How I Use It
I use this product with a group of preschoolers despite the age level indicated by the Graphite Personal. I felt that it will bring the lesson on nature alive for my students. I showed them the website and taught them how to navigate it and it allowed them to develop their love for nature and understanding of technology all in one website. I taught the students that our country bird was the eagle and this website had a great video on the Bald Eagle. My preschoolers and elementary level students enjoyed the realistic pictures and almost felt as if they were flying with the bird.
My Take
My overall opinion about this website is that it a great tool for teachers to tie the lesson into real world pictures and make a profound impact on the students. I enjoyed the pictures as well because they were different and extremely fun to look at. The videos offered on the website were informative and went to a pace that I was able to stop and teach my students on their developmentally appropriate level. I like that it is free and the parents were able to go on with their child at home and enjoy this tool as well.
