Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 5/7/10

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!

Learn Your Tables – great resource for students to learn their multiplication tables

America on the Move – interactive site from the Smithsonian Institute; “See how we got here. Transportation transformed America. Choose from these three interconnected routes to explore how transportation shaped our lives, landscapes, culture, and communities.”

Science posters – from NASA; free download

Sepia Town – “lets you view and share thousands of mapped historical images from around the globe”

2010 US Census – in Google Earth; youtube video
