Why Students Love PebbleGo
How I Use PebbleGo
PebbleGo is one of the research tools our 2nd -grade students use for the “Barrow Peace Prize” project at our school. The project begins with each student selecting one of six nominees from civil rights history to research. They then create a persuasive video essay as well as a watercolor painting showing why their chosen nominee best displays the qualities of peace.
Our campus is a dual-language school in which pre-K–5 have two classes that teach in both English and Spanish. The teachers use PebbleGo to bridge the gap between these two languages by using the read aloud feature and using the PebbleGo Animales database. Even non-dual-language teachers use this feature when working with ELL/ESL students in their classrooms.
PebbleGo is usually the first platform students at my school use to learn about how to research. Students love PebbleGo because it is so friendly and easy to use! It is easy to navigate for our youngest students because of the amazing photographs and the voice that reads the topics. They really love the articles with videos and sounds.

At Calvert County Schools, they are committed to providing equitable learning opportunities to all students to foster success and independence. This commitment starts with their youngest students, so it is imperative for the district to have the resources needed to support this commitment. Prior to PebbleGo, Calvert County Schools had other print and online nonfiction and database resources.
