1 ) Easy Moza
- Easy Moza is an easy-to-use online tool that allows you to make photo
mosaics using hundreds of your own photographs. I think this is so neat
and you could use it to create interesting mosaics for any number of
projects or subjects!
- Thank you to a fellow blogger, Mr. L, for introducing me to this
* Here is one I created of my blog button using pictures from my student
teaching, blog and clipart!
2 ) Out of Eden
- "About 60,000 years ago, our ancestors took the first steps out of their
prehistoric African "Eden" to begin exploring the Earth. In early 2013,
reporter Paul Salopek will follow in their footsteps during an epic on-foot
journey that will take seven years."
- Sponsored by National Geographic, this project will explore several
different countries, languages, ethnic groups and landscapes as Paul makes
his way up through Africa, across Asia, up to Russia, across to North
America and down through to the tip of South America.
- I can't imagine undertaking a journey of this magnitude! There are so many
different learning experiences that could come of a project like this. Students
could follow his walk and do case study projects based on his location.- http://www.outofedenwalk.com
3 ) Social Studies Writing Prompts
- I think the traditional essay is so overused in History classrooms so this
resource got me really excited! Through images and text, these writing
prompts provide interesting and creative ways for students to begin
writing. They are actually entertaining which makes it easy and fun for
your students to begin writing from a historical perspective.
- Even if the specific prompt doesn't match what your class is doing at
a certain time, they provide a great example for you to make your own!
- I came across this Tumblr account through one of my favourite Social
Studies blogs, World History Teachers Blog, I definitely recommend
you check them out too.
Happy Monday everyone!
