Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 11/06/2020

Here 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!

Rabbids Coding - "Designed for kids 7 and older, the app introduces the concepts of sequential programming, loops and conditions." (L:G; S:C)

History Explorer - "Thank you for using Smithsonian's History Explorer! This page is designed to help you navigate the site and to provide you with additional teaching supports through our primary source guide, poster, blog posts, and information about the Museum's teacher professional development opportunities."

Free Play Music - free music (L:G; S:A)

Camera and Locomotive - Trains bridged considerable distances with great speed. Photographs brought earlier events and far-off places to life for their viewers. Combining maps and pictures from the Library of Congress collections can deepen appreciation for the fascinating connections between the two technologies as both came into maturity during the race to construct a railroad to the Pacific in the years 1863–69. (L:G; S:A)

Why Do Leaves Change Colors in the Fall? - Autumn means leaves are turning different shades of red, orange, and yellow and falling to the ground. But why? Jessi takes you deep inside a leaf to explain! (L:E; S:S)
