher resources" and take advantage of the free lesson plans and activities offered. Most require a basic knowledge of the 5 major liners that sank, so the day before activities have students explore the site on the interactive whiteboard or individual computers. To assess what students are learning, put them in groups and have groups select a liner that they will be researching. Groups will go through the information offered by the site and possibly other sites in an effort to attain images and information about their lost ship. Have groups create an online graphic telling the story of their liner and its immediate impact. Have students use a tool such as Woices (beta) (reviewed here). This site allows students to create audio recordings AND choose a location (on a map) where the story takes place.

In the late 1980s, perfectly preserved 3,000 year old mummies began appearing in a remote desert in China.

What can linguistics reveal about such ancient people? The site explores these unsolved mysteries and makes connections to similar finds throughout the world.

This on-line exhibition allows visitors to follow the footsteps of Lewis and Clark, explore the cultural landscape they encountered, and browse through a collection of over 350 artifacts that document the first transcontinental journey across North America. Highlights of this beautifully designed site include an interactive map, audio clips providing sounds associated with each place along the journey, and readings from words written by members of the expedition. Links to related themes are provided throughout the site. This is an outstanding resource that accurately presents many facets of this pivotal even in American history.
