ELL Literacy with NASA: AMELIA THE PIGEON
Solid interactive site that can be utilized in a number of ways. I have written an assignment that teaches to the ELL demographic. The sites theme is terrestrial physics. But it does have an appeal to younger students. Teacher's material section is very helpful as well.

I just shared this site with a group of teachers in my district. They are using 3M interactive boards.

My students enjoyed the story of Amelia the Pigeon and learning about echo location.
There were no difficulties or problems in navigating this site.
