Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 12/10/10

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!

Life Is – from BBC, “we hope you’ll be as inspired by the natural world around you as we are.
The world is an amazing place full of stories, beauty and natural wonder and we’re
passionate about telling stories that bring you closer to it.”

Trailfire – make a trail of webpages for students to follow

Simple Booklet – “ is a cloud based self-publishing platform. It is the simplest way to create and publish your own virtual brochures, flyers, flashcards, booklets, pamphlets, manuals, guides, and flipbooks across the web.” Free

Hey LHS Kids! – great science activities for kids

The Luckiest Nut in the World – great 8 min. video explaining free trade through a peanut; great use of global trade vocabulary.
