We had the privilege of actually going to Yad Vashem.....what an amazing experience....In case you are wondering what it is....it is the Jewish Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem.

Age of Imperialism (Lesson Plan). The Age of Imperialism represents one chapter of An On-Line History of the United States, a new program for high school students that combines an engaging narrative with the broad resources available to students on the Internet. Teachers can use this chapter with its accompanying Internet based lesson plans in place of a standard textbook or they can use it to supplement existing social studies materials.

The Gateway to World History, a mega site.

I have found a very interesting website for studying countries. It brings you to a World Fact Book home page and you can pick your country of choice and find out tons of information. It is maintained (as you may note) by the CIA which makes the information (to me) that much more interesting. ~Angela

historical info on the Korean War.
Free Educational Materials are available for teaching about the Korean War, including class sets of a special 52 page issue of Cobblestone Magazine on the Korean War. Included are Historical photos from the National Archives. Since these are in class sets, you might consider ordering one for your support group library or co-op class, or at the least, sharing with other home school moms to make the most of these resources.
