Human history is elegantly presented in this collection of photographic essays depicting the architecture and objects we've left behind. Abandoned steel mills, insane asylums, coalmines, and train yards are captured in stark images that create powerful impressions. Some of the photographs have been combined into multimedia Flash movies that are definitely worth viewing. Add this resource to a unit on 20th century American history, use the images as prompts for creative writing, or project in your classroom to inspire student photographers.

tag(s): photography (162)

In the Classroom

The photos on this website are beautiful and could easily be included in presentations to give students something more tangible to hold on to in a history class. Teachers could also use this photos as writing prompts. Save the webpage as a favorite and refer students to it during a unit on any of the places photographed. Have students write a short essay as to what they see in the picture, and what they can infer. Teachers can use these images to prompt letter writing, journal entries, newspaper reports, etc.
 This resource requires Adobe Flash.

Secondary students can use this interactive tool to experiment with the color, space, and visual rhythm characteristic of Piet Mondrian's work. Start with one solid block, then follow basic instructions to create horizontal and vertical divisions. Each rectangle can be easily resized or re-colored. A few simple mouse clicks will yield impressive results.

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 (179), african american (114), 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!

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 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.
