    Study Web

    GRADE LEVEL:   All Ages; Secular

    Comments:  Here is what Education World says about this great site--"This site is exactly what it says it is -- a place for anyone doing research to find the information they need as easily as possible.   The categories are sorted according to the approximate appropriate grade level which makes them valuable tools for teachers looking for lesson plan and curriculum ideas.   The information for each topic also notes the presence of downloadable or printable images for use as visual aids of school reports or projects.   The variety of subjects and categories should allow most users to narrow in on a topic for a report,  find background material for a story,  begin research for a paper or just increase their knowledge of a particular topic."
