Teaching the Spring Season Using Interactive Content
In this free, on demand webinar, Kids Discover President & CEO Ted Levine shows you how to build custom units on Kids Discover Online to provide your students with a reading list that weaves together concepts in geography, ecology, and plants, and that includes tons of interactive content that brings reading to life.
Take a sneak peek at some of the fun and interactive resources covered in the webinar:
Every incredible detail about the Sun, for kids, is packed into this unit, which examines the Sun’s composition, its position in the Solar System and the larger universe, and its centrality to life as we know it.
This unit explains ecology for kids with charts that show how the food chain works and a discussion of Earth’s 10 “biomes”, and will generate lively discussions with facts about our “ecological footprint”.
Any given place can be described in an infinite number of ways. Ready to find out what some of those ways might be? For kids studying geography, this unit paints a deeply layered portrait of North America and enables them to easily see the connections among the different characteristics of any particular location.
Seeking more info on the fascinating world of plants? Learn more about these key components in the food chain, Plants provides a comprehensive introduction to the way they grow, reproduce, and are central to all facets of human life.
Not just things of beauty, flowers, in this unit, are revealed in all their diverse glory, from the stinking carrion flower to the fly-eating birthwort. Kids first follow a flower through its entire life cycle, from seed to bloom and back again.
