Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 5/29/09

Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my PLN. 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!

Joey Green’s Mad Scientist Experiments – a variety of experiments using every day items

Mad Libs – a fun word game to play with students

Edible/Inedible Experiments Archive – “Try your hand at experimental science! Some experiments may be eaten before, during or after the experiment, and some should not be eaten at all! Each file lists an expected age-level to carry out the experiment, as well as safety precautions. Many of the experiments will require nothing more than a quick rummage through the kitchen cabinets.”

Think About History Game – fun trivia game about history, including video clips for clues

Stop Disasters – A disaster simulation game from the UN/ISDR (high school level)
