Here are a few things I have come across online this week that I have found interesting.
Cargo Bridge Game – In this game you need to build bridges across gaps so that workers can bring the cargo back. It’s kind of fun and the levels get harder as you go on. I didn’t get very far. One thing I didn’t like about this was that you had to watch an advertisement before you could play.
The Chronicles of Narnia Audio Books – At this site you can download or listen to any of the Chronicles of Narnia audio books. They are all free!
Smithsonian National Museum Virtual Tour – Here you can take a virtual, self-guided, room-by-room walking tour of the whole museum. The visitor can navigate from room to room either by using a floor map or by following blue arrow links connecting the rooms. Camera icons indicate hotspots where the visitor can get a close-up on a particular object or exhibit panel.
Where in the World – A Google Earth Puzzle – This site has a multiple choice test where you try and identify locations based off of a photo from Google Earth.
7 Billion – How did we get so big so fast? – This YouTube video from National Public Radio gives a good visual example of the worlds population growth. (2 min 34 seconds)
I hope that everyone’s winter break is going well. Students, remember that you have your learning project to work on. If you create something that can be viewed digitally, you can email your project to me!
Also, visit Study Island over the break and answer a few questions. I’m not sure if there will be prizes for the students that work on it over the break, but there have been prizes for working on Study Island over the weekends before!
