The close of the school year is a time when students can demonstrate mastery on things learned in classrooms in a variety of ways, and one such way is in the form of a project. Click through the links below to see ways in which purposeful projects can be enhanced thanks to the wonders of the Internet!

  • Times Machine: This site allows students to access New York Times articles which are exact digital copies of the famous newspaper dating back to 1851. With articles about everything from the sinking of the Titanic to the death of President Lincoln, this is a valuable resource that can be used as source documents in history class or for many other classroom uses.

  1. Hello, I think your website could be having web
    browser compatibility problems. When I look at your blog in
    Safari, it looks fine but when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues.

    I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Aside from that, wonderful site!
