This list of resources has been compiled for 9th grade history classes. If you find a helpful website, video or other resource that you think should be on here, please let Ms. Carpenter know!


Research Tips

  • Remember when searching to start broad and narrow as necessary.  Start your search, by researching the history of the colony (not the colonizer).  
  • Create a list of keywords to help you with your searching.  Consider conquistadors!                                                                                                                       
  • Use the source resources and bibliographies for further exploration.  Check Google Books if the books are not available in our library.
