  • Consider using a digital projector to project the multimedia items for entire class viewing (Flash movies, interactive tours, graphing activities, etc).
  • Many of the sites have printable resources for students and teacher facilitated lesson plans.
  • Send home website addresses connected to your classroom topics in your newsletters or list them on your classroom websites. Parents and students can explore the sites from home.
  • Consider assigning websites for additional practice, a place to begin research, or as an enrichment activity. 
  • Use online resources as CARE partner activities.
