Time Search is a good general resource for history teachers and students. Simply enter a year, press "go" and you're shown a list of significant events that happened in that year. Scroll up or down the list to see events that happened early or late in that year. Time Search offers options for refining event lists by theme or region in addition to the obvious date refinement option.
Applications for Education
Time Search could be a handy reference tool for history teachers and students. The events displayed by Time Search don't contain much detail so it is best used as a general resource to get ideas and get started on research activities. The "Search Sites" option provides links to other resources that contain information about the year entered into your search.
