Scoop.it

Scoop.it is a great site to publish a magazine of links on various topics.  It's free for the first 5 scoops and there is a 15 day trial if you want more scoops.  I signed up for the teacher subscription and have been able to add 20 scoops.  I used the students' Social Studies fair topics and now 20 students have a selection of sites to use for their research.  Check that out by clicking on the TAEP Social Studies Fair site.  My 6th graders seemed to love the format and I heard sounds of approval throughout the room when they accessed their Scoop.it yesterday! 

Social Studies Fair

We're working on our Social Studies Fair Projects this month and I am thinking students around the country are busy doing the same thing.  Click the title to check out the site I put together for our school.
