Resources to Start Off Your Week 6

Its a new week and what better way to start off our week by finding some great new online resources to use in our classrooms. I actually found both of these resources through discussions with other education students in class today, thanks guys! Remember, I will be adding these to my Favourite Websites page so ensure you head over there to check out the full list that I've complied so far.

1 ) The Scale of the Universe (2nd Version)
- This website provides an interactive model that allows users to use the
  scroll-bar to move through a list of objects based on their size, from the
  string theory to the observable universe!
- Teachers can use this website in a variety of science and social studies
  contexts and students can click on any one of the hundreds of objects in
  order to learn more.

2 ) Manitobia
- This website provides a detailed archive of Manitoba-based archives
  including photos, videos, newspapers, letters, public documents, etc.
- Teachers can use this website to gather primary sources for their
  lessons plans and students can use this website to research reliable
  material for projects.
- Yay for local information!

Happy Monday everyone!
