You will find sections for Kids, Timelines, eBooks, the Info Finder, and a portal entirely in Spanish.
Kids have their very own portal on World Book, which they can access on desktops, laptops, and mobile devices.
They can explore maps, play games, read about important people, lookup science projects, compare animals, and browse pictures and videos.
Older students might be interested in World Book's Timeline feature.
When preparing for a history test, print out a timeline to help keep facts straight so that you will be able to ace your exam.
Scroll in for a compact view, or scroll out to see hundreds of years all at once. You can also change the setting to see the timelines in a list view.
And, the timelines are customizable because you can even add your own events.
World Book online has a great number of eBooks available.
No downloading required- just click for full-text and beautiful color photographs. Grade-level suggestions are included.
