Flashback History Movies


Flashback Movies are very short animated movies about historical events from a company called Flash Ones.   Each well-done movie is followed by a brief text explanation of the event. They have a small collection now, which they expect to increase.

Right now the movies are accessible to Intermediate English Language Learners.  I’ve made several suggestions to the creators of the site about how they could make them even more accessible, and they say they’re considering them.

These movies have the potential of being very helpful — sort of a free series of Brainpop Movies.

I’ve placed the link on my World History page under Sites That Cover Many Periods of World History.

  1. Good God, Larry, you are such a wonderful bringer of resources. Every day, I look in my Bloglines, and there you are, my friend, with something new and wonderful for me to examine.
    This history movie link is so cool.
    I appreciate the guidance you provide and the resources you share.

  2. Kevin,

    Thanks for your kind comment, and congratulations on your Youth Radio’s Edublogs Awards nomination!
