Hi! It’s Saturday, June 4, 2011 and time for Electives at ClickSchooling!
Lil’ Fingers: You Tube Zoo
Age Range: 2-6 (Designed with young children in mind, but folks of all ages will enjoy the animal videos.)
Designed by a computer usability professional, Lil’ Fingers is a friendly website for the littlest computer users with free animated and narrated storybooks, interactive educational games, coloring pages – and a terrific archive of over 100 animal videos in their YouTube Zoo!
When you get to the site, you’ll see a menu of “Animal Zones” including:
*African Region – See eagles, hyenas, meerkats and more.
*Elephant Jungle – Watch camels, capybaras, elephants, guanacos, etc.
*Asia Adventure – View monkeys, hornbills, bears, and porcupines.
*Forest Fun – Observe birds, owls, okapis, otters, etc.
*Polar – Check out penguins, polar bears, reindeer, and a walrus.
*Outback – Watch koalas, kangaroos, a monitor lizard and more!
As explained at the website, “All videos have been reviewed to not include animals mating, killing or bodily functions.” Plus, because you watch the videos on this website, you don’t have to be concerned about shielding your kids’ eyes from inappropriate comments that are sometimes posted by random visitors on the YouTube site.
When you’re through watching videos, be sure to use the vertical menu on the left side of the screen to access the animated and narrated storybooks, play interactive computer games that teach as they entertain, and print out coloring pages that include the alphabet, numbers, shapes, animals, events, and much more!
