Where Can I Find...?

Where could we find good research sites for countries and historical figures? That was the question posed by the upper elementary teachers recently. Here's what I gave them:
I also reminded them to use Easybib or bibme DURING the research process. Too often kids can't go back and find the exact web page where the information came from, so it's better to capture the source while viewing it. Another suggestion is to have students start at Wikipedia. While not a valid primary source, most entries do contain links at the bottom of the entry that direct back to primary sources on the topic.
