Resources To Start Off Your Week 54

     Happy Louis Riel Day! In Manitoba we are celebrating a long weekend and I am really enjoying the extra time to work on homework and spend time with family. Coincidentally it is also storming a lot so I'm think that I would be at home even if it wasn't a holiday! This past week has been a busy one for resources as I summarized over twenty resources for my post on Infographics and Videos in the Classroom. As I do with all of these resources, I will be adding them to my lists of resources under the Fav Websites heading.

1 ) Flashback Firsts - 125th Anniversary of National Geographic
- To celebrate their 125th Anniversary, National Geographic has put out
   several new features on their online database; one of which is the Flashback
   Firsts gallery. This interactive image gallery features images from events
   that were the first of their kind like the 1909 Arctic Expedition, Manchu Pichu,
   and more.
- There is an information icon in the bottom right hand side that can be clicked
   on for more information on each of the images.
- This gallery could provide some interesting pictures that can be used in activating
   strategies or could be used as an example for students to create similar galleries
   about "firsts" in their lives!

2 ) Middle School Chemisty
- This is a great resource for teachers who are teaching science! Here is the
  description from the site, "What happens when solids, liquids, and gases are
  heated and cooled? Why is one substance more or less dense than another?
  What causes certain substances to dissolved in water? What happens when a
  chemical reaction takes place? These questions and many more are explored
  in Middle School Chemistry, a resource of guided, inquiry-based lesson plans
  that covers basic chemistry concepts along with the process of scientific
- In addition to accessing all the lesson plans online, teachers can also download
  the entire 691 page Teacher's Guide book, access multimedia videos and
   demonstrations for each chapter, and get detailed materials lists for organizational
- A BIG thanks to Mrs. Brown at The Science Life for letting me know about
  this great resource :)
