About a week ago, DK has launched an exciting new online learning resource for kids, parents, teachers and educators of all kinds. Personally, I think it is a fabulous website for homeschoolers. The site is called DKfindout and between you and I, I think the name fits perfectly. This website took nearly two years in the making. DKfindout is a global education website that brings together DK's unrivalled collection of amazing images and expertly researched text to create a safe - and useful - online learning environment! It caters to visual learners of all ages – and is perfect to learn more without the kids realizing… This amazing free website allows people to create their own journey of discovery and learn remarkable facts along the way.
The best part is that it is accessible on all devices, iPad, phone, laptop and computer! So no matter where you are, you can easily swing by DKfindout and learn (assuming that you are in a free wifi area or you have coverage on your device).
When you get to the website you will see this screen. You can either select a theme or type in what you are looking for.
Further down the page, you can go to videos, answer questions on quizzes, what galleries of photos, discover what’s new on the site, learn fun facts and even have your own folder of stuff to read about.
Since we are going to study China with our coop at the end of March, I thought it would be interesting to do a search on China. Here’s the different subjects we can explore on China on this website – The Great Wall today, Kingdom of Ancient China, more Chinese inventions, Ancient China, The Great Wall of China, Chinese printing, more Chinese pottery, Chinese farming, Chinese trade, what the Chinese traded, the First Emperor, Chinese pottery, the Terra-cotta Army, Chinese junk, Confucius, Chinese writing, Chinese paper-making, Chinese Dress, Chinese family life, Chinese inventions, giant panda, and Chinese medicine. The search also brought up Richard Nixon, measuring earthquakes, parts of a flower, what is a fish?, what is a mammal? and leaves. I suspect that China is mentioned in these articles.
Below is an example of my search on China – more specifically how the Great Wall of China was built. On the image, you can see labels which allows the person navigating the site to discover more about specific words related to the search.
I am very impressed with this site and I think it is a wonderful site to explore with your kids when studying a specific theme. I highly recommend DKfindout to anyone who love to learn.
