Happy December! It is officially the holidays and I couldn't be more excited! We are done school for the semester next Thursday and it is definitely a good feeling. That means that there are only 6 more months until I am graduated and only 7 more months until I am a married woman! Of course, there will also be teaching interviews somewhere in that time frame as well. So many exciting things! :)
In the meantime, here are some neat resources I found this week. As always, I will be adding them to my lists of resources under the Fav Websites heading.
1 ) History Detectives
- History Detectives is a television series on PBS that explores, "historical
mysteries that connect local folklore, family legends and interesting objects."
It is also a great online resource for the classroom! If you are interested in
spicing up one of your history lessons this is definitely a site to visit for
inspiration! Users can learn more about historical investigations and even
watch full length episodes.
- They even have a specifically designated "For Educators" section that
includes detailed lesson plans and suggestions on how to use History
Detectives in the classroom!
2 ) The Physics Front
- Teaching physics or physical science? Then this is the database for you!
The Physics Front is boasting over 1,500 resources that are easy to find
as they are categorized by subject, level, author, cost and much more!
This seems like a really good website to go to if you need lesson plan
ideas, supplementary material or need something quick for a sub.
- This is definitely something to put in your back pocket in case you end
up teaching in this area!
Happy Monday everyone!
