ClickScholar Renee reminded me of this website in the KidsKnowIt Network that we’ve featured previously. It offers an engaging online history textbook, history games, and interesting historical quotes.

When you get to the ad-supported site, use the menu and click on “World History” to access a sort of virtual, interactive textbook containing a variety of articles on topics including:

  • Prehistoric Humans
  • The Ancient Greeks & Romans
  • African, Indian, and Chinese Civilizations
  • The Byzantine Empire
  • Medieval Europe
  • The Renaissance
  • The Reformation
  • The American Revolution
  • The French Revolution
  • And Much More!

The articles are easy to read, interesting, and enhanced with pictures and illustrations. Note: It may take a minute or two to fully download each chapter – but your patience will pay off. :)

Once you’ve read the articles, use the menu to click on History Games” and try playing the innovative arcade-style games that help kids retain the history facts and concepts in the articles.

You can also explore “Historical Quotes” from the menu that offers interesting comments from historical figures in every walk of life.

KidsKnowIt Network also provides fun history songs that kids may enjoy. Just click on the icon that says, “Play A Song for This Topic,” just below the menu on the left side of the screen.
