This site examines the "Cold War" events that led to the construction of the Berlin Wall, life behind the Iron Curtain, stories of escapes, the political changes that brought about the wall's demise, and what life is now like for those who no longer live behind the Curtain. Includes period photographs and a gallery of art work from the East side. Also available in German and French.

tag(s): cold war (29), communism (4), german (64), germany (28)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on the cold war in a history or government class. To show what they have learned, have students pick one of the topics and create a digital map summarizing what happened. Have students use a tool such as Woices (beta) (reviewed here). This site allows students to create audio recordings AND choose a location (on a map) where the story takes place.

Follow Christopher Columbus on his 1492 journey to the new world with this informational site that reveals details of his life before the voyage, excerpts from his journals, a timeline, descriptions of the native people he encountered, and his activities after his return. Nice resource for a unit on explorers.

tag(s): explorers (61)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on the famous explorer. Because of the large amount of information, this activity would work best with a guide to highlight for students what is most important. For help creating such graphic organizers, we recommend using Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here). This would be a useful resource within a US history classroom.

This is much more than a site about Auschwitz. In addition to presenting a portrait of one of Europe's most infamous concentration camps, the site explores the historical context in which Hitler and the Nazis rose to power and follows the chain of events that led to the development of mass extermination camps. There is much riveting and chilling information to be found in this resource - from interactive, captioned maps to reflections from victims and perpetrators.

This comprehensive site covers all aspects of the Berlin Wall, from its construction in 1961 to its symbolic presence today. History students can find outstanding information in the form of a timeline, facts and FAQs, a collection of memories from Berliners, and vintage photos.

tag(s): cold war (29), german (64), germany (28)

In the Classroom

This site has a lot of resources that could be used in a class discussing the Cold War and how it specifically impacted what was East and West Berlin. For one, teachers can use the images to supplement a lecture or to prompt discussion. There are also eye-witness accounts in which people reflect on their experiences with either side of Berlin's wall. Open one of the transcripts on the interactive whiteboard or projector to share with the class. Have students respond in a reflection piece how a wall in the middle of their school, home or town would affect them and what their own reaction would be. This is a great way to tie the concept of the wall to something more personal and help them connect it.

This Web Quest engages students in examining the complexities of Victorian society through the eyes of Ebenezer Scrooge. Having developed a new attitude after visitations from the three spirits, Scrooge is ready to change the world by running for mayor of London. Students - working as campaign managers - must help Ebenezer develop campaign points and outline strategies to woo the public into accepting his ideas for social reform. Aspects of Victorian life described in A Christmas Carol, form the basis for this activity, although it could easily be adapted to any of his other novels.

tag(s): christmas (64), dickens (13), england (57), holidays (147), victorian (21)

In the Classroom

This would actually be a great resource for a government class working right before the holidays! During a unit on campaigns, use this activity as a way for students to think outside of the box in applying their lessons. This could even be used alongside a language arts classroom studying "A Christmas Carol," to ensure all students are up to snuff on Scrooge's character. This is a fun way to look at political campaigns with an interdisciplinary focus.

This high level resource would be an excellent addition to an honors English class. Major texts from the English Renaissance are provided in their original form, and outstanding multi-media tutorials provide serious students with in-depth background information on Shakespearean plays (King Lear, Romeo and Juliet, Richard III, and the Merchant of Venice) and Renaissance book production (folios, quartos, and editing). The pace is fast! Use of the "pause" feature when viewing the tutorials is recommended to avoid whiplash. This is truly an outstanding tool for your best and brightest literature students.

This well-organized site presents an authentic and factual view of the Holocaust in a format appropriate for middle and high school students. Text, historical photographs, maps, images of artifacts, and audio clips provide a riveting experience for visitors. This resource is organized by themes which include Nazi Rule, Jews in Germany, the "Final Solution," Nazi Camps, and Rescue and Resistance. Each theme is supported by in-depth information, a helpful glossary and timeline, and a list of key dates and events.

tag(s): holocaust (39), jews (20), nazis (10), world war 2 (142)

In the Classroom

Use the images on this site to design a picture walk in your classroom about the holocaust. Select 10-15 of the more powerful images, choosing a variety of subjects. Assign students to begin at specific numbers, before allowing the class to rotate around the classroom every 30-45 seconds. At each image, students should quickly write down what they observe, infer and predict about each image. At the end of the picture walk, have a class discussion based on the notes students took during the walk. This would be a very interesting way to introduce the topic in a non-lecture format. For help creating the graphic organizers, we recommend using Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).

Primary source material including photographs and personal interviews form the basis for this revealing look at the Holocaust. Visitors can explore three separate paths: a history section that provides a brief overview of the Holocaust and the experiences of the victims; a liberators section that offers 10 transcriptions of interviews with those involved in the liberation of concentration camps; and a camps section that profiles four of the most notorious concentration camps. The images and recollections are troubling, so use carefully in the classroom. Developed by the Georgia Institute of Technology Library and Information Center.

The Tower of London's crucial role in English history is provided along with an interactive map of the entire complex that permits independent investigation of every nook and cranny.

Use this site as a guide for a group activity researching the Tower of London. Seperate students in groups, randomly assigning each one of the many subject headings within the site. Have the groups read and interpret the contents of their section, to be presented to the class as a whole. Have students narrate and add text to an image using UtellStory, reviewed here. Challenge students to find a photo (legally permitted to be reproduced), and then narrate the photo as if it is a news report. To find Creative Commons images for student projects (with credit, of course), try PhotoPin, reviewed here. Something like this will take up a whole class period, so only use it if you have the flexibility schedule-wise.

Those interested in Sir Winston Churchill will find this site's offerings more than ample.

What a cool way to bring some personality to the characters that often seem too stoic to be human.
