Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 2/25/11

tools2Here 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!

Nourish Interactive – “is your free one stop resource for fun nutrition games for kids, interactive nutrition tools and tips for parents and health educators to use to promote healthy living for the whole family.”

Own Your Space--Keep Yourself and Your Stuff Safe Online – free Digital Book for Teens by Linda McCarthy

Sugar Stacks – “Compare foods, find out where sugar is hiding, and see how much of the sweet stuff you're really eating.”

Newspaper Map – locating and reading newspapers from around the world.

Clorox Classrooms – free lesson plans; “Students play detective to uncover the mystery of hidden germs, learn how germs spread, compare the cleanliness of different surfaces and more. Once your students complete a lesson or activity, deem them members of The Clean Club, a fun way to reward good behavior.”
