Eyewitness to is a site that lets students select a period in history and see personal stories of people from the time. A nice combination of a great deal of information and many historical photos and drawings that bring learning to life.
Make social media work for you! Students take a primary source picture, and add a hashtag that encapsulizes the mission/goal/accomplishment the person had. Love this because students MUST know all about the historical person to create a good hashtag!
