How I Use It
I use this in a variety of ways in my classroom. I have used it as a computer workstation site during my small groups rotation. The students have used this as a research tool for their animal reports. During my leveled reading group I have used this site to support the teaching of nonfiction text features and comprehension strategies. Whole class lessons have incorporated the videos, photos, maps, and games to support my teaching content with visuals.
My Take
This site is a great tool to use in the classroom. It captures students attention through the variety of high interest content. It is interactive with games, videos, and activities. It supports the standards I am teaching in science, social studies, and literacy.
