Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my PLN.

I hope some of these inspire you, inform you, and even have you asking questions. Thank you for coming by and visiting!

History of Creativity
- “At The History of Creativity we believe that taking a visual overview of the history of all creative endeavours and how they are linked to world events is crucial to better understanding the world. We believe that this overview will allow better skill development in any creative skill people want to develop. The History of Creativity is a visual encyclopaedia that allows you to time travel to any time and place in the past or indeed the present.”(L:G; SA:A)

List of 168 Poetic Forms for Poets - “Check out this list of 168 poetic forms for poets that includes everything from abstract poetry and ae freislighe to villanelle and zappai—and so many more in between”(L:T; SA:LA) (L:E,M; SA:S)

Flap to the Future - a flight adaptations game

The surprising reason birds sing - a TED-ed lesson; “A brown thrasher knows a thousand songs. A wood thrush can sing two pitches at once. A mockingbird can match the sounds around it — including car alarms. These are just a few of the 4,000 species of songbirds. How do these birds learn songs? How do they know to mimic the songs of their own species? Are they born knowing how to sing? Partha P. Mitra illuminates the beautiful world of birdsong.” (L:G; SA:S)

Saving and Investing - “A unit on saving and investing for a high school class in personal finance” (L:H; SA:M,C)
