How I Use It
I use this site as a resource for students who need enrichment, or as an impetus to a new inquiry-based lesson.
My Take
I love that this site is Gamified, and that students are exposed to 'big themes' or 'Thresholds' in a cross-curricular way. Great as a way to extend learning. Wish there were no login--as this caps my use to 13 and over.
