Customizing Lesson Collections

Learning Explorer's robust library of learning objects makes creating the foundation of any lesson easy but personalizing is what makes lesson planning fun and unique for your classroom! Enhance any lesson collection with our suite of customizations tools such as uploading existing files from your computer, incorporating rich media such as images from Pixabay, adding directions and context for your instruction with 'add a page' or leveraging your favorite Google productivity tools!
