Hi!  It’s Thursday, February 9, 2012 and time for Social Sciences at ClickSchooling!

Recommended Website:
BBC: History for Kids

Age Range: 8-14 (fun for everyone, with parental supervision)

ClickScholar Cie reminded me that the BBC offers one of the most engaging history websites on the Net. They have archived all kinds of free, multi-media, interactive games that teach about famous historical events and people in world history while they entertain.

When you get to the site you’ll see a menu that includes:

*Ancient History – Play games that teach about Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, the Iron Age, Vikings, and more. Can you resist the “Mummy Maker Game” in which you prepare a body for burial?

*World History – Learn the importance of world cultures including Africa, China, India, Mesopotamia, and South America. Find out how the Aztecs created a double-headed serpent, meet the first emperor of China, and explore the Indus Valley.

*British History – Play games to learn about The Battle of Hastings, the Tudors, the Victorian era, and run a city at the height of The Industrial Revolution.

You’ll also find games that teach about the history of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. And click on “Hands on History” to build your own castle or create your own cave art!
