How I Use It
My cousin, who is five, is beyond fascinated with space. Together, we explored the website https://www.sciencefriday.com/articles/chlorohumans-space/ and I found that he preferred to listen to the audio segments while reading along. He grew bored of just reading, since the text were small.
My Take
Personally, I feel like this site was made specifically for those interested in the medicine, science, or space. This tool could be used as an add-on to a lesson plan, but should not be used by itself, since the website is limited on topics. I liked how the website offers the option to read and/or listen to the articles; however, I did not like how the website only contained articles and was asking for donations from kids/teachers.
