Ancient History

History Cat

This site comes from a history teacher in Michigan, and has a free online world history textbook. It's visually interesting, and appealing to jr. high and high school level students. The site seems to be under development, and some links aren't working as of this writing. Definitely worth keeping an eye on this improving resource!

Penn Museum

This website from the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archeology and Anthropology has some great teacher resources. There are pdf's with activities, worksheets, and information. The site also has quite a bit of multimedia material related to the exhibits, which is useful even if you can't visit the museum.

History Animated

This nice little free resource has flash animations of military history. It's limited to just a few events (the Crusades, American Revolution, Civil War, and World War II) but the animations are nicely done and informative.

The Big Myth

A free, online learning module that compares creation myths from different cultures. Each myth is presented in a short animation, and there are downloadable files with cultural information and activities to accompany them. 

Vikings Unit

A study unit on Vikings using lapbook and/or notebook resources.  Includes links to websites, books, videos, crafts and games. Can be done with free curriculum materials and resources.
