Resources to Start Off Your Week 16

     Even though I am on summer holidays I am still going to try to blog as much as possible. With that in mind, here are some new resources to start off your week. I will add these to my Favourite Websites list as well!

1 )Viscosity Explorer
- This interactive website allows students to explore viscosity by experimenting with
   different liquids and different temperatures. The two cylinders provide a good
   opportunity to compare and contrast the differences.
- I find that viscosity is often a term that students get mixed up or backwards, this
  website is very clear and helpful!

2 ) Easel.ly Infographics
- Everyone loves infographics and easel.ly gives users the options to create their own!
  The drag and drop option is really easy to use but because it is still in beta-form
  and there are not a lot of provided options. Luckily, users have the option to upload
  their own images which allows for full customization!
- Infographics are perfect for students to use to present project information or teachers
  could even create their own for students to read over to get information!

3 )  Kids WB The Wizard of Oz
-  A cute website to accompany a Wizard of Oz unit. This website provides
   images and video clips from the original movie, activities, games,
   downloads and product purchases.

4 )  Free Foto
- This database allows users to search through 100,000+ royalty free
   images that can be used free of charge! An amazing option is that
   users have the option of downloading entire collections to be used for
   off-line use as well.
