I am packing up for my move to Nebraska and found my April 2006 copy of the NCSS Social Education journal that has some great links to sites I used in my social studies classroom. Here are some links to primary source documents to aid in the teaching and learning process in the social studies classroom:

The Library of Congress

White House audio tapes from the Miller Center

Smithsonian Institution Civil War site

The Virginia Center for Digital History

Documenting the American South

University of Houston Digital History site

Historical map sites include:

David Rumsey Map Collection

American Memory Project

Remembering Pearl Harbor Attack Map

Eastern Theater of the Civil War

Geography & Map Reading Room

The Newberry Library Historic Maps in K-12 Classrooms

Ancient World Mapping Center

Central Pacific Railroad Maps

Osher Map Library

There are so many other sites that tie into these topics and more! I have a list of links at my geography site that may be helpful too. Enjoy!
