Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 11/20/09

010 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!

Teaching Preservation – “From art to social studies, lessons that incorporate historic preservation go beyond typical textbook activities by teaching your students to recognize and appreciate the rich heritage that surrounds them.”

LitCharts – “the faster, downloadable alternative to Spark Notes.” You can read them online, in a pdf file or on your iphone

Coolfood kidz – fun and interesting nutrition information and building healthy eating habits.

Internet Safety – “This blog is a place to learn about internet safety, explore the myths, uncover the facts and discuss what it means to stay safe online today.”

Power Point Games - These games were created in PowerPoint.  Download the templates and modify the games to fit your curriculum needs.

These are great. I especially like the PowerPoint games. I already had the Who Wants to be a Millionaire version, but because it is not on tv much now, the students don't really appreciate it the way they used to. The extra games are great and will be fun to use.
