Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 06/27/08

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!

Math Playground is an an action-packed site for elementary and middle school students. They practice math skills, play a logic game and have fun!

Interactives - "Interactives" provides educators and students with strategies, content, and activities that can enhance and improve students' skills in a variety of curricular areas.” There were interactive in Math, Science, Language and History for all different grade levels.

Photosynth: “Photosynth uses hundreds of standard digital camera images to construct a three-dimensional view of an environment or "synth". These synths can be explored much like a video game, allowing you to explore, zoom into tiny details, and see where the photographer was standing (or flying) when they took the pictures.”

Flash Card Maker – easy to make flash cards for math or words.

PestWorld for Kids – explore the world of pests; includes lesson plans, classroom resources, and learning games.

Checked out the interactives - good stuff for World History.

And, the flashcards link would be great for my ELL kids with either History or Biology vocabulary.

As usual, great stuff!

Thank you. :-)
