Web 2.0 Tools

Below is a list of free online websites that you can use with your class or to add to your lessons. All of these websites should have full functionality and not be blocked by the Seeds of Health internet filter. Please notify Kaitlyn if any websites are not functioning. Also, if there are tools that you use in your classroom that are not listed, please submit the website to Kaitlyn.

Although some of these tools do have premium accounts you can upgrade to, all descriptions tell you only what the free accounts can do.
