1 ) Women in World History
- Created by The Center for History & New Media (CHNM), this website houses
a collection of primary documents, support materials and lesson plans centered
around women and women's issues throughout world history.
- The CHNM has a strong focus on comparing women in different societies, the
contact different societies have had with one another and how global issues such
as technology have impacted women.
- Well this is obviously perfect for a history classroom this website could also provide
valuable insight if you are studying a novel such as Lives of Girls and Women by
2) Google World Wonders Project
- This Google endeavour is currently a virtual encyclopedia of 132 historic sites
from five different continents. Not only do users have imagery from Google
Streetview and Google Earth but they also have information from UNESCO
World Heritage, pictures and videos!
- World Wonders has a specific tab for Education where teachers can download
resource packages that have some pretty interesting project ideas that could
work with math, English, social studies or science curriculums.
- Google will continually be adding more sites to the list which I think is good
because I was disappointed that entire continents were left out and they didn't
have the pyramids of Egypt.
Happy Monday everyone!
