kidcyber contains a collection of text resources targeted explicitly to K-6 students for research and inquiry into science content. View collections of material under eight different content headings. In addition to age-appropriate text, this site also includes images and videos. The diverse range of topics includes sports, technology and inventions, space, and more. The site was created in Australia, so some of the pronunciations and spellings may differ from those in American English. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable.

tag(s): aircraft (17), animals (265), australia (27), dictionaries (49), earth (173), inventors and inventions (68), nutrition (133), planets (110), space (203), sports (82), stars (61)

In the Classroom

Include this resource with other content when teaching science concepts. Include a link to specific sections of the site for use as non-fiction reading content. Instead of having students draw a poster to share information about animals or plants, enhance learning by asking them to annotate an image using ThingLink, reviewed here. ThingLink allows you to add links including text, video, and more to images. Extend your students' knowledge by setting up a Global Virtual Classroom, reviewed here, with a classroom in a different part of the world to compare and contrast your environments.
