A number of online sites are set up to help students conduct research for science homework, such as Fact Monster, Discovery Education and Britannica Kids. These sites offer resources for parents, students and educators searching for science answers and homework help.
Fact Monster presents detailed information in subject areas including current events, people, sports and science. Each subject is divided into categories and subcategories. Under science, categories include biology, weather, chemistry, plants and inventions. Clicking on a category brings up multiple guides on that subject. Alternately, visitors can access the site's homework center. Citation tips and samples are provided in case students need to cite Fact Monster.
Discovery Education supplies digital media content that can be used in the classroom or for after-school homework assistance. Free homework help is available by subject area, including science. Discovery Education's science homework help page provides videos and interactive presentations covering earth, physical and life sciences. Each video includes a description of its content along with citations.
Britannica Kids lets students search its online encyclopedias and dictionaries. Another option is for visitors to browse by subject. Science is divided into categories such as physics, astronomy and technology, and subcategories such as gravitation and electricity. A free trial is available, with the option to convert to a full membership after the trial period ends.
