It's not exactly the Etch-a-Sketch you remember as a kid, but this virtual version of a childhood favorite offers all of creative challenge, plus a few new features. Get your creative juices flowing and incorporate this site into a review of basic geometric shapes, add it to a literature unit as an illustrating tool, or use it with art students to produce virtual "pen and ink" sketches. If nothing else, the activity provides great mouse practice for early elementary students.

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 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 (41), greeks (31), romans (35), rome (27)

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).

Follow the Activities link to find some visually challenging interactive activities. This site would be an engaging addition to a life science or art lesson. Use the activities to encourage creative problem solving, or select one of the video images to use as a creative writing prompt.

Your students can easily navigate through this site on their own and will be amused for hours, so set some time limits! Headphones are highly recommended.

Photography can be both an art form and a form of scientific inquiry. Photos of People and Cultures can promote human understanding better than any written words. This site from National Geographic can serve both ends if used properly. Art teachers "focus" on tips and techniques and photography advice areas, while science/social studies teachers will easily locate a wide range of plant, animal, culture, and geography images. As always, the photos themselves are exquisite.

In the Classroom

Share a photo of the day as an activator at the start of a lesson on your projector or interactive whiteboard. Allow a student of the day to select his/her photo of the day as a class inspiration. Share a photo as a visual writing prompt. Use tools on your IWB to discover and reveal design elements in the photos in art class. Use selected collections on laptops with student partners (galleries) to provide a visual experience of a location or culture you are studying, asking students to observe for visual evidence of some of the major concepts you have discussed in class.

Use this site as a learning center or station during a lesson on the evolution of mail services in the US, and how services such as the pony express was affected by Westward expansion. Allow students to explore the site on classroom computers, using the stamp template as a formative assessment of their understanding. To make the stamp activity more content-based, have students design their stamps to reflect what they learned rather than allowing them to draw anything they can think of. History teachers will like this one!
