History educators will appreciate this trove of resources from the UK National Archives. This collection contains over 150 classroom resources that cover a myriad of aspects of (primarily) British history from 1066 CE to the present day. Resources include lesson plans, interactive games, teachers' notes, and more. These resources are searchable by time period, ages of students, and by resource type, and many of the lessons are designed in a way that employs inquiry-based learning and encourages students to think critically. Although these resources have largely been created for a British audience, non-UK educators will also find much here that they can make use of in their own classrooms. For example, there are resources on the American civil rights movement, World War Two, and the French Revolution, as well as lessons exploring ways to learn from historical photographs. Educators in the UK school system may be interested in this collection's video conference, virtual classroom, and live workshop offerings, which can also be browsed on this website.
