Thinking about the students you work with, name at least two features of The World Almanac for Kids or Kids Elementary that will most appeal to them.

I think the videos and interactive games and puzzles will most appeal to students. It is helpful for students to have a visual and audio to accompany the articles to help with comprehension. The intearctive games and puzzles are a great way to reinfoce and assess students' knowlege in a fun and engaging way. 

Which feature of The World Almanac for Kids or Kids Elementary most appeals to you as a teacher? 

I have two - I love that I can search by standard and that they are a variety of teaching materials on each topic that are ready to print or digitally assign to students.

Think of a time when you used a website or digital instruction program in your instruction. What did you like about using the digital resource? How was it different than using other resources in your teaching

I like using digital resources for students to conduct research because they're usually easy to navigate and can accomodate multiple learning styles so learning is more personalized for each student. Digital resources that are interactive help students engage more with their content.
