J.K. Rowling's site is a welcome change from the standard publisher's fare, offering an assortment of Harry Potter trivia and many interesting facts about how the stories came to be and have evolved. While it's not strictly instructional, this one would be a great source of facts for a Harry Potter webquest.

This site brings the many faces and struggles of the Civil Rights Movement into focus with riveting images by photographer Charles Moore. These moving scenes of riots, segregation, and triumph will make an unforgettable impact on your students. Use to generate reactions and open discussion in a 20th century American history class.

tag(s): africa (177), african american (113), civil rights (123), photography (162)

In the Classroom

Take some of the more powerful images in this site and use it to create a visual discovery activity. Open the site on the interactive whiteboard or projector, and go through the images one at a time - giving enough time for students to analyze and interpret the images individually. Have students focus on observations, inferences and predictions they can make from the images. This activity works best if used with a graphic organizer.

It seems so simple at first - an animated animal alphabet. But this flashy little site has much more to offer. Early elementary students can use it to learn the alphabet, but creative, techno-loving secondary students will love trying to figure out exactly how this works. Challenge art students to create a work using only basic alphabet shapes. The possibilities are endless!

There's a mysterious piece of art in the gallery? Can you discover its secrets? Send your students on a virtual mission to work through the mystery while interacting with a variety of activities, multiple-choice quizzes and images. Discovering one piece of information leads to understanding another facet of the mystery. Responses are automatically recorded in the "Detective's Notebook," so students can keep track of their progress.

This extensive source, designed especially for elementary and middle school students, provides excellent information about the ancient cultures of the Near East, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. An additional section explores 19th - 20th century sub-Saharan Africa. Images of museum artifacts from each region are liberally distributed throughout the site, along with some interactive maps, occasional videos, and games. The Teacher Resource section provides lesson plans (aligned to national standards), suggestions for integrating art into the social studies curriculum, and helpful tips on using the site.

tag(s): egypt (70), greece (26), greek (40), greeks (30), romans (35), rome (28)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of the free lesson plans offered on this site! This site could also be used as a learning center or station during a unit on Ancient Civilizations. Because there is a lot of content, we recommend creating a guide or follow along for students to accompany the site. For help creating graphic organizers, try Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).

Explore how myths and legends have taken visual form in the works of artists with this online gallery of 26 masterpieces from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Apart from the art, students can learn about what a myth actually is, and read about multicultural mythological themes. Includes a glossary, bibliography, and teaching materials.

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on myths & legends. This would be a great introductory activity, as a lot of the content is defining and providing examples that differentiate the two. This would be a great resource for a Language Arts teacher.

This page developed by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam offers some breathtaking features that will bring the artist's work to life for your students. Click on the "Van Gogh & Gauguin" link for a beautifully designed multimedia presentation that goes far beyond background information to reveal the very soul of the artist. Another must-see is the virtual 3D tour of the permanent museum collection. It requires the download of a Windows plug-in (directions are provided), but it is well worth it to walk through the rooms, learn about the paintings, and interact with other visitors (a feature that must be monitored closely if used in the classroom).

This online gallery contains a staggering number of works of art - more than 10,000 - organized by artist, country, movement, and name. Biographical information on each artist is provided. Of special note is a "World Literature in Painting" link that thematically connects art with classic literary works.

tag(s): literature (274)

In the Classroom

Use the "World Literature in Painting," to find images to accompany your study of a piece of literature. The images hosted here are small, but the descriptions are descriptive and provide some excellent background on the art and literature. Find larger copies of the image elsewhere, and use them over the interactive whiteboard or projector to introduce interpretations of a piece of writing. Bare minimum, this would be a great way to show the impact the writing had on the culture.

This unique online gallery provides in-depth commentary on artistic works, artists and subjects. Of particular note is the exhibit of American landscape painting from 1820-1880 which draws connections between the paintings in the collection and the literature that inspired them. Another impressive feature is the i-Map Project which provides an interactive, multimedia exploration of the works, ideas and innovations of Matisse and Picasso.

Enter this virtual exhibit to view satellite photos of some of the world's most amazing geographic and geologic treasure. Basic maps are provided to show visitors the approximate location of each strange and awe-inspiring art form. Dramatic deforestation in the Amazon Basin, the West Fjords of Iceland, and the Lambert Glacier in Antarctica are among the breathtaking images included in the collection. Use this site to inspire your art students, illustrate a geographic concept, or enrich an environmental science lesson.

This lesson plan designed by the New York Times challenges students to reflect on the uses of math in their daily lives and develop clear, compelling ways to communicate mathematical concepts to the average layman. After reading and discussing a related New York Times article (link provided), students must work with a partner to research a mathematical or physics concept and design a multimedia brochure explaining that concept to the general public. A clever and thought-provoking way for students to understand math from the inside out.
