Wow, what an exciting find for this week!
NeoK12 is a ginormous collection of educational videos, lessons, quizzes, and games for kindergarten through high school students. The topics are conveniently listed by subject-area on the homepage. Just click any desired topic to find a wealth of resources. You will find pictures that can be used for presentations, links to online games and puzzles, and then a list of videos and lessons. All of these resources have been reviewed by K-12 teachers, but it’s always a good idea to review these yourself before using them with your class. =)
The Educational Games, Puzzles, and Quizzes is really outstanding. Many of them would be fun to use with an interactive board/projector or even at a computer station in your classroom. Be sure to check them out.
You will also find many Interactive Diagrams that focus on science and social studies skills like Ecosystems, States of Matter, Simple Machines, and the American Civil War.
This example is from the “Label the Diagram of Plant & Flower” interactive diagram:
From any page of the NeoK12 site, you will see a “Today” button on the far right. Click it to see the “What’s Up Today?” page with historical events for today, the word of the day, a daily photo gallery, and other interesting facts.
What do you think? Let me know how you’re able to use NeoK12 with your students!
