ELA

Mathematics

Free digital version of base ten blocks, set up in a practice game.  Students drag blocks onto the paper to hit a target number.  They progress to the next number from the existing number.  Here's a blog post with some ideas for applications in the classroom.

Science

"Explore how your body converts the chemical energy of glucose into the chemical energy of ATP."  This does require a download.

Social Studies

Uses Google maps to let the user (student) select a point than get the latitude and longitude of the point.  The point can be selected by clicking on the map (zooming for accuracy), dragging a marker or by entering the address.  In addition to map reading skills, it could also be used in math for look at trends/patterns and predicting for other areas.
