Weaving the Web: Interlocking the Technological Tools for Learning
Khan Academy videos will be used a supplement to further student learning. The videos provide very helpful information, and a little comic relief :)
These videos may be viewed in class or used for homework and projects.
Google Earth will serve as a our class' personal tour guide. Students often hear about animal, plants, and organisms, but they don't get to see where they are from, or how the surrounding the environment looks. Now, we can look up the locations of our studies and make our own map of the places we've visited digitally. Get ready to explore!
