Online Resources

The DC-G School District, along with the Heartland Area Education Agency, provide students with several online resources for school research projects and personal use.

A few of their offerings are highlighted below:

Britannica Online allows the user to search grade level-appropriate reference articles, journals, and magazines, as well as the web’s best sites, multimedia, and curriculum content.

Culture Grams contains concise, reliable, and up-to-date reports on more than 200 countries, every U.S. state, and all 13 Canadian provinces and territories. Features include timelines, historical content, famous people, photographs, interviews, and more.

NetTrekker is a starting point for your online searching. Why go to Google and take a chance on sites that may not be valid and reliable--not to mention too numerous to count--when you could start with netTrekker? Students can search science, social studies, language arts, math, technology, world languages, health/physical education, philosophy/religion, career education, and current events. 

AP Images features Associated Press images that students may use copyright permission. Images are available for events, places, and people from the previous 12 months in areas like international news, U.S. news, financial news, and sports. Other sections include featured and showcase images.

A periodical database designed for students in junior high and middle school, InfoTrac now includes over 250 full-text titles. InfoTrac features access to a variety of indexed and full-text magazines, newspapers, and reference books for information on current events, the arts, science, popular culture, health, people, government, history, sports, and more.
