This site is a collaborative resource for curating and sharing art history teaching content. Begin with the Lesson Plans to find ideas divided into three broad themes, each with several subtopics. Each lesson includes background information, ideas for content, and suggestions for after-class activities. Visit the Resources section of the website to find information for AP Art History, book suggestions, podcast ideas, and much more. Art and History's e-journal provides articles and a forum for educators to share and learn about teaching art history.

tag(s): 1600s (16), 1700s (33), 1800s (54), 1900s (48), 20th century (48), architecture (66), art history (75), artists (73), china (58), greece (25), medieval (26), photography (134), renaissance (31), romans (31)

In the Classroom

Share this site with art and history teachers to use for cross-curricular lessons and activities to enhance instruction. Use a bookmarking tool like Padlet, reviewed here, to collect and share ideas with students. For example, when teaching about 20th Century history, create a Padlet with a column that includes ideas from the 20th Century Photography collection, add a column with 20th Century fashion, and another column with links to music from the same time period. Use the information from your Padlet collection along with your current lessons to provide students with an overview of the culture of the time along with the historic information. Have students use a timeline creator such as Timeline JS, reviewed here, to provide a chronology of art incorporated with important dates in history. Ask another group of students to create interactive maps using Google My Maps, reviewed here, that include images, links, and videos to tell the story of art and history in different areas of the world.

PBS Kids' focus is mainly educational activities and videos for kids in Preschool, Kindergarten, and Primary age students. However, there are a few programs for older students; find them by selecting You Choose. For younger students, select games, videos, and activities about well-known characters like Clifford the Big Red Dog, Arthur, Peg and Cat, Dr. Seuss, and more. Clicking All Games will give you 29 categories to choose from, for example, Team Work, Feelings, Engineering, Spelling, Reading, Healthy Habits, and many more. Click New Games to find topics such as Guess the Feeling, World Orchestra, and others to help familiarize youngsters with flight, trains, counting, and well, you name it, and PBS Kids probably has it!

In the Classroom

Discover and share the many free resources available on PBS Kids. Show clips on your interactive whiteboard, or with your projector, then have students complete an accompanying activity. With younger students, use FlipGrid, reviewed here, as a video response platform for students to share how they would use what they learned by watching the videos or using the interactives. Alternatively, you might try using Synth, reviewed here; Synth is an extremely easy to use tool for creating short audio and video soundbites and automatically pieces together soundbites into threads to share as podcasts. PBS Kids is perfect for sharing with parents. Include a link to activities on your class website along with suggestions on how to use activities at home.

Can you solve the Rubik's Cube? This campaign is based on the goal of teaching 8-18-year-olds how to solve the Rubik's Cube and gain a sense of accomplishment and pride. Guides share the secrets to solving the cubes in 2X2, 3X3, and 4X4 formats. In addition, the site contains guides for lesser-known versions of the Rubik's Cube. The Educator's Guides include lessons aligned to Common Core Standards as well as STEM/STEAM Standards. Use the information on the site to borrow a class set of Rubik's Cubes for free through their Cube Lending Program, just pay return shipping.

tag(s): critical thinking (104), logic (193), problem solving (246), STEM (215)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of the free lessons and classroom lending program to bring Rubik's Cube problem-solving activities into your classroom. This resource may be the perfect solution for students who struggle academically to achieve success uniquely. Prepare students for the cubes' arrival by brainstorming ideas on how to solve cubes (keep in mind there are different versions). Find a YouTube video with master Rubik's Cube solvers to promote interest in the activities. When the cubes arrive, use them as a problem-solving center by providing the solution guides for students to follow. As students become proficient in solving the puzzle, enhance their learning by asking them to use a video explainer tool like Biteable, reviewed here, to share their tips and successes. Challenge students to share their cube-solving speed by posting a chart for each of them to add their fastest times.
