Notes on Important Characteristics of Empires

Tips:

  • Don’t use Wikipedia

  • Search “____ Empire for students”, “…for kids”, “…timeline”, “…rise and fall”

  • Timelines can be a great way to find important dates / figures

  • Don’t forget to search for video documentaries, but don’t look at youtube comments (they are often from angry people who are still mad about the empire)

Where to research: Books in classroom, Library Books, Independent Online Research, YouTube Videos, BrainPop (username: yokohama, password hkc). Brainpop videos with connection to Empires include British Empire, Roman Empire, Spanish (conquistadors), Napoleon, info on World War 2. LibGuide on Empires, AND (really importantly) SchoolEB
