Pinterest is a great resource for people to discover and share pictures, videos, and websites. While it currently ranks third behind Facebook and Twitter, it is (in my opinion) superior when it comes to sharing resources. With that in mind, here are four Pinterest pages that should be followed by every person who teaches or loves American history.
The National Archives contains 13 boards with only 84 pins. While this is a small number by average Pinterest standards, this collection most likely will continue to grow.
is a Pinterest page from the National Archives that focuses on the the
lives of U.S. Presidents. It contains 32 boards and over 350 pins and
features many pictures that are unique to their collection.
The Smithsonian has 28 board with ore than 500 pins, many of which are extremely useful to history teachers. With topics such as "presidential inaugurations" and "black history month" the Smithsonian's Pinterest page is worth a serious look.
The Smithsonian's National Museum of American History Pinterest site offers the greatest array of topics and resources with 35 boards with over 1100 pins. With such a large collection of resources to explore, this site is an absolute must for any fan of American history.
