You can practice using Diigo to highlight and annotate websites relating to your upcoming unit on "Lending a Hand".  Below is a list of organizations last year's Grade 5 students collected.

1)  Sign in to Diigo
2)  If you have forgotten your username and/or password, here is a link to a Google Doc (though note you will have to log into your UWCSEA "gapps" account in order to read it).


This is a link to the Grade 5 (2010-2011) Diigo Group.  If you find new websites to add, remember to share it with the group and to tag them with "g5_help".
