How I Use It
I do interdisciplinary lessons with Social Studies (travel brochures and mapping); Science (animal census); Math (measurements, degrees, distance calculations, etc.); Reading/Writing is enhanced in every lesson. In my own subject, Computer Technology (research skills, navigation skills, etc.
My Take
This is a must in every classroom and every grade level. The learning and teaching capabilities are endless. Science, geography, photography, math, etc. The students are actively engaged.
