Learn all about the Commonwealth of Massachusetts including it's historic beginnings, fun facts, and the state government at this website just for kids. The site is divided into eight categories including State House trivia through Reconstruct MA Artifacts. One especially interesting area is The Ladybug Story, the true story of how a second grade class helped to make a new law. Also, be sure to take the Massachusetts history quiz to learn about the early setters of the commonwealth. If you are looking for state facts, there is a section just for this with almost anything you would want to know from symbols all the way through to famous sons and daughters of the state. This information is also available to download as a pdf.

tag(s): american revolution (86), massachusetts (10), states (163)

In the Classroom

Challenge your students to go past PowerPoint and make an online presentation using Animoto (reviewed here) or another reviewed presentation tool from the TeachersFirst Edge. Share the site with students as a resource for state research projects. Use The Ladybug Story with younger students to demonstrate the bill-creation process, then compare with your state's procedures.

This site offers in-depth information on finance topics including credit & debt and financial planning & money management. Each of these topics highlights tools and information available to teach financial literacy. One example is the Debt Payoff Calculator which is a tool to help explore options for paying off debt and how changing factors will affect payoff rates, interest, and other options for paying off debt. Similar tools are available for analyzing monthly payments, paying off credit card debt, and more. You will need to create a free account to access the Financial Education Problems of the Week, but other resources are available without signing in. Be sure to check out Dr. Math Financial FAQ's on the right side of the page for more resources pertaining to loans, interest, and debt.

tag(s): calculators (41), coins (8), currency (20), financial literacy (80), investing (10), stock market (13)

In the Classroom

Use tools available on the site on your interactive whiteboard or projector to explore how different factors influence finances. Have students predict outcomes before inputting information into the tools on the site. Use the tools when creating a mini-economy in the classroom.

Teachers may want to preview the upcoming programs for each week to connect their ELL/ESL students with the programs that concern their part of the world. Students could do an introduction to their countries before the class listens to an appropriate program. Ask your students to visit the site, listen, research, and create a multimedia presentation using one of the many TeachersFirst Edge tools reviewed here.

This blog was created and is maintained by Dickinson College (in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, just north of Gettysburg and the Mason-Dixon Line) for those teaching about the American Civil War era. The site is indexed by theme and category, making it easy to search for information and resources related to topics from slavery to science and technology to religion. Not limited to information about battles, soldiers or generals, the site offers commentary about the culture and social issues of the mid-nineteenth century. There are links to other resources and projects maintained by Dickinson College and others.

tag(s): 1800s (44), civil war (145)

In the Classroom

While the site might be useful to students doing higher level research or working on a National History project, teachers are the principal audience. If this is a passion of yours, add it to your RSS feed or bookmark it and add to your own knowledge base on this important topic. Share relevant blog entries with your class on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Challenge cooperative learning groups to read one of the blogs and share the information with the class by creating online posters on paper using a tool such as Web Poster Wizard (reviewed here) or PicLits (reviewed here).

My Culture Quest is an interactive that allows you to explore the world's museums and search for items from different countries. As items are gathered, you answer questions and move to new countries and items. Earn points based on the items gathered - more points are earned by gathering items by themes such as conflict, religion, or celebrations. Upon completion, see your items in an exhibit and a score based on the exhibit's success. Image links are also available.

tag(s): cross cultural understanding (115), cultures (105), map skills (80), museums (49)

In the Classroom

Allow students to try this on the interactive whiteboard or projector. Review geographical locations and continents as students travel to different exhibits. Geographic locations and museum exhibits found here could be used as options for reports on different countries and locations. Create Venn diagrams, comparing and contrasting different cultures to the students' culture. Use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram (reviewed here).

Have you ever wanted to share your class books online? Youblisher offers a wonderful, visual method for uploading pdf's to an online location and making them look like pages turning in a book. If you don't create with Acrobat, not to worry! You just need to scan your documents to convert them to a pdf file. Once you know how to generate pdf files, you are ready to go. Explore whether your computer can "print" to pdf files or learn how to use the scanner. If you use a Mac, the option to "print" from your word processor or other program to pdf is built right in. Once you have a file as pdf, upload the files to this site. Youblisher makes your files flippable like the pages of an interactive book. You receive a link (url) to add to your website. Check out the introductory video on the homepage. Students, teachers, and parents (and grandparents) will all love seeing classroom creations in this easy to view format.

tag(s): book reports (36), digital storytelling (142)

In the Classroom

Share interactive books created online for students to read at learning centers. Create a lesson via pdf files and share it on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Scan/convert and save students complete research projects, upload the pdf's as a way to share all information. Create a class book, or newsletter, including images, and upload the pdf "book" or newsletter to Youblisher. Then include the the url on your website to share with friends and family. Challenge students to create their own books (in cooperative learning groups) about a specific topic being taught in class. Have upper elementary or middle school students create online "little buddy books" they can share online with lower grade classrooms. If your interactive whiteboard program generates pdf files from in-class activities, why not share them in flippable form on your class web site for review or absentees?

There are printables included with some of the lessons.

This site is an excellent resource for learning Hebrew and expanding one's knowledge of Jewish culture and Israeli history. Try the interactives about multicultural objects. There is also an online picture dictionary in Hebrew. All activities feature both a learning section and a playing section, so those new to the site or the religion can glean information before they start enjoying all of the information and interactives.

tag(s): hanukkah (16), holidays (147), israel (17), jews (20), rosh hashanah (7), yom kippur (7)

In the Classroom

Keep this site in mind as an easy place to find lists of Jewish months, Jewish symbols, information about Judaism and its temples, and plenty of information about Jewish holidays. Since the Language Matching games section of the offering involves Hebrew writing, it is also a fun way to look at a different script. Classes studying world cultures, the Hebrew language, and/or international holidays can learn from this site and also use it as a model to create similar games and projects for other cultures and languages. Challenge students to learn some Hebrew and create a written story. Have students share the story visually while it is read aloud on a podcast. Use a tool such as PodOmatic (reviewed here), to share your podcasts.

This interactive story revolves around a young boy's reactions each time he visits the Metropolitan. Sara Bradshaw, the winner of the Metropolitan Museum of Art story-writing contest in 2007, is the author. The story focuses on Aaron's fascination with; Ancient Egypt's "Temple of Denbur", the painting "Washington Crossing the Delaware," ancient funerary masks from Peru, and European coats of arms. Additional links provide students more background information and reference materials about the pieces mentioned in the story. You can choose to read the text themselves or have it read to them.

tag(s): egypt (67), pyramids (29), washington (36)

In the Classroom

Project this story onto an interactive whiteboard or projector for shared reading or have students listen to it in small groups at a computer station. Ask students to explore the "About the Art" tab, and research one of the four artworks featured in the story. Afterwards, have them present their findings to the class. Integrate the study of Art with writing lessons by inviting the class to compose an additional chapter and research page to this story. Let students decide what additional awesome adventures Aaron might have with other pieces of art in the Metropolitan. Let students choose artwork found in their database collection. If you are lucky enough to live within field trip distance to the Metropolitan, have students select a work of art while touring the museum. Consider having students post their stories on Thinglink, (reviewed here), or create a comic strip version of their chapter with Comic Creator, (reviewed here). Include a link to this site and the class stories on your class webpage.
