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 - Free Online OCR
Free service that allows you to convert scanned documents, screenshots & photos into editable and searchable text.  Not 100% accurate on the screenshots I tried, but accurate enough I’ll be using it instead of re-typing information!

Language - Random Logline Generator

Generates random loglines/writing prompts.  I would not put this up for students as some that I generated I would not consider appropriate, especially for younger students.  But it does give some interesting & thought-provoking prompts!

Math - K-12 Mathematics Resources for Teachers & Students
Many of these resources/lessons are about showing multiple content-based teaching strategies for solving math problems.  Make sure to try them out before trying to use them in your classrooms!

Science - Interactive Simulations
Lots of interactive simulations from the University of Colorado at Boulder.

Social Studies - If It Were My Home
“If you were not born in the country you were, what would your life be like?” Use this site to get general facts about countries, compare 2 countries side by side, & see the visualization of a disaster on the world map.
