    Broken URL

    Looks like it could be a handy resource, unfortunately the link is broken. Very frustrating!

    Hello Alice,

    Thanks for your feedback. We have checked and this PC-only resource is working but you will need Adobe Flash plug-in installed to your browser. Please contact our Customer Support if you experience difficulties.

    Best Wishes,

    Hannah, Scholastic Resource Bank

    Great Resource

    Helps to set the scene, with superb sound effects and opportunities for shared reading.
    We watched this and each group had to make notes on each section for recount writing. Thank you!
