History World and the 1960's

History World is a tremendous asset for history teachers and students. It contains a large amount of historical information about nations and people from around the world and the creators are always adding more information. The site allows you to search alphabetically or use their search bar. It also contains timelines, quizzes and maps that identify historic locations. History teachers should really take the time to look around this amazing site. Best of all, the site is free to use.

Next is a site called the 1968 exhibit, which instantly appealed to me because that is the year of my birth. The 1968 exhibit chronicles the year that saw the election of Nixon, the escalation of the Vietnam War and the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy. The site offers a month by month glimpse and a timeline of 1968. This site is great for history teachers, students, and for those old enough to remember, a way to relive this turbulent year.

Speaking of the 1960's, I wanted to share this very interesting web page dedicated to discount stores of the 1960's. It is a web page that shares pictures and descriptions of various stores that thrived during the decade. Anyone old enough to remember will certainly enjoy this trip through time.
