Social studies teachers across the country are celebrating right now.
The U.S. National Archives ― aka the official record-keepers of America ― uploaded a lot of historical GIFs on Friday. Teaching just got hella more fun!
The GIFs are based on historical videos, photos, animations and other media, and you can snag them all on Giphy. There are more than 100 GIFs to choose from, and new ones are being added daily.
Each animation includes a link to the National Archives database so you can educate yourself on the history behind the image.
Here’s a collection of our favorites:
Ice-skating chimpanzee, 1963
Sammy Davis Jr. USO show, 1972
Babe “The Great Bambino” Ruth, year unknown
