AnyQuestions AnyQuestions is a free online reference service for all New Zealand school students. The service is open Monday to Friday 1–6pm and is available for anyone with an internet enabled device - computer, tablet or smart phone. Our te reo Māori service, Uiangapatai.co.nz, is currently in abeyance. The aim of AnyQuestions is to help students develop valuable information literacy skills and build their confidence. This is accomplished through a reference interview where an AnyQuestions librarian explores the question or topic with the student then works alongside them to guide them to appropriate online resources. The interaction with the student is through simple-to-use text based online chat. Social Studies for Kids - Ancient Civilizations Ancient Civilizations The history of civilization is a long one. This sites take you way back into history to see human civilization as it first looked.
