If your students or homeschoolers love learning about the world, then they will love OLogy! OLogy is an interactive website created by the American Museum of Natural History that provides users with information about topics such as biology, human cultures, and Earth & space.
Users can simply click the menu button and choose a topic they want to explore. Each topic features videos, games, stories, hands-on activities, and quizzes. Choose any of the learning activities to learn more about the topic. For example, if your learner is interested in marine biology, they can read a story about a whale, learn about what they can do to protect the oceans, watch a video about colors in nature, and play a game that takes them to the bottom of the ocean. The content is geared toward K-5th graders.
There is also a section for educators that breaks down each of the hands-on activities by grade level. OLogy has a partnership with ReadWorks, so this section features articles about science topics that are paired with vocabulary lessons and formative assessments for grades 2-12. Educators can click on the article for information about its intended grade level, word count, Lexile level, and ELA standards. Students will need to sign up and log in to access the articles.
