Magnificent Measurement Gather students in a large group. Ask them to name the different time frames within a day—morning, afternoon, and night. Have students share activities they participate in during the morning time (for example, wake up, eat breakfast, and brush teeth), afternoon (for example, eat lunch, play outside, and go home from school), and night (for example, eat supper, do homework, and watch TV). If students have difficulty, ask such guiding questions as “When do you eat breakfast?” Read the story The Grouchy Ladybug, by Eric Carle, to the class. After reading the story, introduce the attributes of time using real clocks. Distribute a copy of the Morning, Noon, and Night Activity Sheet to each student. Assessments At this point, it is important to assess whether or not students understand the attributes of time. Extensions For practice, have students at the upper end of the grade band, make their own ladybug clock. Questions for Students 1. [Student responses may vary.] 2. 3. Teacher Reflection

Story Dice - a creative storytelling tool from Dave Birss As you can see above, you get five story dice (or nine dice, if you prefer), each with a random image on it. Your job is quite simply to turn these prompts into a story. I recommend you try to work with the order they appear on the screen but if you’re finding it tough, you can do some swapsies. You also don’t need to take the image literally. You can use the dice metaphorically or as representations of other concepts. You may just want to dive in as soon as you see them, working from left to right as you try to incorporate each image into your yarn. But let me give you an example. - Mathletics - Achieve More Khan Academy Nutrition Education, Free - Fun Healthy Kids' Games, Healthy Family Living Website, Food Pyramid Education, Healthy Eating Wellness Tools, Children's Nutrition Information, Free Kids' Games Popular Cities Kansas City Tutoring Buffalo Tutoring Richmond Tutoring Tulsa Tutoring Denver Tutoring Los Angeles Tutoring Spokane Tutoring Detroit Tutoring Albuquerque Tutoring Memphis Tutoring Popular Subjects Math Tutors in Chicago Reading Tutors in San Diego GRE Tutors in New York City Reading Tutors in Washington DC Computer Science Tutors in Miami Algebra Tutors in New York City French Tutors in Chicago Math Tutors in Phoenix ACT Tutors in San Diego ACT Tutors in Seattle ACT Tutors in Los Angeles MCAT Tutors in Phoenix LSAT Tutors in Phoenix GRE Tutors in Los Angeles Reading Tutors in Atlanta ISEE Tutors in New York City GMAT Tutors in Chicago MCAT Tutors in Atlanta Spanish Tutors in Atlanta SSAT Tutors in Miami Popular Test Prep Call us today to connect with a top tutor Call Now Download our free learning tools apps and test prep books Show More Privacy PolicyTerms of UseSitemapSign In 4.9/5.0 Satisfaction Rating over the last 100,000 sessions.

Afterlife Buildings A while back there was a game called Afterlife which was like a harder version of Sim City 2000 and also involved Heaven and Hell instead of some American city somewhere. Wikipedia has a fairly okay page about it, at least at the time of writing. Unlike Sim City, the buildings are not just R-C-I stuff, they're rewards and punishments focusing on the seven deadly sins and their conjugate virtues and so to add flavour, the designers wrote or had written a bunch of descriptions for pretty much every building in the game. They are all present in one big data file that I PRESUME has some parsable structure to it and may also contain the graphics (which are some pretty charming and Boschian bits of late 90s pixel art), and certainly contains the music (open it up as a .wav file, but get the sampling parameters wrong and you get [INSERT YOUTUBE LINK HERE]) but the descriptions are at least in it in plain text. Here, then, are all the descriptions and graphics I could find. "This is horrible!"
