As always I like to share some of the best resources that I find online.  While this one is set up for Tennessee, it still breaks down the areas of science that we all study in grades K-8.  I hope this will be helpful for you.

You can't do better than access a math gaming site that is set up by grade level and California standard.  Here's another one to check out.

Recently I've been asked about varying websites for teachers who wanted to integrate technology into their lessons.  Even places to have students use in the classroom during group rotations.  I've decided to periodically list a few that I come across that can easily be bookmarked for students and teachers to use.

First is the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives.  This site is great.  It's broken down by standard strand and grouped by grade level.  Students can use these activities on a stand alone computer, with an interactive whiteboard, or a wireless mouse pad like the iPen, Airliner or Interwrite pad.  

Try out the Money activity in the 3rd grade  number sense section.

Next is not so much a website, but a newsletter with links to multiple themed websites.  Eduhound is part of T.H.E. Journal (Technology Horizons in Education) and focuses on the classroom. You will receive a weekly newsletter with information on the current theme.  The link below is the current edition with a calendar theme.  Check it out.

Heres' one more that is a great Literature one.  It's called Lit2Go.  The University of South Florida has created hundreds of grade level mp3s that can be downloaded or just listened to on the web.  Everything from classics to poetry like Three Blind Mice. A great listening center.

I hope these websites are helpful.  Please feel free to post information about great websites you know about.  I'll be posting more later.

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation recently launched a site called Principles of Freedom. It's beautifully designed and has many places where you can view original historical documents in detail. The site is based on timelines so you can trace the history from the initial declaration up to the formation of the constitution. A great resource on the beginnings of the American Revolution.

You can find it here: http://research.history.org/pf/

I would recommend viewing this site with Mozilla FireFox.
