I stumbled upon this website while reading through another tech blog. History Buff is a neat website for anyone teaching American history. The two best features of the site are the narrated panoramic tours of fifteen historic sites and the newspaper archives. The tours can be projected on the big screen and provide a quick field trip without leaving the classroom. The newspapers give you a way to show students primary documents that date back as far as 1707. The newspapers are sorted into eras and are very clear scans of the actual newspaper. Check it out and let me know if you use it in your classroom.
