     Interactive websites are websites that can be manipulated for an educational purpose. These websites usually provide learning games and activities for a variety of age groups. Each grade level has specific activities that are tailored for their learning. These websites are another great way to bring reality into the classroom because students are working hands-on with activities that directly relate to their learning.

     Another example of a popular interactive website that could be used for a fifth grade class is "MrNussbaum.com." In fifth grade, the Social Studies standards show that students are required to learn different qualities about the United State of America. This website provides multiple games, maps, and slideshows to help students practice finding the locations of the states and their capitals. This website is applicable to pre-Kindergarten all the way to sixth grade classrooms, each level and subject matter having their own materials.
