Virtual Teacher Australian History Trove Pictures of Australia Take a look at the Picture Australia site. This site will not be officially lauched for a while yet. I provides a single point of access to over 450,000 digitised images from pictorial collections of many leading cultural heritage institutions. It's a fantastic resource. Printable Map of the USA Free printable map of the Unites States in different formats for all your geography activities. Choose from many options below – the colorful illustrated map as wall art for kids rooms (stitched together like a cozy American quilt!), the blank map to color in, with or without the names of the 50 states and their capitals. We thought this would be fun too – a jigsaw puzzle of the map of the USA in an extra-large size print! detail view:

Mimosa Soup – French Women Don't Get Fat Pity those who don’t love the sweet taste and delicate texture of leeks. Eventually, you probably will. But if it’s not to your liking, follow the example of my cousin in Aix-en-Provence. After the birth of two sons she needed to shed a few pounds, but didn’t love leeks.

What is global education? The heart of global education is enabling young people to participate in shaping a better, shared future for the world. Global education emphasises the unity and interdependence of human society, developing a sense of self and appreciation of cultural diversity, affirmation of social justice and human rights, as well as building peace and actions for a sustainable future in different times and places. Global education promotes positive values and assists students to take responsibility for their actions and to see themselves as global citizens who can contribute to a more peaceful, just and sustainable world. Australian global educators place particular emphasis on developing relationships with our neighbours in the Asia–Pacific and Indian Ocean regions.

- 25 Free Resources from Discovery Education 0 Comments October 25, 2011 By: David Andrade, Oct 25 Written by: 10/25/2011 7:42 AM ShareThis Discovery Education is a great resource for educators, with assessment tools, streaming videos, TechBooks (online, interactive "textbooks") and much more. Where to Find Good Educational Videos There’s a right and a wrong way to use videos in the classroom. Not all videos are primed for instructional use, and not all instruction lends itself to video. However, pairing a great video with the tools students need to engage with it can lead to a deeper understanding of or alternate perspective on what’s being taught. Check out the September Education Update article “Showing Videos in the Classroom: What’s the Purpose?”
