Online Project - Discovering YOUR Place in History Since 1999

Thanks & Recommendations

A very special thank you to the teachers who took the time to share their students' work with us and schools throughout the world.

To & (now both defunct) who provided free hosting for the site in its early days.
To Those who recommended the project.  Several of the following excellent resources, which featured teacher created projects, have morphed since the late 1990s into outlets selling only commercial products while others have changed in other ways including eliminating classroom teachers' contributions to online education.  Having said that, here is a list of sites which have recommended The Day I Was Born:
