Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 10/29/10

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!

WordStash – “is half vocabulary builder, half dictionary, and full awesome!”

Worldmapper – “ is a collection of world maps, where territories are re-sized on each map according to the subject of interest.There are now nearly 700 maps. Maps 1-366 are also available as PDF posters;” free

Show World – “SELECT a subject from the top menu and watch the countries on the map change their size. Instead of land mass, the size of each country will represent the data for that subject --both its share of the total and absolute value.”

Got Brainy – gives words, images, and sentences. Students will enjoy the images.

Timetoast Timelines – free, make your own timelines
