Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my Personal Learning Network (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!
Science Bob – “"Science Bob" Pflugfelder has been a fan of science since he was just six years old. Over the years, he has been exploring the scientific world with thousands of students. He also encourages parents and teachers to practice "Random Acts of Science" by trying out interactive science experiments that they can find on his site to help make science come alive;” great resource for science fair experiments or just experiments to do in the classroom
Kids in the House – “The Kids in the House Web site is a public service provided by the Office of the Clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives. Our mission is to provide educational and entertaining information about the legislative branch of the United States government to students of all age levels. Topics covered include the role of the U.S. House of Representatives, the legislative process, and House history.”
Our Courts – “free interactive civics resources;” great way to learn about the court system
The Space Place – “games, animations, projects, and fun facts about Earth, space and technology.”
Drum Set – fun interactive drums, use your mouse or the keyboard
