Zondle is a great website where you can build your own interactive games around lessons or play already made game. Great for all ages and subject areas, I would use this site as a way to build supplemental knowledge in the area of social studies.
Instagrok is a great tool to help students breakdown researched information. With resources like google or wikipedia students are often over whelmed with a vast number text, quotes, and citations. With insatgrok a student can type in a research topic and instagrok breaks the information down into a nice web that has organized the most important information on your research topic. For students that are still struggling with filtering information on the web this a great resource. I used insatgrok to help teach my students about the Aztec’s and was amazed by the way they breakdown the information in a more students friendly way.
National Geographic has developed amazing and insightful videos, magazines, and online journals that have been seen and used around the world and in thousands of classrooms.
This tool has great potential when working with it towards social studies curriculum by allowing you to search a topic then narrow your search by looking at photograph, video, place, channels, magazine, and the news.
When teaching a lesson on Aztec history I was pleased to find over forty different videos and articles that provided rich insight into the history of the Aztec culture.
