The 25 Must Have Resources for Science Teachers Here is what I have been preparing for you over this weekend. Below is a list featuring some great resources for science teachers. These resources provide a wide variety of materials for teaching science from lesson plans, printables, activities, technology resources and many more. I invite you to have a look and share with your colleagues. This is a periodic table of chemical elements ( around 180 ) with an illustrative video around each element. Resources for Primary Source Documents Primary sources are resources that were first-hand created in a given period of time and never undergone any kind of editing or distortion. These sources are multimodal and they come in different forms. They can be artifacts, documents, pictures, recordings, essays, photographs, maps...etc. Now with the globalization of knowledge and the pervasive use of digital media, primary sources become accessible to everybody with an internet connection. However, the search for these materials is akin to a scavenger hunt and hence the importance of having a handy list such as the one below to keep for rainy days. I have been scouring the web for several hours and finally come up with this selection.
Smarthistory: a multimedia web-book about art and art history Smarthistory offers more than 1500 videos and essays on art from around the world and across time. We are working with more than 200 art historians and some of the world's most important museums to make the best art history resource anywhere. Use the "subject" pulldown menu (go to "Arts and Humanities") at the top of this window or click on the headings below to access our content: Art history basics First things first (you are here) The materials and techniques artists use Art 1010
Free Flyer Maker Online We provide pre-made flyer templates to get you started. If you'd rather make a flyer from scratch, Lucidpress offers a wide range of page sizes, editing tools, and font options. More Features Talk for primary science- Learn Chemistry NOTE: Non-YouTube and downloadable versions of the video can be found by scrolling down the in the menu on the left-hand side. The videos in this resource look at different ways to encourage children’s talk in science. Talk helps children to use scientific language effectively and develop their understanding of scientific ideas. Right across the curriculum, talk engages children, motivates them to use their speaking and listening skills and helps them learn how to respect and respond to each other. It reinforces the idea that mistakes can be opportunities for learning, leading children to find their own answers to problems.
14 YouTube Math Channels February 10, 2014 Since the posting of "20 Great Math Websites for Teachers and Students", I have received some requests from math teachers asking for websites that provide quality math videos. Upon checking my archive and some other online resources, I deemed it necessary to compile this list of Math YouTube channels to share with you. These are basically channels where you can have access to a wide variety of math videos and tutorials to help your students with Math. I have included only what I believe are the best Math channels out there. Check out this selection and share with your colleagues. 1- Mr. Making Current Events Accessible to Kids Many parents and teachers grew up doing dull current-events reports based on static text found in newspapers. Today's students, who are immersed in a world in which news can be updated by anyone 24/7, need a different skill set to read and understand the world. Classroom current-events time provides the perfect opportunity to practice critical-thinking and text-analysis skills using timely and real-world sources. There should be nothing dull about current events today. Everyday Interest In my classroom, Fridays are dedicated to current events, but that doesn’t mean the world waits.
Small World of Words Project Welcome to the small world of words project! Last modified: April 16, 2014 Voor Nederlandstalige informatie, klik hier The small world of words project is a large-scale scientific study that aims to build a map of the human lexicon in the major languages of the world and make this information widely available. In contrast to a thesaurus or dictionary, this lexicon provides insight into what words and what part of their meaning are central in the human mind.
