School History

This British site has resources for history learning at jr. high and high school levels. There are some resources available for free, but most require a subscription (reasonably priced.) Resources include printable worksheets and information, powerpoint presentations, short videos and more.

D-Day Overlord

This website has a wealth of information on D-Day and the Battle of Normandy. There are text articles, plus hours of video content and thousands of photos. Articles include stories of veterans; explanations of military tactics, weaponry and equipment; and much more. This is a great resource for a unit on World War II or military history.

National Archives

The education section of the British National Archives has a nice collection of classroom resources. There are lessons with primary sources from the archives and discussion questions, sets of lessons around various themes, and a few online games. You can search the collection by age level or historical time period. 

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!

TeachRock

This is a great collection of lessons on the history of Rock and Roll. Lessons include lots of media content, printable activities, discussion questions, and more. There are lesson tracks organized chronologically or around various themes or grade levels. Lots of interesting and useful content...all for free!

All Sides

This website provides access to news content from all sides and attempts to evaluate biases. It's goal is to remove readers from their "filter bubbles", promote critical thinking, and fight polarization. It's a great resource for older students (and adults!) in these difficult political times.
