PEORIA, Ill -- During the summer we take the time to check in with our One Class at a Time winners.

This month we are revisiting Ms. Hahn from Hines Elementary School.

A student's grandmother nominated Ms. Hahn for the grant so she could buy a subscription to "Discovery Education."

The program is an online resource to videos and information to supplement science and social studies classes.

And the best part is the whole school will be able to use it.

"Discovery Education made learning exciting," said Ms. Hahn. "It's not sit and read a book and write about a state. This is the technology age and Discovery Education opened up worlds to the kids they wouldn't have without this grant."

Ms. Hahn's fourth graders were even able to download videos for their "state" reports and incorporate them right into their PowerPoint presentations.
