8 Sites You May Have Forgotten About

#6 You Tube
This is one of my most used and relied upon sites on the Internet.  I just found this video to supplement the story we are reading about Niagara Falls.  I love how the video is like taking a tour of America.  My students will soon be creating a Virtual Field trip and this video is perfect for the inspiration we need.
