I am all packed and ready to go to the airport for a week of workshops on the east coast this week. I start out in Boston and am hoping to be the one Cleveland Caveliers fan who is wishing them a win against the Boston Celtics to move ahead to the next round of the NBA playoffs. Yeah, I know the chances are not great, but I would love to see a Cavs win!
Anyway, the reason I am going to keep my driver waiting is that I just started reading my TeachersFirst Newsletter and I was so excited about a new website and the many websites I found when I "backed up" to the source of the suggested website. Anyway, TeachersFirst recommended a website that helped students to see the growth of animal babies into adulthood. It is called Grow Up and can be found at http://www.arkiveeducation.org/games_grow.html I took a look at it, thought it was well done and would do a lot to illustrate the growth process in animals. I then did as I advise to inquire as to the origin of the website and speculate as to what else the website might offer. I did just that. Backing up on the URL to http://www.arkiveeducation.org and then choosing Games I came to a wonderful choice of many games about the animal kingdom that would really enhance this area of science.From animal survival to designing a habitat to an egg and spawn race, your students will love these activities. I can't wait to read the rest of TeachersFirst newsletter as who knows what else I will find! But, for now, it is off to the airport!
Hope you are enjoying your Sunday, Judi
