This is a really, really cool science website that my mom told me about. She works in a museum in the hands-on children's section, setting up projects and helping people as they need it. Some strips from this website were displayed once as part of an exhibit:

Enjoy!

Default Food Timeline

I thought this was fascinating. It tells you what people ate when and when and where various foods originated. You can click on links to learn more about the food. Probably good supplement for all kinds of history lessons.
