How I Use It
I used the website to create a Webquest for 4th grade classes. I was wanting the students to work on their Internet research skills. I created a list of articles they had to find and certain details for each article. They had to find the information for each; I used all the different areas so students would have to spend time and find the information. They enjoyed the activity.
My Take
It was a great tool to use for Internet research. The information for each article is well laid out. They really liked listening to the audio with the different articles. They also liked the videos because they saw the kids were their age. The time machine was a fun option to that the students felt like they were actually traveling back in time. The main page was somewhat difficult to navigate for my lowest students. Some of the words were hard for the kids to read; an audio button would have been helpful. Overall this was a great tool to build a lesson upon!
