Erasing the line between homework support and fun exploration, The World Almanac® for Kids includes exclusive online-only material as well as content from award-winning Chelsea House and Facts On File sets and series. Each subject area provides resources for homework, reports, and projects, and kids can explore age-appropriate topics while developing online research skills with a trusted content source.
The Teacher Support drop-down menu at the top of the home page provides easy access to a treasure trove of content that will help educators get the most out of using the database in class, including comprehensive lesson plans—specially created by our editors—for selected modules, including Ancient Civilizations, Animals, Our Planet Earth, Our Solar System, Countries of the World, The 50 States, Canadian Provinces, and U.S. Presidents. Teachers will also find science diagrams, maps, and graphic organizers that help with any lesson in the Teacher Support drop-down menu. The top bar also features a link to accessible Homework Help articles for students, and the Resources drop-down menu puts videos, interactives, science projects, Fun Facts articles, maps, flags, and an interactive Trivia Challenge game right at your fingertips.
In addition, users can find a wide range of interactives on selected topics, including more than 20 multiple-choice “Test Your Knowledge” quizzes, a fun way for students to practice what they’ve learned in core areas such as American History, U.S. Government, Biomes, Our Planet Earth, Human Body, Plants, and Ancient Civilizations. Students can take these quizzes again and again to reinforce the subject matter and identify any areas that need more practice. Also, to reinforce the content and vocabulary taught in class, students can use the more than 40 interactive worksheets that were specially created to support the STEM content in this database. Topics include Animals, Human Body, Our Planet Earth, Plants, and Our Solar System. Students can use the drag-and-drop functionality to label diagrams, match words, and fill in the blanks.
