Our AI consultant told me about a student that used to hate social studies. He told her about this site and that he's having fun "playing" the online activities! I created an account and found a great activity for 4th grade social studies learning facts about the 50 states. The activities are free and a low cost subscription gives access to more features like Teacher Guides and Progress Reports. You can easily find activities by grade - Pre-K through 6th and by subject area. Families can subscribe for $5.95 per month or $49.95 a year. Family subscriptions include up to six accounts. Classroom subscriptions are $199 a year and includes up to 34 members.

The sites content can be categorized into five areas: fun learning, open-ended creative activities that can be saved, user-generated content areas, educational videos, and a multi-player virtual world. The site states that activities are based on educational standards. The link is added in the Resources section of this blog.

I too think it's a neat website for elementary school games... especially the reward system for styling your beehive! how difficult is it to set up user accounts for an entire classroom?
