LightBox books have lit up the Library and Science Curriculum at Brayton

Last spring, Brayton School Media Specialist, Courtney Kaczynski, wrote a grant for ten interactive LightBox books to be used in conjunction with the 5th grade science curriculum.  All 5th grade students will have access to digital versions of ten different nonfiction titles on various science topics. The students are reading and exploring thru the Lightbox digital interactive books on the Chrome books that each 5th grade student just received. Each Lightbox title includes video clips, audio of text, weblinks, activities, slideshows, quizzes, links to Google maps,, and curriculum resources. One student shared he is enjoying this new resource because "there are so many options and many of the photos in the book turn into videos". These interactive books are allowing the students to dig so much deeper into science.

Together, we can make possible a reality
