With families back in the fall school routine, children might be bringing home assignments and curiosity!
Edmonton Public Library offers great digital resources for students across a range of subjects - this month, we're shining a light on PebbleGo. Designed for grades K-3, PebbleGo offers updated, age-appropriate and interactive articles. The resource is free to access with your library card.
PebbleGo's social studies articles cover many topics including communities and culture, jobs, families and the environment. Each article includes a video, PDF activity sheet and read-aloud narration that highlights text so readers can follow along.
New articles featuring Canadian and North American topics have been added.
PebbleGo also offers articles on science and animals for elementary students. Topics include introductions to earth and space sciences, math, methods of making art and engineering practices. The animals section features an extensive and exploration-friendly article tree with dinosaurs, invertebrates, birds, mammals and more.
Any dino fans in the household? PebbleGo's dinosaur article tree is fun to explore.
