Presidents Day and Fraboom!

Have you tried the website called Fraboom?  It calls itself an online children's museum.

The website has many parts to it, but I wanted to share the Presidents exhibit with you.  Click on President Kennedy to go this part of the site.

Here, students can learn about different Presidents, and by finding the interactive elements of the Oval Office, learn different details about his life and Presidency.  There is also a neat little replica of the White House where students can get an idea of what it looks like.

There is another part of the site, called Fraboom TV, and on  that section, students can watch short videos that cover everything from how to draw a cartoon mouth to how a bill becomes a law.  Kids I think will love  it, and I like that it offers me a new way to present some of my material. 

 Fraboom is a free website, but it does offer a $5.99 per month membership where you gain access to more of the site's elements.  I found the free site and its components to be enough to keep me busy for a  while!

Fraboom has live drawing classes which are incredible. The premise of the teachers are that they each are cartoon characters come to life. The characters interact with your students live via a chat box and teach them cartoon drawing skills. If you write them, they may give you a free code so that you can log in with your class. You can find and like them on Facebook where they advertised teh teacher special for a bit.
