Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 06/20/08

Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found interesting this week. As a teacher, I feel we have to keep up to date concerning research in our field and current issues in the education system. I hope some of these inspire you, inform you, and even have you asking questions. Thank you for coming by and visiting!

Cybersmart – teaches about cyber safety with activities for all levels including lesson plans and activity sheets.

I Know That – for levels preK – 6th grade; does require registration but lots of neat interactive learning games

ARKive Education – “ARKive Education is a free-to-use, multi-media resource bank for teachers and other educators. Making use of the stunning imagery available at the award-winning ARKive website, ARKive Education provides downloadable, ready to use modules on a wide range of curriculum topics, suitable for geography, biology, environmental education and citizenship lessons. ARKive ( is the world's centralised library of films and photographs of the world's endangered species - freely accessible to all online for private research and internal educational purposes.”

Thinking Blocks – “Thinking Blocks is an engaging, interactive math tool developed by classroom teachers to help students learn how to solve multistep word problems.”

Superfactory – virtual factory tours (I love factory tours and this is the next best thing!)
