It is called #GivingTuesday!
at this link.
What a difference we can all make this holiday season and in the lives of so many.
Two years ago we added Capstone's PebbleGo to the Van Meter School library collection as one of the wonderful resources that Heartland AEA brings to the area school districts.
I have never seen any online database bring this much excitement, learning, and fun along with it! All of our youngest learners from Pre-K through 3rd grade loved everything about PebbleGo and we found them using it on the laptops and iPads all of the time at school and home.
Last Friday Capstone brought this excitement to everyone again with its release of PebbleGo Next State & American Indians Studies!
From the moment I heard they were creating this new database I couldn't wait for this day....and I just know all of you will be excited to check it out too!PebbleGo Next was created with our 3rd through 6th grade learners in mind giving them an amazing place to go to learn more about all 50 states and each American tribe.
They can click on a U.S. Region or Culture Area of the American Indian Tribe which will prompt them to narrow their search even further.
Three styles of citations are included with each article too.
One more super fun thing I love about PebbleGo are the two buttons included on the front page below the map.
Our young people can go to "Games" to find eight different games to play about the United States and American Indian Tribes.
My son Hagan and I are having fun trying PebbleGo Next as our Thanksgiving break starts.
I hope you take a little time to try it out too....I know you and your students will love it just as much as we do!
This is the perfect week to find some extra fun holiday eBooks to read at home and as you celebrate Thanksgiving with your family and friends.Featured Collections throughout the year....and the ones they have featured currently prove just that!
