Cobblestone Publishing
http://cobblestonepub.com/
GRADE LEVEL: 2-9

CONTENT:
The mission of Cobblestone Publishing, publisher of educational magazines, is to provide "exceptional educational materials for young people, and for the teachers, librarians, and parents who guide them."

AESTHETICS:
This site has a very basic layout with photographs and a few appropriate graphics.

ORGANIZATION:
The main page has a menu on the left. Internal pages have topics displayed as links, and information for each subject is presented using lists of links.

REVIEW:
Although the Cobblestone Publishing Company site features information about its educational publications, it also offers some free-standing resources for teachers and librarians. The Kids page presents activities such as Making Corn Grow, ABCs on the Double, and Rivers of the World; quizzes on U.S. and world history; free articles and contests; and ideas for having your work published at Cobblestone. Teachers will find guides for using the publications in the classroom, suggestions for teaching a wide variety of topics that include links to related sites, and reading skills and comprehension questions. Included are correlations to Massachusetts, Texas, and California social studies curriculum standards.
