Internet without Fear! Practical Tips and Activities for the Elementary Classroom.
Offutt, Elizabeth Rhodes; Offutt, Charles R.
This book provides guidelines on how to use the Internet, discusses the educational benefits of the Internet, and includes several activities in seven subject areas for grades K-6. The book is divided into two parts: "Entering a New World" and "Integrating Internet Resources Throughout the Curriculum." The first part provides a glossary of Internet terms; explains the Internet; discusses equipment and connectivity needs; and describes three of the leading commercial online services: America Online, CompuServe, and Prodigy. The second section provides integrated Internet activities for reading; language arts; math; science; social studies; health, nutrition and physical fitness; and music, art and dance. Each entry lists suggested grade levels, activity title, Internet address (usually a Uniform Resource Locator to a World Wide Web site or instructions for a telnet), a brief description of the site, and activity procedures. Also included in Part 2 are Gopher sites, Internet groups, mailing lists, and other organizations and resources of interest to educators. (AEF)
