K-8 Kids' Place

Developed by Houghton Mifflin, this site contains a number of helpful online educational, interactive materials for students from kindergarten to 8th grade. The Web site is divided into three main sections: School Books, Games, and Brain Power. In School Books, students have the ability to pick from a number of activities ranging from spelling quizzes, mathematic skills reviews, and reading activities for grades 1 through 6. Several of the activity areas here are also available in Spanish. The Brain Power section contains a number of activities designed to challenge and hone the analytic and problem-solving abilities of young people. The questions are geared for students in grades 3 through 8, and an archive containing the previous three week's questions is available for perusal. The Games section features four different activities, including Fake Out! -- where students guess the definition of a word and also have the ability to submit their own fake definitions. Additionally, Houghton Mifflin has placed a statement online regarding its commitment to protecting the privacy of children using the site. [KMG]
