Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 4/1/11

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!

QuizGeo – “allows you to create and play quizzes based on geography using Google Maps. This can include anything from locating all of the countries in the world to locating all of the playground equipment at your local park or school. Since you place the questions on the map you can decide how large of an area your quiz will encompass.”

Phrays – “A game in which each player tries to write a sentence best illustrating the meaning of the word of the day.”

Icebreaker Tags – design your own name tags including an icebreaker question. You can do one individually for yourself or make tags for an event

Chemistry Games – “These eight online games teach you the chemical elements, periodic table, and more.”

Toasted Cheese – Writing prompts on a monthly calendar
