>Great Sites for Social Studies & Science (Second Term)

As a Grade 5 teacher I am always looking for exceptional sites for use on our Smartboard.

Not all children learn in the same way. For visual learners in particular, using interactive sites/games on the Smartboard and viewing videos are a two means of enhancing learning; of exploring concepts and sharing information.

I hope that you find the sites below useful!

Sincerely,
Ally
