My son’s school encourages students to use World Book Online when researching a topic. It is an excellent resource that allows students to explore any topic and save their research using the World Book tools. It has timeline templates to allow students to create a digital timeline and is suitable for all ages. I particularly liked the ‘Surf The Ages’ page which theorises – What if the Web had existed in ancient times?…allowing students to dip into imaginary news sites from ancient times, medieval times and modern times.
There is so much to explore… it is well worth a look!
