Resources to Start Off Your Week 14

     It is the SECOND LAST week of student teaching! As much as I am loving being in the classroom and teaching, days like today, with plus 25 degrees Celsius weather, have me counting down the days until we are on summer vacation and my fiance and I can move back home. To get through the last two weeks I've found some great new resources to start off your week!

1 ) What About Me? Intel Infographic
- The Intel website now has a tool that allows users to create a
  personal infographic about themselves using information from
  one of their social networking websites (Twitter, YouTube, etc).
- Its really neat to see a summary of all of your information and
  they are very eye-catching!

2 ) BBC Interactives & Graphics
- This website has put together a great compilation of interactive
   images and graphics that allow students to explore a variety of
   subject-areas.
- This provides excellent starting points for research projects!

3 ) Alliance Outline and Thematic Maps
- The Arizona Geographic Alliance and ASU’s School of Geographical
  Sciences has put together a FREE online resource of printable maps.
- Includes different maps of the world, countries, regions, grade specific
  maps and historical maps.

Happy Monday everyone!
