This week was our fall break, but not a break from finding some terrific educational resources. Below are the best of “new to me” sites that I have saved for next week when our studies resume. It’s my hope that you can use these too!
Children’s activities and crafts and more (warning – this site offers so much you will need to make sure you have a lot of time to spend browsing around) http://krokotak.com/en/
Thousands of lesson plans and worksheets http://lessonplancentral.com/
Health and science resources for all grade levels http://classroom.kidshealth.org/
Plants, animals, fungi, ecology, geology, and more http://www.backyardnature.net/index.html
Fun poetry resources http://www.poetryteachers.com/index.html
Great education articles from NSA’s weekly newsletter including “Strategies That Motivate All Students to Participate”, “Art Therapy Exercises”, and ” Childhood Damaged by Over-testing” http://us5.campaign-archive2.com/?u=8fb495371ca5be23e1601ecc0&id=a2a873085d&e=3bba501884
Have a great weekend!
