History & Social Studies

USA.gov

This site is a treasure trove of information about the United States government, including a list of presidents, facts about the flag, American currency, and more. It's written in simple language, though the vocabulary makes it more appropriate for upper elementary at the youngest, and best for middle to high school. This resource would be beneficial to teachers designing lesson plans about the U.S. government, or students doing research on the topic.

Subjects/Grades: Social Studies, 5-12

Advisory Council on Historical Preservation

The educational section of ACHP's website features links to lesson plans on historical sites and monuments, the military, National Parks Service, and public lands. The preservation aspect covers information on being a responsible visitor to these historic sites, plus what "outdoor ethics" are. Several links have tie-ins to science as well, through what natural resources our parks and forests provide, as well as archaeology. Additional information about African-American history is a huge plus.

Administration for Children & Families

Unless students are healthy, both mentally and physically, it can be difficult to help them learn. Teachers can be a source of mental health resources and support. This site covers infancy and early education for day cares and preschools, up through school-age children 5-13. They discuss childhood trauma, emergency response, and even specific practices for Asian-American and Native American children, plus some resources in Spanish. Resources on self-care for educators round out a beautiful site.
