As we adjust to school closures and changes in learning environments, we would like to provide a user-friendly collection of free, online resources in each subject area. The following list is for online history resources that students can use to explore a wide variety of history concepts through interactive projects, simulations and lessons. Some of these sites are free all of the time, and some are offering limited accessibility during this time of need.
- Active History– provides over 50 different simulations for learning history online
- American Panorama– provides a historical atlas resource with multiple maps of the United States for visual students
- Big History Project– offers a journey through 14 billion years of history in a self-guided online lesson
- Bunk History– offers a free hub for some of the web’s most interesting writing and and thinking about the American past and offers students a multi-dimensional connection between the past and the present
- Country Reports– provides online content on the cultures and countries of the world, including recipes, odd facts, and general information
- Massolit– offers an online library of lectures and articles that cover topics like philosophy, history, English literature, and ancient history
