Go Social Studies Go - Multimedia Social Studies Books

Go Social Studies Go is a nice site developed by Kenneth Udhe, a social studies teacher in Michigan, for his students and the world. Go Social Studies Go is essentially a series of multimedia books about common social studies topics. The site is divided into four main sections; World Geography, World Religions, Ancient History, and Colonial America. Within each section is a series of booklets containing text, pictures, videos, and links to additional resources.

Applications for Education
Go Social Studies Go could be an excellent resource for middle school social studies teachers. For the topics covered, the multimedia booklets provide as much content area information as you'll see in a typical textbook. For high school students, the multimedia booklets could be a good primer or refresher on many topics.
