Teaching Geology

It’s time for the Wednesday Website suggestion!! For two years, I was the Technology Specialist at a school in Georgia. During that time, I amassed a large collection of websites that I use with my students. You can download my E-Book of Websites for the Elementary Classroom for free from Teachers Pay Teachers or Smashwords, or, you can check back here each week for the Wednesday Website suggestion.

For my current Earth Science Unit, we are using lots of different websites to research the materials of the earth.  This week’s website  - Kids Geo - is my students’ favorite research site so far.  They have all found some rgeologykidseally good information on this site to help them with their Glog Project, and it’s sorted out with a kid-friendly index on the left hand side.  Best of all, the information is written in a way that even my English Language Learners can pick out the information they need.
