Our first ever Websday Web Day post is about Big Universe. Big Universe is billed as an online reading and writing community. Big Universe has a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction books that can be used on the smartboard, computer, or any device with internet access. Books can be searched by subject, curriculum area, reading level, grade level, interest age, foreign language, and much more. It also has an area where students and teachers can create ebooks using clipart or their own images. Big Universe requires a paid subscription (which Menasha school district has), or you can try it for free for 14 days.
