I've been working on teaching schools to get book donations from their school communities.
Over the last year, my son's and I have been successful in collecting 13,000 books. About 10,000 came from our own collection efforts from non-profit organizations.
Once collected, we organize the books between fiction, non-fiction, chapter books, new reader... The teachers bring the students through the display area to select a book that they may take home and keep.
Create interactive and informative educational timelinesin an extremely easy manner. Students will love being given the option of creating a timeline. Use Timerime for history, art, science, social studies or just about any subject in which they are required to understand the time frame at which events occurred.
