Welcome to the ClassBrain March newsletter. Easter
is just around the corner and there is so much
happening at ClassBrain, I almost don't know where
to start. We have exciting things happening from
math to movies to music and more. There are of
course changes happening in the State Reports
section, but I'll tell you about those in a moment.
For now... have fun exploring some of the cool new
things happening at ClassBrain, and please pass this
anyone that you know, who might be interested. Thanks!
If you haven't visited the Monuments & Memorials
section, you should take a look. There was so much
information, we couldn't put it all into State
Reports, so we had to make an entirely new section.
We have information, maps, and even some quizzes.
This area is cross-linked to the State Reports
REPORTS IS BEING REDESIGNED
We've been very busy in the State Reports section.
We're currently in the process of adding
subcategories to make information easier to find.
The new subcategories include:
Our state sections were getting much too large, and
it was getting difficult to find things. This
change will help you and your kids find your state
information much easier.
- Business & Economy
- History & Facts
- Images & Music
- Natural Resources
- State Symbols
Within State Reports we have some great new
material! Here's a sample of what you'll find:
- State Recipes - Each state has a new page
links to recipes based on foods that are either
grown or raised in the state (take
a look at California's Recipes). We've tried to
include a couple in each state that are good for
classroom cooking projects.
- State Symbols - This area is getting a major
redesign. We are assembling the most comprehensive
collection of state symbol information that you'll
find anywhere. We've completed Alabama
and the other states are in progress. You
have to see this material to believe what we've found!
- State News - We've included a new page
state that contains a daily updated newsfeed
specializing in news from that state.
- Battle Maps - Many states now have incredible
interactive Civil War battle maps courtesy of the
National Park Service's Heritage Preservation
out this one for Kentucky.
- and so much more...
