How I Use It
One example of how I used Instagrok was with 3rd grade. During Black history month I assign each student a person to research. Using Instagrok they organize the information that show for the web prior to doing a write up. I'm not a big fan of sites with sign-in pages but if you are doing a 1 day research then you can just print what the students have been working on that day.
My Take
What I like about this site is that it allows students to delete information that does not make sense from their web (graphic organizer.) This is great for the visual learners. Although the notes above recommend for 5th, I think that as long as a student can read research they should be fine with this site.
