Internet Resources, Civil War, and Gizmos

Lately I have been coming across many excellent U.S. Civil War resources but among all the resources I have found the Civil War Daily Gazette stands out. It is blog that gives a day by day account of the bloodiest war in America's history. The Gazette was started on November 4, 2010 to commemorate the War's sesquicentennial and will continue until the year 2015. History teachers, students, and Civil War buffs should definitely bookmark this site .

This next site, Internet4classrooms, has been around since 2000 so it is not new but it is new to me. I am really not sure how this site has gone undiscovered (by me) for so long. It has a fantastic array of resources for teachers of all levels and subject areas. It has a section dedicated to common core, online tutorials, internet links, and more. If you've never seen Internet4classrooms, or you haven't been there in awhile, then do yourself a favor and see what it has to offer.

Today's final site is a fun blog called Oh Gizmo. This blog likes to share or poke fun of gadgets, products, stories and things they discover online. Some things they blog about are cool while others are simply bizarre. Either way this blog is always entertaining.
