This afternoon in Mrs. Henderson’s second grade class, the students used Dell 2120 netbooks to do scientific research. Using our school’s subscription to Encyclopedia Britannica Online and two other internet resources (below), they were able to read articles and take a virtual tour of animal and plant cells.  Students learned to distinguish the similarities and differences between both types of cells and the function of different parts of a cell. Students were very engaged in the lesson! | | Encyclopedia Britannica (Requires password)
