Teacher Review For Have Fun with History

Useful collection of historical videos that can be used as part of a larger lesson designed by the teacher. The videos are great for flipping your classroom.

How I Use It
I've mainly used this as a repository of good educational videos on a variety of different topics in History. It's a very useful collection of dated videos that take you back in time. I've used these videos in my lesson plans as a resource that is part of a larger lesson. The site by itself will offer a rather limited kind of activities, although links are provided where kids can continue to explore more on the topic.
My Take
Have Fun with History is a website that provides a useful collection of videos, links and activities on a variety of historical topics. I keep coming back to the site to use the videos, more so than for the activities. I don't appreciate the fact that there are advertisement banners all around the site.
