This site offers a wonderful list of Twitter feeds to consider if you are just starting out or if you are adding to your feed related to history. The list includes the Twitter name with a link and a short description. Feeds include the Library of Congress, quotes and sayings from Thomas Jefferson, and HistoryDay (see what happened on this day in history). Feeds are separated into categories such as media, educators and students, and military to help navigate the different types.

tag(s): congress (33), history day (23), twitter (50)

In the Classroom

Create a classroom twitter account and choose feeds to follow that relate to classroom studies. Assign different students to follow the feed each week to summarize and review. Challenge students to find other history Twitter feeds to follow. Have students create a Twitter account as a historical figure as part of research projects. Looking for more ways to use twitter in the classroom? Read more about Twitter from TeachersFirst's Twitter for Teachers page.

Put a link to the activities on your class website and let students use as a center. Use the quizzes as a pretest to see what students already know. When you have finished studying the unit have students retake the quiz to see how much they learned. Print out the provided activities and use for homework or to provide extension activities for more advanced students.

From the Federal Aviation Administration, this site includes links to many of the sites listed here. Also links to a skit written for elementary and middle school students, and instructions for building a 1903 Flyer out of Styrofoam. There is a downloadable Wright Brothers Curriculum Guide, and an Orville and Wilber Wright Activity Guide. The downside of this site is that nearly everything must be downloaded and cannot be previewed first, so you spend time waiting for the download without knowing what you're getting first.

tag(s): aviation (39), flight (36), wright brothers (25)
