Websites I found interesting (weekly)

  • Engage Students in History
    With the interest surrounding the election and inauguration of President Barack Obama, the recently launched free, interactive Web site PrezQuest may be a good way to keep young people interested in the history of U.S. presidents. Participants are guided through a series of president-related games and trivia by a host via a Web cam. Cartoon presidents such as Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Jackson explain how the Electoral College works, the requirements for being president and the general election, among other, related topics. Participants then play games in which they use the information they’ve learned to score points and proceed deeper into the event. For young children who want to learn more about the history of the presidency, PrezQuest educates while still being fun and engaging. There is a home version for students and parents and a classroom version that teachers can use in school.
