How I Use It
I have printed off some of the activities on the website for my students. I have also created different web quests for my students to complete over a specific topic, in which they use this website and navigate through the different activities. I also encourage them to complete some of the online activities at home to extend their knowledge of the different topics that we are studying.
My Take
The Exploratorium website is a great resource for teachers and students. It has many different activities and labs that students can use to help encourage their interest in Science. The web site is well designed and easy to navigate. The website also uses student friendly language to explain the more difficult concepts.
