Classroom Timers - Fun Timers We've decided to put our new fun timers, and timers for classrooms into a nice sub-section. These are great timers for children, or maybe meetings, or anything really.

Learning the Skeleton with QR codes Today in my junior Physical Education class we started our work on learning the human skeleton, which includes being able to identify the major bones. Now this time last year I introduced the students to ‘Harold’ the model skeleton, so this year I did the same thing, however one thing was very different…. Harold had undertaken a little update and his bones had been affixed with QR codes that when scanned would reveal the name of the underlying bone. Once the activity had been explained the students set about scanning and revealing, scanning and revealing, scanning and revealing until they could identify the 20 key bones in the human skeleton via scientific name. The next step was to play ‘Skeletal Bingo’ which the kids ran for each other.
