How I Use It
This is one of my favorite research sites to use with students! They can choose from four main categories: Animals, Earth & Space, Biographies, and Social Studies. Students really like to learn facts about animals. This can be done through pictures, videos, and text that can be read aloud. Key vocabulary words can be clicked to find out meanings. As students conduct research, they can cite information, and print articles and pictures. Printable activity sheets help students to record information and draw pictures. Students always seem to enjoy watching the short video clips, and love to listen to actual animal sounds.
My Take
This is a user-friendly site for primary students. It's great for different learning styles as it appeals to the visual and auditory learner. PebbleGo provides a great supplement for teachers. The printable pages provide a way for students to collect facts and use information to help write reports and share with others. Students can easily navigate around the site and quickly find information which is presented in a similar manner no matter what topic is chosen. PebbleGo makes research fun for students!
