Resource:Electronic Passport to the World
Provider:Mr. Dowling’s Electronic Passport
Summary:What a treat! Mr. Dowling is a teacher, comedian, and radio personality who has put together a website for teachers and students that lets you browse the world in what he calls a “virtual classroom.”
Description:When you get to the site you can use the menu on the left side of the screen to learn about Mr. Dowling, find out how to navigate his website, and listen to some of his crazy character voices as they talk about historical events. OR, you can jump right in and click on a destination to learn about a variety of places including:

Mesopotamia
Ancient Egypt
The Crusades
Ancient Africa
Colonial America
India
Chinese History
Ancient Greece
Rome
The Renaissance
The World Wars
Canada
South America
and much, much more!

Just click on an icon such as “Ancient Greece” and a new page opens with selections such as Greek Mythology, Homer, Sparta, Athens, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Alexander the Great and more. The information is presented in user-friendly text enhanced by illustrations, photographs, and links to more resources. Most of the information is geared for about 5th grade and up — but younger children will enjoy portions of the content (including the crazy character voices) with a little help from a mom or dad. Highly recommended — bookmark this one, as you’ll want to return often.
