Had fun in class using a Word Splash.  Take vocabulary words or words/phrases that surround a common theme (like seasons) and "splash" them randomly on paper. I use a word processing program and type them in randomly. For seasons I had words and phrases like equinox, solstice, June, closest to the sun, etc.  Have students use colored pencils to group the words.  A student may use red to circle all the words for spring and she would use the red to title the group "Spring."

A good link for science and math...looking back in the past ishttp://http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/6-places-read-newspapers-archiv...


This will give you 6 sites where you can search old newspaper online. Using key words such as "Darwin" or Wright Brothers" can produce interesting primary source articles. I've only played with two of the suggested sites, but they were rewarding in terms of information as well as easy to use.

Hello all - can you suggest a web 2.0 app that a student could use to make her own web page?  The web page is a project for school and won't be anything super fancy but I still want it to look good and I want to be able to have some control over what she creates.  Any suggestions?

hi do you have any best science practices for inclusive education

Have Grant money to spend, and someone suggested that probeware might be an option to spend the money on. Does anyone use it in their classroom? If so, does it get used much and what seems to be the best brand to look at. We were thinking of buying netbooks to go along with it.
