In Pieces is an interactive exhibition of 30 of the world's most interesting but unfortunately endangered species, portrayed through fragmented geometric art. Each species has a dedicated page with an animation and a brief, informative description highlighting its danger and the need for conservation. This artistic website aims to raise awareness about endangered species and illustrate how people can help with conservation. Each animal has statistics, a video, and a link to ways to help. The videos are housed in YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. Be sure to view the linked resources to ensure they are appropriate for your students.

tag(s): animals (283), conservation (84), endangered species (27), extinction (3), origami (15), statistics (115), tangrams (8)

In the Classroom

This resource would be great in art, math, or science. Download the images and have students use a drawing program to cut out shapes or use pattern blocks to replicate the downloaded image. Use this site in math class to enhance your statistics unit. The information is shown in various ways and provides students with a real-world connection on how statistics can be used to communicate information. Have students research a different endangered animal not shown and create a statistic presentation. In science, use this site to engage students in a unit on conservation. Have students view the site and record facts or statistics they found interesting. They could utilize a KWL to chart and record their thoughts. You can find many different graphic organizers at Freeology - Free Printable Graphic Organizers, reviewed here.

What font do you read fastest in? Take the test provided by the Virtual Readability Lab to test the best font for you. Begin by starting the test to view the directions. The test shares several short reading passages along with comprehension questions at the end of each passage and takes approximately five minutes to complete. When finished, users receive a report that includes the number of words read per minute, the correct percentage of questions answered, and the font that best matches the users' reading style. The authors of the Virtual Readability Lab recommend participants complete the test on a computer, not a phone, to achieve the best results.

tag(s): digital reading (16), reading comprehension (143), reading strategies (99)

In the Classroom

According to studies, reading in a font that best matches your reading style can increase reading speed without affecting comprehension and lead to better focus. Knowing your readers' fastest font allows educators to support student learning by adjusting fonts when creating worksheets, sharing websites, or providing articles. Use the information learned to adjust font settings in computer browsers. Go to settings, appearance, and fonts in Chrome or Edge to change all websites' font families, sizes, and weights. Include this site in activities encouraging students to participate in active learning and reflective experiences. After completing the test, ask students to write a summary of their results that includes action steps based on the information received. This activity might make an excellent addition to your students' academic portfolios. Create their portfolios in Seesaw, reviewed here or about.me, reviewed here.

Have you ever seen a picture and wanted to know where it was taken or what the object was in the image? Google Lens does this and much more. Use Google Lens to identify objects, translate text, find information, and guide you toward action based on the image's content. Click the image icon (small square) in Google's search bar on your computer or app to drag an image, upload a file, or paste an image link to begin. Search the highlighted area on the image to find places, shop for items, extract text, or translate text. Scan a flyer and add a date to your calendar, find visually similar items, or scan a business card to automatically convert the image into a digital contact and add the information to your phone's address book.

tag(s): DAT device agnostic tool (143), images (263), multilingual (67)

In the Classroom

Include Google Lens in your teacher toolbox for many uses by you and your students. Use this tool to identify plants and leaves near your school during science lessons, quickly translate information for multilingual learners using images, or identify unknown places or items in pictures. Google Lens suggests similar images; use this information to expand and find pictures to include with student projects. Ask older students to search for news articles from different countries and then translate the information to compare with articles from their local news organizations. Use Lens for scavenger hunts or quizzes, where students must identify objects or translate text in real-time, promoting engagement and making learning more interactive. Add images for your scavenger hunts to Quizziz, reviewed here or create an interactive hunt with GooseChase Edu, reviewed here.

As a final extended learning activity, ask students to share their learning using Sway, reviewed here, Genially, reviewed here, or Adobe Creative Cloud Express, reviewed here to create multimedia presentations.

Enter your prompt or activity into the chat box to begin, then use the pepper icons to select the specificity of directions. One pepper provides an essential list; five peppers offer the most detailed steps. Press enter after adding your prompt and choosing the level of directions to provide to view your results. Open the list by clicking the blue wand next to your prompt; hovering over the blue wand will show "break down the item." After viewing the list, use drag and drop features to change the order of steps in the list if desired, or choose the blue wand next to any item on the list to create additional steps. Other options in a dropbox next to each step of the directions include determining the approximate time to complete that step, editing the information, or deleting the step. Click the checkbox in each step as it is completed for a visual look at the progress in completing the task.

In the Classroom

Use Magic ToDo as a professional tool for creating to-do lists to complete upcoming tasks, such as preparation for parent-teacher conferences, writing long-term lesson plans, preparing for substitutes, and more. Share Magic To-Do with students to create a guide for planning on completing long-term projects. Show students how to use the estimated time feature to help them understand the time required to complete all project steps. To help students stay on track, ask them to create a to-do list for their upcoming project, take a screenshot of their list, and share it with you. Then, ask for weekly screenshots that show each student's progress in completing the project and ask them to use the checkboxes to mark completed items. If students fall behind, have short conferences to determine what is holding them back and provide support as needed. This tool is also helpful for students with special needs or attention disorders to use as a guide for completing required tasks.

ElevenLabs converts text to speech and provides many choices for voices used in the output. Although creating an account isn't required, it offers users more characters to convert text to speech. After signing in to your account, use the provided options to select a voice for output and adjust voice settings that include stability, clarity, and exaggeration. Each voice preview consists of a short description with suggestions for use, such as children's stories or narration. An additional option lets users generate custom voices using tools to adjust for age, type of accent, and strength of accent. When ready, type or paste text in one of up to 29 included languages to convert to speech; ElevenLabs recommends using longer text passages for better conversion to audio. Click generate to create and listen to your audio. Use the download link to save your audio as an MP3 file to your device. The free plan offers up to 10,000 characters monthly, up to three custom voices, and speech generation in 29 languages.

In the Classroom

Research shows that text-to-speech technology helps students focus more on content than reading, resulting in a better understanding of the reading material. Share a link to ElevenLabs with students, then demonstrate how to use this tool to listen to audio of a text to increase comprehension. Engage students in learning new content using ElevenLabs to introduce short introductory paragraphs from upcoming novels, textbook chapters, or primary source documents. Enhance learning and understanding of foreign languages by listening to the text in several different voices.

3 Act Math shares problems to complete 3 Act Math tasks for grades 4 - high school students, including geometry, algebra 2, statistics, and calculus. 3 Act Math tasks consist of three parts - an engaging and perplexing problem to spark curiosity, collecting data and solving the problem, and the teacher revealing the answer to the problem and reflecting upon student activities. After selecting and opening the problem, each activity shares resources such as videos broken down by acts. All materials are available to download as a single Google file and are correlated to Common Core Standards. Learn more about 3 Act Math by taking the free workshop on this site, including links to additional lessons for grades K and up. If your district blocks YouTube, then the videos may not be viewable.

tag(s): critical thinking (110), Problem Based Learning (12), problem solving (225), statistics (115)

In the Classroom

Introduce 3 Act Math into any math classroom as an engaging way for students to develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills. When introducing 3-Act Math activities, use Google Slides, reviewed here as a visual tool to reinforce the concept of the tasks. Create a three-slide presentation with a slide for each act that includes the video, questions, or supporting images used for the task. For younger students, ask them to share their responses and ideas and add that information to your presentation. For older students, add a slide for each student or group to share their responses. Extend learning by asking students to share reflections on the activity, including discussions of their predictions - what worked, what didn't, and how they made adjustments throughout the activity. Share those reflections as part of your original slide presentation, or ask students to use a video creation tool like moovly, reviewed here to share their problem-solving steps.
