Five Friday Finds

As usual, finding good web resources can be 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-

Doodle For Google
Doodle for Google is a K-12 competition where students are invited to “redraw” the Google logo.  This year’s theme is centered around “What I’d like to do someday…” Registration for the current round of Doodle for Google is open until March 2!

Language-

knoword
Timed vocabulary game where you are given a definition and the first letter of a word and must determine the word.

Math-

Web 2.0 Scientific Calculator
Another online scientific calculator, I know, but it is on a very clean interface.  Better yet, you can get a widget of it to embed right in your own website, blog, or other online site.

Science-

60 Second Science Challenge
International Science Video Competition originating in Australia.  There is both a primary & secondary level, along with cash prizes.

Social Studies-

National Geographic’s Underground Railroad
National Geographic’s interactive site about the Underground Railroad; includes history of slavery, pictures and information.  Students can “be” a run-away slave, making choices on their trip north as they are presented with information and scenarios.

Have a great week!
