There are many free web resources featuring encyclopedia style articles full of information for your classroom.
You might be familiar with the History television network. This site, History.com, is related to that network and has free resources you and your students can use when doing research on important historical events or people.
While watching the above video, I learned how to browse to the “Topics” area of the website to drill down through different content areas and find what articles are available. There's also a search bar perfect for locating something specific. Each article connects you to any related videos or speeches as well.
Interested in more history resources? Take a look at this article, An App to Explore History Around the World, for a free mobile app that allows students to explore history around their own neighborhoods, or on the other side of the planet.
