Library of social studies and science content

Overview

Kids Discover Online (KDO) gives teachers and students the opportunity to browse Kids Discover’s vast library of science and social studies content, photographs, activities, and interactive simulations in an individualized, organized platform. Using Kids Discover Online provides teachers with pre-designed individual lessons or entire unit plans. Students use the tool to complete individualized, level-appropriate readings or activities assigned by the teacher.

APPROACH

Teachers and students begin using Kids Discover Online by creating an account and choosing the appropriate subscription option. Once registered, teachers search for activities and reading assignments by topic and Lexile reading level. Activities and assignments are organized by singular interest topics or pre-designed unit plans. Both teachers and students can customize their search interests and queue future lessons, units, and activities.

Teachers can assign students interactive activities or reading assignments based on the student’s Lexile reading level. Students can then complete these assignments or activities at their own pace within KDO, and are free to explore other Kids Discover content based on their own interests.

PRICING

KDO offers three different pricing plans. For no cost, users can have limited access to content. For students at home, complete access to KDO costs $4 per month, billed annually. For educators in the classroom, complete access to KDO costs $12 per month, billed annually. More pricing information can be found on the Kids Discover Online website.

WHO’S USING IT

Kids Discover online is currently being used by over 50,000 students and educators.

I wanted to integrate STEM into my social studies classroom, so that when kids are learning about history and the pioneers of science, technology, engineering, and math, they are learning about those subjects simultaneously and forming natural connections.
