In technology class with Mr. Richard Stemple, third graders are researching early explorers on library laptops using the school’s subscription to Encyclopedia Britannica Online. This online resource allows our younger students to view age and level-appropriate reference materials and content for a variety of projects and assignments.

Students not only learn how to search on the web efficiently and gather information, they are practicing reading skills and map skills as well. During this particular lesson, Mr. Stemple reinforced and supplemented the early explorers book project and lessons that are taking place in third grade homerooms. It is always great to see children excited about learning and technology!
