Website of the Week: THIS DAY

THIS DAY – Images from this day in history (Gr. K-12)

From Nikon, THIS DAY is an interactive website that provides images and a brief description of  past events that took place on the same day as today. In fact, the site will display past events that happened during the same week. Use the timeline at the bottom of the page to note the dates; play/pause the timeline player using the tools found in the bottom-right corner.


  • Use this site with students for creative writing or ideas for a free-write session.
  • Have students investigate the date provided by the site to see what else was going on that day, week and year.

Thanks to Free Tech for Teachers for sharing this find.
