Travel Through Time

History Pin is the place where people come together to share their historical pictures and stories. Together we want to collect old photos to build up an archive.  See locations as what they looked like years ago. (just click 'explore the map') This site is great to pop up and show students how the setting looked right from the time frame of a novel you're reading or what towns looked like during the period your studying in social studies.  Way to extend a lesson!

  1. Hey, Erin! I'm your newest follower!

    History Pin looks like a really cool site, and I love the idea of using it with novels to create a sense of setting. Your blog looks great so far, BTW! Swing by mine when you get the chance.
