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.

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.


A curriculum for jr. high/high school level that covers writing, literature, geography and history.  The first goal stated in their description is "to teach our children HOW to think, not just WHAT to think."  Encourages independent research and critical thinking.  It is fairly expensive, though.
