Britannica Spotlights Archive

Britannica Digital Learning

Britannica frequently produces mini websites to put the “spotlight” on a calendar event or a particular subject at specific times of the year. The sites are designed for use by teachers, librarians and parents of primary school children. Each spotlight is a stand-alone mini website where you can access the relevant Primary Britannica article as well as a specially created “Activity Centre” to help children learn while having fun.

We are working on adding a direct link to the Spotlights for secondary students from Britannica School. We apologise for the inconvenience!
