How many times have you given an internet lesson to the class and find yourself spending more time on getting the students to the sites you want them to see, than spending time on the site itself? We have a solution for that! History Link 101 is set up so you can find what you want from any page. At the bottom of all pages there is a search box. From there you can direct the students to lessons or links easily. Each lesson and link has a code such as L1010. So in developing your lesson you don't have to put steps like - halfway down the page on the right side in pink is link to etc. All they do is type in the code and go to the page you want them to be at and can find the link since they are in numeric order (pretty easy huh?). We will continue to add more areas, lessons and links to expand on what the students can see and learn in your classroom. If you have any questions or comments please write.
Here are some games - for all your extra free time.
