ELM Interactives for Students is a collection of instructional activities on the Electronic Library for Minnesota (ELM) databases created by librarians in the Reference Outreach and Instruction unit of Minitex utilizing the Student Interactives hosted on the ReadWriteThink site and provided by the International Reading Association, National Council of Teachers of English, and the Verizon Foundation's Thinkfinity. Each set of ELM instructional activities and Student Interactives are organized by activity and grade level and intended to be teacher initiated and guided. However, any of the activities can be modified to fit any grade, student, or assignment.

These instructional activities can be viewed and used on-demand, whenever they're needed.
