Look for New Site to see what's been added lately!

Portals are sites that exist to provide you with lots of lists of links to many other good sites. Kind of like what we do.

(We put Yahooligans first because if you only have time to check out one portal, Yahooligans is it! Note: the site's been drastically changed lately. Yahoo! now calls its fine portal site Yahoo! Kids)

 

Yahooligans School Bell This is a huge web portal for kids. Monster site with links to thousands of safe sites about everything. Large, well-organized groupings of links to curriculum areas. School Bell has over 2800 language arts sites, over 400 math sites, almost 15,000 science and nature sites, over 4500 social sciences sites, and more!

Actionbits "Action Bits is a series of in-depth technology skills classes developed by a team of professionals — experienced teachers & veterans of the high-tech industry — committed to teaching kids the computer skills they will need to excel in school...and beyond!"

Charlotte Holter's portaportal is a very good portal with many links to various elementary/middle school subjects and activities! We could just sit and look at this site.

This site is set up with a model railroad theme. Pete's Presentations (Themes and Topics is the page title) lists 838 (yes, eight hundred thirty-eight) education topics, from ABC's to Zoo! Each Topic has links to that subject area, sometimes dozens of links. Not only PowerPoints (lots of them) but games and links to "good sites." Greta's Games has mostly academic games organized by subject. Often a dozen or more links per subject.

Anything you need for K-8, and some for higher schooling as well.

 

COOL! Students' Homepage and Student Resources Online from School District 91 - Nechako Lakes, British Columbia, Canada. This is without a doubt one of the largest and greatest collections of educational links on the web. It is amazing what's on here! Like a fractal it goes on and out and out, but you will never get lost. We LOVE this site layout! There are things here for every elementary school subject: ABCs, technology, lit circles, anything we looked for, it's here, both well-known good sites and new discoveries! Go there and see what we mean! We want to praise Mrs. Jill French, who created this wonder and keeps it organized (and thanks for your kind permission to list it here).

A necessary site for your bookmarks. Interesting site layout, too.
