Use maps to solve problems and help animals using GIS, Geographic Information Systems. This tool layers different kinds of information on a map such as animal habitat, where people live, and problems encountered by this animal. All of the layers are added to the map to show how all of the information affects the animal. Separating the layers allows you to identify patterns we would not ordinarily see, and see how all the factors interact. The animals studied are Humpback Whale, Bald Eagle, African Elephant, Giant Panda, and Koala. To find other GIS education resources within National Geographic, just type in GIS in the search box at the top right.

tag(s): endangered species (38), habitats (84), maps (288), pollution (66)

In the Classroom

Begin your study in science with endangered animals, animal habitats, people interacting with nature, pollution, or conservation. Share this site as an interactive whiteboard or projector presentation of GIS. After examining each layer of the map, discuss how human interaction affects each animal. Discuss ways that the patterns and interactions with humans changes the animal species. Use the site as a resource for nonfiction reading material or as a source for research material for informational reports. Choose different endangered or extinct animals and use GIS as an example for each student to create their own layer project with using Ignite, reviewed here. Ignite is a tool to create a unique multimedia project using layers and incorporating collaboration. Partner this site with a fictional book on endangered animals, such as Humpback Whale Tale, to provide more background knowledge for complete comprehension. Create a public service announcement for endangered animals, pollution, or conservation. Use one of the many templates at Lucidpress, reviewed here, to create a flyer or poster. Writing prompts come alive with the provided background information on animals for either informational writing or even narrative writing. Math and social studies classes can study map and graphing skills. Add this site to a center to identify main idea and supporting details.

Create virtual snowflakes using the simple tools of this Flash-based interactive. Click New Snowflake to access the tools. Be sure to watch the sample snowflake first to understand how to drag the nodes on the starter triangle. Click to add and drag nodes on each line of the triangle. Preview to see your shape replicated and rotated to make a full snowflake using radial symmetry. You can edit it to change how it looks. Add as many nodes as you wish to make more complex designs. Click to name and save your snowflake. You can also print it. Animate the snowflakes to see your creations "falling." Note that "saving" simply puts the snowflake information in the browser cache on your computer and may not actually "save" once you close your browser, depending on the computer settings. "Send to a friend" emails ONLY the website address (not your flake) for your friend to try the snowflake tool.

tag(s): snow (21), symmetry (55), weather (188)

In the Classroom

Explore geometric constructions or simply enjoy some winter fun with this tool. In math, geometry, or art class, explore what happens when a shape is repeated radially. Use this to demonstrate radial symmetry, figure/ground relationships, and the impact of obtuse/acute angles in creating snowflake shapes. Have students create flakes when studying angles. They can screenshot or print them, then write an explanation of why the angles they used created a successful flake. They can even create comparisons of two flakes. With younger students, use the snowflake builder as a writing prompt for a winter story or in lessons on crystals, weather, and more. Save printer ink by taking screenshots (Printscrn button on Windows or ShIft+Command+4 on Mac) to paste the flake images into a slideshow or save as images on your computer. Be sure to share this one on your class website for snow days!

Organize student Google documents with Doctopus! This tool is essential for organizing of documents both to and from students. Create a Google Doc template. Next, create a spreadsheet containing the students who will be using the document. When you install Doctopus as a Chrome add-on, a Doctopus folder is created in Google Docs. Be sure that the template you create and the spreadsheet containing student names are in that folder. A script needs to be installed to pull the student names from the spreadsheet and then send them the document. Find simple directions with screenshots here. Doctopus is a Google Chrome add-on and is available for Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, and Linux. This add-on is not available for Windows RT, iPad, or mobile devices as of this time.

tag(s): assessment (99)

In the Classroom

Use Google Docs more efficiently with this simple Chrome add-on. Though the process at first seems long, it actually makes sharing of documents easier with students. BUT it also makes the collecting of student documents easier. Use Docs for reading response journals, writing science labs, writing reports or papers, creating collaborative notes in any class, and more. What better way to comment on and improve student work!

Use this free slide-based multimedia app to put lessons and other material on any web browser OR iOs and Android devices. Build your own presentations using pre-made templates. The site does offer some ready-made presentations (some free). Many of the video and text presentations are from Khan Academy and include questions to answer as you work through the presentations. What is the best part of Nearpod? Teachers control the pace of the lesson, and students do not move to the next screen until advanced by the teacher. Use the teacher version of the app to push out the presentation to your students. Every student uses their own student app to follow the screens and answer the questions. This provides immediate feedback about every student. The feedback can be emailed to the teacher for later review. This formative assessment tool is invaluable and a unique part of the app. The tool also includes drawing for students to work out problems. Teachers are able to identify students who are not "on task" and not working within the app when a little red light pops up. Absent students are able to complete the assignment at home.

tag(s): assessment (99), classroom management (134), DAT device agnostic tool (196), multimedia (57), slides (63)

In the Classroom

This is an exciting way to begin an iPad (or BYOD) integration into the classroom. Though it may be difficult to determine the best pacing of the lesson, the ability to slow down the advancement of the next screen allows more time to digest the information. Be aware that students needing more time may be very frustrated as the screen may advance before they are able to finish. Start small by uploading presentations and using JPEG and other images. Add interactive elements such as polls and videos. Grab students attention by using the first slide to deliver a piece of humorous information. Create guided learning stations and push out several presentations to different devices as students move through the various lessons to be learned. This technique can be helpful for struggling learners. Use this tool to help reinforce the most difficult parts of the lesson. Use the app to create schedules for training, clubs, and more. For English, learn about grammar rules, sentence structure, and other elements necessary for good writing. For ESL/ELL classes and world languages, practice various vocabulary words and learn tenses of verbs. Learn vocabulary and basic scientific concepts in any science class or facts about historical periods in history classes. This app is a valuable tool in any classroom.

Meet your Common Core standards for nonfiction reading using the pages at this informative site! In addition, every student who creates a report, presentation, speech, or project, in any subject, needs to know this information. Consider dividing and presenting this site with a teacher in another curriculum, so students get the idea that this is information for EVERY class. Consider presenting the information, questions, and quizzes using a program such as GoClass, reviewed here or Answer Pad, reviewed here. With these programs, you can create questions or a scavenger hunt. Then you can quiz students on the information and have it all self-corrected. Moreover, using one of these programs will make this text heavy, but necessary material, much more tolerable for your students. You may want to challenge your gifted and musically inclined students to create a rap highlighting the important information they learned about plagiarism and citing sources. Have them teach the rap to the rest of the class. Or have students create a word cloud of the important terms they learn from this site using a tool such as Wordle (reviewed here).

Use ActivityCircle (formerly Frolyc) to create multimedia lessons on the web, and have access to them via the iPad (or any web browser). ActivityCircle also has ready-made lessons aligned to Common Core Standards. Search lessons by grade level or keyword. All ready-made activities list grade level, subject area, Lexile levels, and standards addressed. Whether using a premade lesson or designing your own, assign a lesson to students and collect data on student responses. Educators, tutors, and parents can author or create activities. Sign up with email and add student profiles. All assignments, creations, etc. that were on Frolyc transferred seemlessly to ActivityCircle. Just click on the name of the review above and you'll go there. There are several excellent videos to help you create everything on ActivityCircle! If your district blocks YouTube, they may not be viewable. You could always view the instructional videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

In the Classroom

Once you have created a class and student profiles, assign lessons from the catalog or create your own. If your students are using iPads, they will need to have the free ActivityCircle Spot app added. The app requires Wi-Fi to sync with activitycircle.com. Student profiles will automatically sync with the iPads. Each student can only interact with the activities assigned to him or her via an access code. Since ActivityCircle is web-based you can create easy, simple activities or elaborate units. Start building Common Core aligned and differentiated activities such as reading, filling out concept maps, writing paragraphs, drawing, answering questions, taking quizzes, and more. Add links to read and hear multimedia content such as videos and slideshows. For longer videos, you may want to put a tag or comment in certain areas. Use a program like EDPuzzle, reviewed here, to accomplish this. Tags can be as simple as "answer question 4 now." Alternatively, use one of the ready-made lessons from the catalog for free. The app will need Wi-Fi for video and voice-over. ActivityCircle publishes Common Core Standards aligned reading comprehension activities to this app for student use. The possibilities are endless!

Use your pictures and PhotoFunia to create photo collages, flyers, family trees, holiday albums, and more. No registration is needed! PhotoFunia has hundreds of effects and filters. More are added weekly. To add shadows, age your photo, or render it black and white just visit the Filters category. Add clever features such as an astronaut or a Santa suit, a witch's hat or a queen's crown. Looking for an attractive frame for your photos? Find one here. Write on the sand or graffiti text on the wall. Carve your name on the ground or create your very own road sign using text effects. The program is as easy to use as picking the effect and uploading a photo. Save it to your computer or email it. Try using PhotoFunia online with no registration, or get the free app for iOS or Andriod, and most other smartphones. At the time of this review, all photo effects appeared appropriate for use in the classroom. However, we always suggest you preview the tool before sharing it with students.

In the Classroom

You do not need to be artistic to transform a personal or stock photo into a stunning work of art or even an amusing image. Adjust any image's color intensity, value, and hue using the filters. Use this tool anytime that photos need to be edited for use in class blogs, newsletters, wikis, or websites. In primary grades, this tool could be useful for teachers to use to edit pictures from a field trip, science experiments, and more. Share the editing process with your younger students using your interactive whiteboard or projector. Edit together! Encourage older students to use this site themselves on images for projects or presentations. Use the features and effects to edit images to fit styles of photos when doing historical reports or to set the mood.

Why just record your voice or send a message the same old boring way? Use cartoon and movie characters to speak your message instead! Type your message in the box. There is a 25 word limit. The site takes clips from TV and movies to create a short video. Each word uses a different clip. If a clip is not available for a word you pick, Crumbles uses a computerized voice instead. A silly tool, but a fun one to enjoy. Click create link to share or share via Facebook and Twitter. Be sure to monitor students carefully as clips can be found from ANY word that they type into the message. It would be a good practice to approve messages students want to create before sharing the tool with them.

In the Classroom

Use this engaging (and fun) tool to create an announcement for the start of a student presentation. Create one to share the writing prompt for the day. Students may be inspired by the movie/TV clips that generate the message. Create a "6 degrees of" type assignment where the video/TV clips generated must have something in common. Students can take time to look at the clips to identify items in the background, characteristics of the actors/actresses, etc. Create a similar type of message from video clips of students taken throughout the year. Or, create your own by taping students saying words and splicing them together to create a similar end result. Use a tool such as StepUp reviewed here.
