How I Use It
This is a great website with a plethora of developmentally appropriate information for students. It can be used for introducing a lesson, reviewing a concept, summarizing a topic, etc. There are many options to extend learning - quizzes, games, activities.
My Take
I think this is an excellent teaching tool that caters to the digital natives. I like the extensive list of topics as well as the supplemental activities that can be used to deepen understanding. It can be used as a whole group, small group, or individually.
