  • Military History - A great site! It presents this vast topic by using a timeline that lets you choose what era you want to search. It has military history in general aviation, military technology and weapons, military and diplomatic biography, military museums and institutes, and naval history. Lots to see and do.


  • The Utah State University Oral History Program - This site provides an excellent springboard for oral history projects. The procedures and examples present on this page can be applied across the K-Life grade levels.


  • PBS Home page is an exciting site with many different options available. It coincides with the great stuff your local stations are broadcasting. The multimedia ideas for social studies are extensive.

"Portrait of Black Chicago," American Originals," "A Letter from Jackie Robinson," and "JFK Assassination Records Collection" are just a few of the titles NARA has to offer.
