This year National Geographic is celebrating 125 years of publishing pictures and stories from explorations all over the world. One of the ways that National Geographic is publishing items from their archives is as parts of exploration timelines. There are four timelines of exploration hosted online right now. Those timelines are Underwater Exploration, Women Explorers,Space Exploration, and National Geographic History. The images in the timelines highlight notable achievements in each area. Each of the captioned images can be enlarged.
On Timelines.tv you can find six timelines of important eras in U.S. and European history. Each timeline includes short (3-10 minute) videos about people and events in the era. The timelines also include pictures and short text descriptions. The six timelines currently available are A History of Britain, The American West, Medicine Through Time, American Voices, The Edwardians, and Nazi Germany.

The games on this site won't teach you new skills, but they could be fun review and practice activities. One of the games that I like on the site are "Fool's Gold" in which you try to separate irregular verbs from regular verbs. Another game that I can see students liking is "Snowball Fight" in which students throw virtual snowballs at the correct answers to math problems.
