Did you know that PebbleGo
has Lesson Plans and Reproducibles? Be sure to check out the Share What You Know section--this would be a fun thing for young students to do with the Starboard.
To get to the Share What You Know section, go to an animal's information page, and there is a link on the left in a purple bubble. Check it out! (Remember: username/password is the same as for all our other library databases--it's written in huge letters on the library wall!)
