Fact Monster - free reference site and much more

Fact Monster is a free interactive website from Info Please.  It provides students with comprehensive reference materials, games, quizzes, and a lot more. 
The homework help section provides excellent resources.  You can choose a subject, skills or types of reference resources.  

Fact Monster is engaging for students from elementary through middle school.  I have worked with teachers who use it for lesson review, afterschool program activities and homework.  Fact Monster has interactive quizzes that provide instant feedback.

I have added a screen shot of the tool bar that keeps it simple with good visuals for easy searching.

Check out Fact Monster and all the various components you can use to enhance a lesson.  Share a comment about how you use it or what your students think about the site.  Sharing builds community!
