How I Use It
We completed a unit on oceans and I had the students research different ocean animals of their choice. It was more of an introduction in how to conduct research - what to look for, how to tease out the pertinent parts, and how to pull all the random facts together into a more full picture they could then present to their classmates.
My Take
I wish there was a little more opportunity for the kids who are deeply interested in one animal in particular to dig deeper into knowledge about said animal. There is good information and often includes a super short video, but my little learners who were already obsessed didn't learn anything they didn't already know. For kids just starting out and learning about a new to them creature, this is a fabulous resource
