Fun websites

Steppie and Stella

Here are a few websites that we really like. They are not only fun, but also very informative!

Yahoo! Kids
You can use Yahoo!’s Kids as a sort of Internet home base. It has a plethora of games of all kinds, music, movies, jokes, sports, horoscopes, e-cards, and even a StudyZone that has information on animals, reference materials (e.g. a dictionary and encyclopedia), and more.

National Geographic Kids
Learn about things happening around the world. Visit the People and Places section, Animals, Activities or Stories. These are just a few of the great things on this website.

Math Playground
Play with numbers and give your brain a workout. Action-packed site for elementary and middle school students. Practice math skills, watch math videos, play a logic game and have fun, too.

NASA for Students
Information for kids in grades K thru 12. Games, videos, podcasts and many other activities available. Everything to do with space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics. Lots of excellent resources for homework and reports including 3D Models.

BrainPOP
Science, Social Studies, Math, English, Arts & Music, Health, Technology, you name it, is here to explore. Brief animated movies explain all the core curriculum subjects covered from grades 3 thru 12. The site is not completely free. We include the listing here because it is so jammed packed with great resources. Students say they would have missed a lot of the questions on their tests if they hadn't recently reviewed the BrainPOP clips. They offer a free two week trial subscription for families wishing to try out the site before committing to a subscription. Often there are free movies they offer for viewing. It's worth signing up for their free newsletter to discover free and new curriculum.
