History
Many historical fiction books have become Newbery award winners. From ancient times to the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s, readers learn about history as they explore the human experience. In many cases, you'll find more than one award winning site from the same time period.
 
Consider student study groups that read different books from the same time period. Ask students to share their ideas across the Internet.

You'll find many Internet sites to help students better understand the historical setting of the books. Be sure to explore the photographs, original documents, and other materials that can help bring the time period to life for your students.
