PBS LearningMedia has over 120,000 resources and an active community where teachers use and share digital media, lesson plans and videos to use in the classroom. Part of being a PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovator is to share the resources created by the PBS LearningMedia community.
If you are unfamiliar with the LearningMedia digital community, this description of the resources and community describes it best:
PBS LearningMedia is America’s largest classroom, providing over 120,000 digital resources to help teachers bring classroom lessons to life for students in pre-K through 12th grade.
This April PBS LearningMedia is offering a variety of digital resources to supplement upcoming lesson plans and amplify timely discussions in the classroom.
National Library Week (April 9-15): Encourage students to enjoy the library with this Arthur activity, introducing them to the many resources awaiting them at the library.
· Earth Day (April 22): Teach students to cherish our planet and recognize how to protect it this Earth Day.
