Why Interactive Learning is Beneficial to Students

Interactive websites are more easy to find these days. The creators of these sites know that they will engage their visitors more by providing activities that require or encourage interaction. Fortunately, most children learn this way. Children remember the things they actually take part in and do themselves. This reminds me of the quote Benjamin Franklin once said, "Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn."

Interactive science websites for kids are very topic specific. Below, I have found and used several websites with students. The sites have proven to be great resources for introducing topics, reinforcing concepts, reteaching them, and providing enrichment. Depending on the state in which you live, the curriculum may differ by grade level. But the topics below are likely covered during some period of time.

      Thanks eHealer! I appreciate your feedback. Literatelibran, I will add recommended age groups/grade levels. I meant to do that in the first place - thanks for reminding me.
