How I Use It
I have used this site for warm-ups and for homework. I have had a greater response from them than the traditional pencil and paper assignments. I require students to draw conclusions and to create ways to expand research. I have general ed Living Environment and ELL students and they enjoy doing this.
My Take
It is a great resource for starter information. It is also great for inquiry based lessons where they get a little bit of information and have to do labs or research based on what they saw.
