    This resource was matched by a member of the Brokers of Experitse standards matching team.  While the site content is geared more towards fifth grade, there are great picutres that can be used, as well as  other content that could be easily modified for a kindergarten presentation.  Also, if you've never visited the Scholastic website, it's worth spending some time there for a host of other resources in all content areas as well.
