As a skills-based health educator, we train teachers and students to first determine if a website is a valid and reliable source of information before they use the site for a source of information.

A few students found the answer key online and copied it. They were grade 7 and used their own devices.
The social studies for kids site has a few ads and the search function was hard to find and use.
The Rome website was okay. Not much text which is fine for this exercise.

PBS.org has a large database of historical documents and articles, good for elementary through middle school. MacroHistory.com is an excellent database, but has the same ad issues as SocialStudiesforKids.com

Margaret, do you mean the http://www.socialstudiesforkids.com/ site? We'd love a recommendation!

I just used this lesson with two fifth grade classes. We are still working on it and have not finished the BINGO or the Reflection. My only comment at this point is how annoying the advertisements are on the site. I would rather direct them to a database without commercial ads.
