Discovery Education Review

One of the few games on Discovery Education is Fishy Fractions. It is a good game for younger children learning about Fractions. The game involves matching fractions from the world problem to a picture or vice versa. It would not work well for older grades who have worked with fractions before. The Grades I see it to work best for is Gr- 4 to 6 and maybe 7.

A video I have chosen to do a review on is Canada and WWI. It is a half hour video on Canada's role in WWI. It shows how Canada even as a young nation could put men onto the battlefield and help turn the course of the war. Canada helped establish herself as a nation, so this video is a good way of showing Canada getting her independence. The class it can work best with is Social while learning about Canada's independence.
