At Home in the Heartland Online

Developed by the Illinois State Museum, this site examines the history of the Midwest from 1700 to the present. The site divides the history of the Midwest into five periods corresponding roughly with recognized periods in the history of the American Republic: 1700-1800, 1800-1850, 1850-1890, 1890-1920, 1920-1950, and 1950 to the present. The exhibit for each period includes timelines, maps, oral histories, primary documents, narratives of key figures and events, and teacher resources. The site is designed for grades three through twelve with three different levels to customize its educational use, though the information in level three is certainly going to be informative for adults as well. The site is sponsored by Ameritech and the Illinois State Board of Education.
