Browse the timeline of war and conflict across the globe.

 

This database of global wars and conflicts is searchable through space and time.  You can drag and click the both the map and timeline to locate particular battles and wars, and then read more information about that conflict.  This resource would be a great one to show students and let them explore to find what they see as interesting.  This site is brimming with potential.

the potential of this site is amazing between the interactive learning system and the correlation between the timeline and location. If the human geography class is anything like this i can't wait for it!

IfItWereMyHome.com

IfItWereMyHome.com | Canadian History Education | Scoop.it

Want to help your students gain perspective? If It Were My Home can help. It's a site that allows people to see what their lives would be like if they were born in a different country.

 

Every point of comparison - such as birth rate, electricity usage, education - can be expanded to show a brief explanation and statistics. There's also a map feature that overlays the compared contry onto your own location to illustrate a clear comparison of land mass. 

 

Students can visit this simply out of interest as they learn about other contries in the world or hear about them in the news, or to help provide context during research that involves other contries.
