PBS: World History Lesson Plans

World History is an expansive subject with topics including the Beginnings of Human society and Early Civilizations (4000 – 1000 BCE) to The World Since 1945. John Green’s Crash Course video collection takes students from the Agricultural Revolution to World War II. Students can also practice paraphrasing using a lesson on Timbuktu as a thriving Islamic center of culture and analyze the power of propaganda with an interactive lesson. From the building of the pyramids in Ancient Egypt, the writings of the Mayan Civilization, and the fall of the Communism in Eastern Europe, World History covers history all across the globe.
