Excellent resource for young students to research topics
I wouldn't use this product as a teaching tool, but would absolutely use it as a resource for students to gather information. I like that this site reads the text to the students, and provides realistic pictures. This site would benefit the students even more if it provided even more information on the topics.
How I Use It
I use this website in my classroom when we are studying various units that include science and social studies. This is a friendly and informative website for the younger students. Not only do they gain realistic information, but they have access to pictures and a video as well. The students love the photographic images. I like that they incorporate the various topics on certain subjects. It is also beneficial that the text is read aloud to the students. This year, my students had their graphic organizer with them while listening to a specific topic so that they could jot down specific information. it worked out really well.
