If you are not able to offer interactive technology in the classroom itself, the students can still download Smart products on their computer at home. I wrote a grant a few years back to bring interactive technology into my classroom and it has made a huge impact on ...

I have used a number of these activities with my 5th grade class and they all loved the edible earth! The linked videos and acess to the museum site make it relevent to my students as we are located nearby and students can plan a visit with their families as well.

This is a very appropriate resource for High School level content, but at time the curriculum was way above the average Elementary level. I participted to help bulid my content knowledge, but at times was even more confused than when I began. Although I understand the necessity of in depth investigations and criteria, I wish there were levels of content delivery which educators could select based on state standards. Overall it was very descriptive, but lacked interactivity at times. I appreciate the auditory component and the ability to view animations.
