For December 1, 2006: Fact Monster, a great, free research, homework help, and just plain fun site from Information Please, provides loads of features targeted to students. Students will find the online dictionary, encyclopedia, maps, and homework center easy to use. The print and citation page tools make it easy to print and cite an article. Daily offerings include Today in History, Today's Birthday, Word Quiz, Spelling Bee, and In the News. There is also a weekly poll on a relevant topic of interest to kids. And there are even Fact Monster blogs, for boys or for girls, in two targeted age ranges. This will be a popular destination for students.

Fly over to CyberBee for more great Web sites, lessons, and activities to use with students.
