The following websites that have been reviewed by librarians and are recommended as good starting points to help with your homework:

Smithsonian Learning Lab "More than a million images, recordings, and texts from the Smithsonian's 19 museums, 9 major research centers, and the national zoo. It is easy to find something of interest because search results display pictures rather than lists. Whether you’ve found what you were looking for or just discovered something new, it's easy to personalize it. Add your own notes and tags, incorporate discussion questions, and save and share."
