Great interactive graphic from the U of Utah that shows the size of things (giant coffee bean off-screen to the left here; grain of salt lower right)

This is a ridiculously well organized collection of links for teachers… sorted by subject, and then more specific subject.  You ought to check it out and browse.

 

This site has “closed”, but they will remain open and viewable for another 3 years.  Apparently they lost funding.   Let’s take advantage of it while we can.  I have a suspicion that they will find funding to maintain the site beyond three years.  Time will tell.

Great bank of primary sources that are sortable by time period.  Sources range from antiquity to modernity.  Fantastic.

North Carolina Digital Textbook

August 22, 2011 Leave a comment

This is an astonishing collection of sources having to do with North Carolina.  As a digital textbook, it is incredible.  Nearly every page is linked to a lesson plan, further links, etc.  This is a treasure trove for any history teacher.
