Five Friday Finds

Often, finding good web resources are the hardest part of the job for an educator.  With all the demands on a teacher's time, who has time to spend searching?  If this is you, here are some resources you may found useful.  Please feel free to share with others

General-
The goal of Dulcinea is to help students (and others) more effectively search the Internet for credible information.  There are 8 different products-all free, including one for educators.

ELA-
Free Children’s Audio Books: http://www.booksshouldbefree.com/genre/Children
Many classic children’s books available in iTunes (podcast) or mp3 format.  I saw many that I know are read in schools. (Make sure to skip past the audible.com ads down to the free downloads)

Math-
Plus Magazine…living mathematics: http://plus.maths.org/content/
Plus is an internet magazine which aims to introduce readers to the beauty and the practical applications of mathematics.”

Science-
“Explore the stars and planets through your web browser.”

Social Studies-
“A new way to look at the world;” the user picks a subject (such as population, migrants, literacy, mortality, religion…) and all world countries are resized to their % of the world total for that subject.   A very visual graphic for students.
