#1 I've been exploring a new site called Weather Channel Kids.
This site if full of fun facts, videos and information about weather. There are lesson plans for teachers, a parent section and interactive activities for students.
Weather Channel for Kids is sponsored by The Weather Channel and it looks like a great site to share with your class.
#2 Brain Pop has a new section called Brain Pop Games. Students can play games in science, social studies, math and health that are linked to Common Core and State Standards.
#3 Comic Builder Lego City looks like a great site to demonstrate some creativity.
Students can create their own comic and add their own dialogue.
#4 National Geographic for Kids
This site is so full of interesting, educational pieces of information.
There are many great skills students can gain by visiting sites such as the ones I am sharing in this blog post.
- digital literacy
- evaluation of a site
- analyzing and synthesizing visual media
- reflection and sharing of content
- navigation skills
Just to mention a few. I highly recommend giving students the opportunity to build their digital literacy skills through the exploration of educational sites.
