History Fun Anyone?

History is facinating. I've been searching the internet for some fun sites that help bring history alive. Here are a few of them:

The History Channel has a page, "This Day in History" where you can learn all about events that happened today, whatever today is. Go there and amaze yourself and then your friends and family with the trivia you'll pick up.

Another great site is over at PBS Kids. Go back in time and learn secrets of the US Presidents, the election process and much more.

Hop over to Mr. Donn and have loads of fun. There are lots of free lessons and games and clip art too. This site is wonderful for children, parents and teachers alike.

I'm sure if you search the interent you'll find many more sites. If you have a favorite one, please share it here. I promise to give you full credit.

See you back here Friday with more on teaching/learning a second (or third) language.

Nice links, Joy!

Though not necessarily historical, I do like Snopes.com. They bust internet or email hoaxes, urban legends, etc., and often provide their true origins.

Thanks Christina. There have been several times I've popped into Snopes.com to check out things and they do have quite a bit of information. Thanks for sharing.
