Website Lists From the AVA Center
How We Evaluate Websites:
Excellent - An excellent site with good information, graphics, links, and educational value. Usually includes lesson plans. Usually includes multiple sections and topics.
Very Good - Almost as good as Excellent but not quite, maybe some of the links are missing or there aren't enough of them. Maybe there are fewer graphics or it's just a smaller site. Maybe there is just less information or there are no lesson plans or educational sections.
Good - Frequently a site with a single type of information or topic such as a crossword puzzle or game. Still has good value as an information or a research site for students or teachers. Does not contain lesson plans or those that are there are brief.
Important: Don't assume that the only valuable sites are rated Excellent. A "Good" site may be just what you need.
Website lists are designed to be used by teachers and students in grades K-12 although many are not limited to those grade levels. Where possible, we note appropriate grade levels.
A Note About Webquests - What they are - How they work - How to create one
Many lesson plans,
classroom activities and webquests are easily adaptable
to your location or other grade levels.
