Resources To Start Off Your Week 83

     Another weekend has passed and another week has begun! This past Friday saw our province's teachers participating in multiple professional development sessions through #MTSPDDAY. As such, Twitter was a buzz with all sorts of new resources and ideas! At the start of each week I post a list of Resources to Start Off Your Week with at least two new additions that I will add to my favourite websites page (when applicable, resources will also be added in to my Manitoba resources page).

1 ) Stoodle
- Virtual corkboard tool (similar idea to Padlet/Wallwisher)
- Allows the creator to share their board through a link and users can add text and images to create a collaborative piece of work
- Great for brainstorming or exit ticket activities!

2 ) Top Educational YouTube Videos
- A list of 197 YouTube videos that can be used in the classroom.
- Organized by subject area and includes general education, math, science, english, engineering, and much more!
- Make sure you scroll down to read the comments as well because more suggestions are included there from other readers.

3 ) Healthline Body Maps
- Illustrates different parts of the body with 3D interactive simulations.
- Includes zoom features to see parts of the body in more detail, male and female representations, written summaries, and real-life and simulated videos.
- Can easily be shown on an interactive whiteboard for easy visualizations 
- Perfect for any unit on the human body (K-12) and can easily be adapted to create higher-level labs for biology classes

Enjoy your week!
