“I LOVE HISTORY” WEBSITE NOW ONLINE 

Utah State History has launched a new website.  “I Love History”
(http://ilovehistory.utah.gov) engages kids in Utah’s history and
encourages critical thinking and understanding.  “This new website is a
valuable resource for young people, teachers, and anyone interested in
Utah’s past,” says Philip F. Notarianni, State History director. “It
offers people a vision of possibilities, and a motivation to contribute
to Utah’s unfolding story.” 
 
Topics include: 
§         People: groups who have come and gone through Utah, including
prehistoric peoples, American Indian groups, explorers and trappers,
Mormon settlers, other immigrants, and other individuals.  
§         Place: Utah’s land and geography, Utah’s counties and built
environment.
§         Events in time:  stories of important events in Utah history
and an interactive timeline of world and Utah history. 
§         Topics:  special topics in Utah history. 
§         Fun and games: Fremont matching game, History Explorers game
and other fun learning games. 
The site draws from publications that State History has contributed to
or produced, including the Utah Historical Quarterly, the Utah History
Encyclopedia, Beehive History, Currents, the Centennial County History
Series, and A History of Utah’s American Indians, as well as collections
held by State History.
 
This website is a work in progress; State History welcomes your input.
