Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 10/29/21

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!

Build a Jack O’ Lantern - “A few years ago I created my "Build a Jack-O-Lantern" activity for Google Slides. It was a giant hit with students as it let them be creative while improving their writing skills and tech skills. With Fall here once again, I decided to revisit this favorite activity and add a new twist to it. In the years since I first created this project, we now have an amazing new tool in the Chrome Web Extension called Mote.” (L:T;SA:A)

Happy Halloween - videos from the SciShow Kids (L:E;SA:S)

Math vs. Zombies - fun math games for elementary school students (L:E;SA:M)
