Online Speech and Language Activties

Here are some online activities that are ready made for using in your speech and language sessions.   Students can also go online at home to review what they have done in class.

Search Engines for Kids:

I use these all of the time to reinforce vocabulary for units my students are working on in the classroom or to look up information "on the spot" as it becomes necessary.  I've had students discover what a buffalo is, see a real time video of Old Faithful, discover a sequence picture story about how fossils are formed, and take a virtual tour of the zoo.  The possibilities are endless!
