Great interactive elements!
As a preservice teacher, this was an excellent resource to help me build my background knowledge on the interdependence of life. This resource was very interactive. There were many questions throughout the chapter that reinforced key concepts that we were reading about and asked me to apply the knowledge I learned to new situations. There were also many green vocabulary words in the chapter, and I was able to click on them to read the definition. Having easy access to these definitions really helped me better understand the material, and I didn’t have to leave the website to look them up. I also liked how many interactive pictures this book had. There would be pictures of habitats and I could click on the picture to search for abiotic and biotic factors. Being able to actively engage in this material really helped me understand these concepts better, and it definitely translated over well to the lesson I taught my 2nd graders. I will definitely be using this resource again in the future!
