How I Use It
I use this in my classroom whenever we have a few minutes to spare during class. This can be after the students complete an assessment, or a large project, etc. It has also benefited as an aid to each of my geography lessons. I use it as a "hook" to begin a unit or allow students to complete extra work at home looking for facts. The pictures are a great visual when I do not have the actual artifacts to show students and it is all in one place! The videos keeps students engaged and the articles are really tailored to their learning level.
My Take
I love using this in my classroom. I have used it so much that it has been added as a bookmark on my tools bar! My students have logged in and played the games at home and can easily use this to complete research projects! It is very user friendly, my 6th graders have no trouble finding whatever they need on here.
