Here's a 2 minute video that covers the history of earth & humanity with still photographs and some pretty powerful music. This would make an excellent introduction to a history class, and could be used as a sample for students to see imagery & its emotional effects.
Hope you are all enjoying the London Olympics! We're busy getting teachers ready for teaching in London this upcoming September, but still managing to keep the Olympics on our radar.
PS) The video above was made by a high school student! Amazing.
