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.

Pandia Press

This company produces the REAL Science Odyssey and History Odyssey materials. They offer a secular, classical approach to science and history study for elementary and junior high level students.
