Kidport Home Page Menu

remote control for navigation

If you haven't gone through the "About Kidport" section, we suggest you start there. About Kidport will give you a good overview of the key concepts, including Think-and-Learn, workbook materials, Reference Library materials, and projects.

Kidport content is organized by grade. Simply select the grade you wish and you'll be taken to the Grade-Level Home Page. You can also use the remote control to access the Think-and-Learn Site Map and the Reference Library Home Page. Follow along to the next graphic to examine the grade-level home pages.

To the right of the remote control, you'll find other menu items, such as the Kidport Store.

Grade-Level Home Page Menu

grade-level navigation bar

Every Grade-Level Home Page features a subject menu. From this menu you can select individual subject workbook material (i.e., math, science, social studies, language arts and creative arts). You can also go directly to the Reference Library materials for that grade. You can see all of the Reference Library content by accessing it from the Kidport Home Page.

Below the subject icons is the Think-and-Learn button which takes you to the Think-and-Learn materials for that grade. You can also see all of the Think-and-Learn modules for K-8 by selecting that button from the Kidport Home Page remote control.

Educational Content Level

Once you have selected a topic from the Grade-Level Main Page you will find specific interactive education pages, including workbook modules, Think-and-Learn modules and reference library modules. Note that many of the interactive education modules require the Shockwave plugin. If you don't have it, just click on the Shockwave button on the Kidport Home Page and you can download Shockwave free from the Macromedia web site.

For your convenience, the title bar at the top of each page includes a menu of commonly used pages. You can also click on sections of the title to navigate backwards. For example, if you are looking at a Grade 1, Mathematics, Counting activity, clicking on mathematics in the title takes you back to the Grade 1 math index; clicking on Grade 1 in the title takes you back to the Grade 1 subject index; and clicking on the Kidport Logo takes you back to the Kidport Home Page.
