Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 11/07/08

Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found 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!

Making Science Fun - Science Experiments – “This hands-on science library represents Steve's most requested science experiments from his weekly television appearances and live presentations throughout the country. Just search for an easy science projectt idea or browse the entire library of experiments.”

Cartoons for the Classroom – Great editorial cartoons for you to use in the classroom along with lessons for teachers to use.

Funschool – fun educational games for kids.

Ithryv - "dedicated to providing a world-class platform to both serve financial institutions with a great new product, and help parents and children learn about handling money. We knew the least we could do is to apply our technology skills to upgrading the current transaction only online banking systems with a 2.0 version that can deliver needed skills and knowledge at the point that people deal with money. "

Worldmapper – “a collection of world maps, where territories are re-sized on each map according to the subject of interest.” Some are available as PDF posters.
