Schools Online
GRADE LEVEL: K-12, Professional

Part of the Urban Programs Resource Network at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Schools Online is a collection of interactive curriculum materials for a broad section of the K-12 population.

Small, quick-loading graphics provide color to the simple layout.

Visitors can link to each set of curriculum materials from the front page of the site, making navigation effortless.

Walk in My Shoes will give students an appreciation of what it means to grow old. Other themes include Character Education; Incubation and Embryology; Natural Resources, the Environment, and Ecosystems; Sports and Nutrition; and Apples & More, a collection of cross-curricular activities about apples.
