This year I have put together a list for my students of five sites that they might find helpful in their classes. These sites are ones that over the past few years my students have routinely used. I do not necessarily think that they are all great but there is something about them that students seem to like and have proven to be helpful in their studies.
InstaGrok: This is a great search engine that shows how facts and concepts are related. This is a great visual tool to teach kids about how searches are conducted on the web.
Fact Monster: This site allows students to find information quickly and keeps them on one site so that they do not get lost in a variety of links looking for information.
Wordsmyth: is and easy to use dictionary that provides definition pronunciation and alternative words for students to use.
Bibme: Is a great free citation and bibliography maker. It is simple easy to use and auto
fills in a lot of details for the students.
