EdHeads: Activate Your Mind

Age Range: 10-18 (Grades 5-12, with parental supervision)

 

This website offers free, colorful and engaging educational animations designed for teachers and students that explain how things work. EdHeads is a non-profit organization that raises money to produce the animations through the ads you’ll see on the site. The ads are randomly generated, so AS ALWAYS, parents should preview and supervise use of the site.

When you get to the website, you’ll see the list of games. The 5 games that do not require membership are: 

  • Manufacturing Technician
  • Nano Start Up
  • Trauma
  • Virtual Hip Resurfacing
  • Sickle Cell DNA

Each animation is narrated (so turn on your speakers) and comes with a “Teachers Guide” that provides the recommended grade level, tips for using the animation in the classroom (that can be tweaked for home education), printable activities, state and national standards, as well as quizzes.

The site provides the option to see graphic pictures of real surgeries, etc., so again, PARENTS SHOULD PREVIEW TO DETERMINE SUITABILITY OF CONTENT. Some of the activities and animations provide links to recommended sources for further learning as well. We have not reviewed those links.

Farming History

(livinghistoryfarm.org/farming-history/)

Age Range: 8-18 (Grades 3-12 approximately, with parental supervision)

 

This website is a companion to a real “Living History Farm” in Nebraska, where you and your children can learn about the history of agriculture in America and how technology has changed it.

You can also learn about the man, David Wessels, whose estate made possible his vision of a Living History Farm. One of his major concerns was “that today’s kids – both urban and rural – have almost no idea how farmers went from essentially a medieval system of plowing with horses to huge tractors run by computers with global positioning systems and air conditioned cabs.” 

The story told at the website, goes back to Native Americans who first cultivated the fields, through the first European immigrants staking out the prairie ground, to boom and bust cycles, and then the incredible technological innovations of the 20th Century. 

When you get to the site you’ll find information on: 

  • Farming in the 1920’s
  • Farming in the 30’s
  • Farming in the 40’s
  • Farming in the 50’s
  • 70’s to Today

You’ll see videos and or graphics and sound for each, along with links to these categories: 

  • Farm Life
  • Making Money
  • Water
  • Machines
  • Crops
  • Pests & Weeds
  • World Events

Listen to interviews on many aspects of farming history as well.

Also, on the left side bar, be sure to check out the link for Ted Kooser – podcasts from a former U.S. Poet Laureate. And the video link has all the videos in one place.

The Living History Farm seeks to educate everyone about the role agriculture plays in providing nourishment to the world. If you can’t make it to Nebraska to explore the farm in real time, this is the next best thing.

Internet Polyglot

(www.internetpolyglot.com/)

Age Range: 13-18 (Grades 8-12, with parental supervision)

 

Internet Polyglot offers a variety of free interactive lessons and games to help you practice over 35 languages by memorizing vocabulary words and their meanings along with phrases and simple sentences.

Scroll down to select the language you want to learn. Then choose the translation you want. A new page opens that displays all of the vocabulary lessons (includes audio) that cover topics such as animals, weather, transportation, food, money, shopping, education, entertainment, numbers, colors, clothing, time, and much more. You can also watch pictures of objects and hear the word that describes them pronounced by a narrator. And this is sort of like virtual flash cards: 

  • Picture Game – A word is displayed and you select the correct picture.
  • Guessing Game – A word is displayed and you select the correct definition.
  • Typing Game – A word is displayed and you type in the correct translation.
  • Matching Game – Drag-and-drop the translations that match displayed words.

You can play-and-learn all of these games for free on this ad-supported website.

Note: There were not a lot of ads on our visits to the site. However, the ads are randomly generated, so, parents AS ALWAYS should preview the site and supervise use of it.

You must register (free) to create your own lessons, save your results, and customize the activities as desired.

As the website explains, Internet Polyglot assumes that users already have some experience and knowledge of a foreign language prior to using the activities at the site. It is intended as a supplement to a foreign language program – not as the sole method for learning a language.
