This site is part resource, part learning tool, and all fun for elementary kids! Your students can safely browse through pages of book recommendations, interactive activities, and kid-friendly contests. The "Word of the Week" quiz is great way to introduce new vocabulary, and the "Kids' Poll" gives kids a chance to "vote" and interpret a graph of the results.

tag(s): quiz (88), quizzes (100)

In the Classroom

Use the games section to help kids review and have fun with books! Set the site up as a learning station and let students pick and choose which ones they would want to play. This would be a great center for students during a free reading time or through out the day if they finish an activity early.

This expansive site promotes understanding of global issues using background information on the mission of the United Nations, country profiles, and downloadable curricula and lesson plans. A variety of cleverly designed interactive games challenge students to match countries and flags, test their knowledge of geography, or go on an interactive mission with "Pook" to save the world. There are many options for using this site in the classroom. Make the interactive activities part of an independent learning center, use the country profiles to introduce a geography lesson, or use the student-friendly resource to introduce the functions of the U.N. Qualify for free materials for your classroom by volunteering to review and test the site's features.

tag(s): countries (77), cultures (110), flags (22), united nations (8)

In the Classroom

WOW are there a lot of resources on this site! Use the quizzes and games to help students review before an assessment or practice the content after instruction. There are also webquests that could be used as introductory activities or as the starting point for individual or group projects. Save this site as a favorite to allow for easy retrieval and to keep up to date on updates added. This would be great in a Government or World History class.

The National Geographic Society designed this interactive site to provide background information for those who are planning a visit to the Canyon. But the impressive online tour of the South Rim is a useful tool for introducing students to the geography of the American south west. Students can learn about the physical features and plants and animals indigenous to the region. Just for fun, the site also includes Kids' Canyon, a collection of activities, print-and-go coloring pages, screensavers, and wallpapers. Be sure to investigate the K-12 lesson plans, aligned to National Geography Standards.

tag(s): geology (81)

In the Classroom

Beyond lesson plans, use the virtual map over the interactive whiteboard to show students the details of the canyon. Allow students to navigate through the site individually, picking which direction they want to explore first. Be sure to let the students work the interactive whiteboard - participation in technology often heightens interest. This would be a great way to introduce the material being studied.

This practical research tool provides useful, kid-friendly information about each of the fifty states.

Discover the culture of ancient China with this outstanding, interactive site that explores its artisans, geography, tombs, writings, and more. Each section of the site provides historical information, a story, an in-depth exploration, and a challenge. The challenge activities promote higher level thinking and are ideal for independent practice and review.

tag(s): china (67), chinese (50)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on Ancient China. There is a lot of content on the site, so it would be beneficial to create a graphic organizer for students to help organize their notes. (If looking for an easy find, we recommend using Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).) Teachers can also use the challenges to assess student participation, not to mention that kids will enjoy the brief respite from note-taking! A very useful resource for the world history classroom.

This rather specialized resource takes a look at six former political leaders who created entire political regimes: Mussolini, Ceausescu, Hitler, Hirohito, Stalin, and Tito, and examines their respective regime. Concise text, maps, photographs, and sound bytes, contribute to a multimedia experience that provides a clear and compelling introduction to these six political systems. A glossary, series of timelines, and links to related sites make this a very user-friendly site for student research.

tag(s): hitler (10)

In the Classroom

What's helpful about this site is the list of commonly used vocabulary and terms that can help ESL students or lower-level readers prepare for the unit. Browse the site before beginning a unit and collect a list that would be helpful to such students. Having the lists with them can help them prepare and participate in the classroom setting with more understanding.

The art and artifacts produced by travelers along this storied trade route are examined in this beautifully designed site. Five distinct themes focus on the lives and experiences of these ancient people: the invention of printing; languages and scripts; Buddhas and bodhisattvas; games; and astronomy. The student-friendly text and prolific images of manuscripts, artwork, maps, and charts make this a very approachable resource for in-class research.

tag(s): marco polo (5), religions (67)

In the Classroom

Use the learning portion of this site as a learning center or station during a unit on the Silk Road. There is a LOT of content here, so this would probably work best if you selected the sections students can explore to tailor it to your classroom content. To help students review the content, have them recreate a map using a tool such as Click2Map, reviewed here. Students can detail the geography of the silk road, as well as the content of the section they studied.

The issue of worldwide overpopulation is addressed in this site that explores the problem as well as potential solutions. Population facts and figures are presented along with descriptions of crises concerning natural resources, endangered species, the environment, and urbanization. This is a timely and thought-provoking resource that can generate some purposeful class discussion.

tag(s): population (62)

In the Classroom

This is a great site for a Cultural Geography class studying population and TFR. Use the fact sheets on this site about several developing nations to start a class discussion on population growth, and factors that contribute to a growing or decreasing population. This could lead into projects where students track population and label factors that may be affecting the numbers.

This Website presents the stories behind the farms, homes, people, and culture of Midwestern America. The American Dream is traced through historical photographs documenting the booming family farms that once dotted the landscape. Students can take a virtual tour of a prairie farmhouse, and explore the "literary connection" by following links to classic works inspired by rural America. This would be an excellent addition to a unit on westward expansion or twentieth century American literature.

tag(s): agriculture (57)

In the Classroom

Use the "virtual farmhouse" as a learning center or station during a unit on Westward expansion or while establishing background for the Dustbowl. If using to provide context for the Great Depression, have students compare the prairie of the site to what the prairie turned into during the great drought of the 30's. Use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram (reviewed here). Using the tool, students can create their own in groups or do it as a class on the interactive whiteboard.

By clicking on each item, students can enter multimedia learning environments that address many facets of one of the most grand and productive periods in India's history. Outstanding features of the site include an interactive coin cabinet, a virtual slide projector, and a helpful glossary. Interested students could easily spend hours browsing through the many nooks and crannies of this engaging sight, so be sure to give some definitive guidance to focus the experience. Also, visit the Staff Room to browse through lesson plans, worksheets, and set-up advice.
