40 Maps They Didn’t Teach You In School By the time we graduate high school, we learn that they never taught us the most exciting things there. Sure, you might be able to name the European countries or point New York on the map, but does that give you a real understanding of how the world functions? We have gathered a tremendous and informative selection of infographic maps that they should’ve shown us at school to fill this gap. Every single one of these cool maps reveals different fun and interesting facts, which can actually help you draw some pretty interesting conclusions. What makes infographic world maps so engaging is how easy it becomes to conceive graphically presented information. Without further ado, we invite you to learn things like the most popular sports in different countries, who has the biggest breasts, the red hair map of Europe, the world’s most consumed alcoholic beverages, or which brands dominate in various states of the USA in these funny world maps.

Riusuke Fukahori Paints Three-Dimensional Goldfish Embedded in Layers of Resin First: watch the video. Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori paints three-dimensional goldfish using a complex process of poured resin. The fish are painted meticulously, layer by layer, the sandwiched slices revealing slightly more about each creature, similar to the function of a 3D printer. I really enjoy the rich depth of the pieces and the optical illusion aspect, it’s such an odd process that results in something that’s both a painting and sculptural. Make Your Own Board Game | the podunk librarian For this event, patrons could personalize Clue or Monopoly, or use a blank template to make their own rules. For an example, I made a library version of Clue with our staff as suspects and used our library rooms (children's room, genealogy room, study room, etc). The weapons were a book, a book cart, the bookmobile, a stapler, a vacuum, and a scanner. There were 4 different options they could choose from. I had dice and game pieces to give away, both of which you can find plenty of (for cheap!) on Amazon. You can kind of see the penguin game piece I made in this picture: I had the boards printed out on regular paper, with a piece of cardboard measured out to back them. The Clue and Monopoly games had specific cards that needed to go with them, so I had blank templates printed out on cardstock, ready to be filled in. For the totally DIY templates, I had several blank cards that could be used with your game, if you so chose. I included that list with the DIY kit.

Man: Well, no, I'm English actually, but, you know, it's all, like, the same thing, isn't it? Woman: Not exactly. Man: Go on! Woman: No, it is not! Man: Sorry, Britain I mean. Woman: Britain is not England! Man: Well, yeah, I know that. Man: Yeah, it is – the UK, the United Kingdom. Woman: The United Kingdom is Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Man: Oh, I see, but we're all, like, the same nation, aren't we? Woman: Not really. Man: Oh, I get it! Woman: Great Britain is a geographical term – it's a big island with Scotland, England and Wales on it. Man: All right, but we all have the same prime minister, don't we? Woman: Yes, and the same head of state. Man: The Queen! Woman: Exactly. Man: And the same government? Woman: Well, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have their own local parliaments. Man: Oh. Woman: It's complicated. Man: Yeah, I can see that.

papier-mache easter eggs For Easter I made papier-mache polka dotted eggs. I created them using small water balloons and tissue paper then I filled them with candy and toys and sealed them shut. The egg can hold a surprising amount of candy and the tissue paper seems delicate making for a delightfully heavy and yet fragile object, much like real egg. Also like a real egg you have to break the shell to get at what’s inside. I like things you have to destroy to open. You’ll need: water balloons (they make the egg-iest shape)white tissue paper (one sheet will make about three eggs)colorful tissue paper (one sheet will make many eggs, so you don’t need much)a 3/4 inch hole puncha paint brush you don’t care much aboutliquid laundry starcha sturdy shot glass to hold your egg while you’re working with ita way to hang the balloons to dryenough time to let these dry overnight, and a few hours to let them dry after filling and sealing them (you’ve been warned) Note: I tried a few variations on the starch. Why the loop?

27 Ideas For Students Who Finish Their Work Early - 27 Ideas For Students Who Finish Their Work Early by TeachThought Staff How to respond when students finish their work early is a classic teacher challenge. Most of it boils down to lesson design–creating learning opportunities where students are naturally funneled toward extending, improving, and sharing their work so that ‘stopping points’ are more of a matter of scheduling than learning itself. The following infographic via Mia MacMeekin provides some ideas for how to handle early finishers in the classroom. 1. TeachThought addendum: Given the right access to the right materials (a book, app, collaboration, audience, etc.), this could be a default/bare minimum ‘what to do if you finish early’ strategy 2. 3. 4.

10 Invaluable Back To School Ideas For ELT Teachers | OUP I have a theory: ‘A teacher’s stress level at the beginning of the year is inversely proportional to his/her years of experience’. It does ring true, doesn’t it? It’s also true that the more one prepares in advance the smoother the first days will be and the easier it is to cope with contingencies. The purpose of this blog post is to help reduce ‘back to school’ anxiety for novice teachers and experienced colleagues alike, with one or two new ideas to add to your ‘bag of tricks’ so as to give flagging enthusiasm a boost. 1. Ask yourself: what would you like your students to achieve by the end of the year? Make sure your students can relate to your objectives (e.g. 2. Don’t forget about your own development. 3. Prepare a learning environment that energises, rather than one that demotivates and increases anxiety. 4. 5. 6. Looking for material or ready-made activities to use with your students? 7. Lesson plans are good, but Lesson Templates are far more versatile! 8. 9. 10. Like this:
