This site offers a collection of outline maps for the continents, the US, and other nations suitable for reproduction and reuse in the classroom. Most are GIF files, but there are a few PDF files as well. From Houghton Mifflin.

tag(s): maps (292)

In the Classroom

These maps are excellent for a History or Geography teacher attempting to refresh students on the political geography of an area. Before teaching a unit on the Middle East or Asia, refresh and quiz students with these worksheets to help with both map skills and understanding of the area. Often a weak point in student knowledge, it can never hurt to help students become more aware of political geography.

Learn about castles, Pre-Modern Europe, and more.

tag(s): europe (74)

In the Classroom

Use this site as an introductory activity before beginning a lesson on the always interesting subject of castles, and why they were so important in Pre-Modern Europe. Students always seem to love looking at castles, so let students peruse the site in cooperative learning groups. Have groups search the site for the castle they think would offer the best protection in the time period being studied, and describe what qualities make it the best. Use an online poster creator for students to argue their cases, such as Padlet (reviewed here).

This Canadian site is written expressly for younger audiences, yet the thematic presentation is interesting enough to hold the attention of older students. There's lots of information, presented in an appealing, easily accessible structure. Great addition to any unit on exploration, or for the study of Canadian history itself.

This privately published site documents and illustrates the history of the trebuchet, a marvel of medieval physics that could hurl heavy things great distances. Students can learn how to build their own miniature version, and they can study why the trebuchet worked so efficiently. This one's both fun and instructional.

tag(s): medieval (27)

In the Classroom

Share this site on the interactive whiteboard or projector to introduce a unit or lesson on the physics of throwing machines. Use this site to provide a historic example of their many uses. Teachers can focus simply on the history of mechanics of the machinery OR can have students attempt to create their own based on the directions and resources provided. This would be a great resource for either a History or Physics classroom.

In the Classroom

Music or History teachers looking for music sources to supplement a lesson should look here first! Not only is there information to help teachers/students review - but there are resources that allow you to listen to the music being studied in each section. This could be useful in a lesson on the Harlem Renaissance, the 1920's, or even the Jazz age.

Large, colorful site presenting extensive information about Paris - in English and French versions.

tag(s): france (39), french (92)

In the Classroom

In a personal economy lesson, use this site to help students "plan a trip" to Paris. Assign students to cooperative learning groups, with each group receiving a hypothetical amount of money, and directions to find lodging, food, transportation while surveying the sites of Paris. This is a great way to teach students how to budget with real world prices and figures. For an emphasis on French history, require students to participate in certain tourist activities in their hypothetical situation - simultaneously creating challenges to their budgets. A great way to add some relevance to an economics lesson.

Enhance the foreign language curriculum through the integration of geography, food, and literature as related to Spanish culture. Students analyze literature created by modern Latino authors who use foods as symbols for identity, patriotism, religion, and nostalgia. This series of lessons promotes understanding of the Creole culture as it exists on the Caribbean islands of Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.

C'est Magnifique! Find out all about the most famous landmark in Paris. There's lots of information on the tower itself, a virtual tour, and a panoramic view from the top. This is certainly a nice way to introduce French geography and culture. The site incluea a section for kids and a quiz. Note: to read in French, click the French flag. Some of the interactive tour portions require a special Active X plug-in. When prompted, you will need to install these.

This is definitely a site to share on a projector or to allow students to explore on laptops or in a lab. Give them some questions to answer and send them "touring."

This site from CNN offers a look at internal and international issues affecting China, considering everything from the rise of a new middle class to the ecological impact of a new dam to the future of relations with the United States. While there's plenty of history here, the focus is clearly on how China fits into the current world order. Beautiful design and artwork!

Save this as a favorite and use it as a learning center or station during a unit on modern china. This activity works best if students have a graphic organizer to guide them through all of the information. If in need of help with the guide, we recommend using Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here). This would be a great resource for a World History or US government class.

This site from the Chinese National Tourism Office provides very general information on the features of China's various regions, paying particular note to places interesting to tourists.

In the Classroom

Introduce this site on the interactive whiteboard or projector during a unit on China, modern or Ancient since most of the spots mentioned have historical significance stretching over centuries. Allow students to explore the site on their own with the intentions of creating their own travel brochure based on this website and previous knowledge of Chinese history. Making sure that student projects are connected to historical content, projects can be as easy as paper brochures to as complex as video commercials. If using a video-based project,have your students make their own ads based on the videos and radio transmissions they can view here. Share the videos using a tool such as Teachers.TV reviewed here.

This site is a photojournal of a tour through the Chinese countryside, noting the ways in which local "farmers' markets" contribute to the vitality of an otherwise centralized Chinese economy.

In the Classroom

Use the images from this site to contribute to a class visual discovery based on the economic situation of China. Most of the images are representative of the free markets thriving in major cities, making it easy to compare and contrast with what students have seen in the US. Select 3-5 of the more stimulating images, placing them in a powerpoint presentation. Show students the slides via interactive whiteboard/projector, with students writing down what they can observe & infer about each image. After the display is complete, have a class discussion based on student findings. This would be a great review activity, allowing students to apply classroom knowledge on what they're viewing.
