This site offers information on Jewish culture. Information is shared by using stamps and is added to yearly. The cultural information includes history, holidays, food, education, Zionism, greetings, games, nature, and art. The target stamps are enlarged and easy to see.

tag(s): holocaust (41), jews (26), religions (68)

In the Classroom

Use this site when studying world cultures, particularly the Middle East. Have students prepare a similar project on stamps from other countries. Use the stamps on holidays as a jumping off place to study Israeli holidays. If you have created a class wiki, have students add to it using information gathered here. Not comfortable with wikis? Check out the TeachersFirst Wiki Walk-Through.

Use JotForm to quickly build a professional online form. Build contact forms, surveys, and many other forms in a matter of minutes. Customize to meet your needs. Use the large, empty canvas by dragging and dropping elements. Generate and post your form online and receive an email for every survey response.

tag(s): polls and surveys (55)

In the Classroom

Use in the classroom for a survey, collecting student information, or any time you are looking for feedback. Use this site for checking student knowledge quickly and easily. Use in projects, including graduation projects. Students can collect data for analysis. Teachers can collect input from parents or students, including conference concerns to know about in advance or questions students have about current curriculum topics. Students who might never speak up in class may be willing to share their questions online, especially if it is anonymous.

Comments

Jotform is really easy to use! But there are some limits regarding how long and often you can use it without paying. I also use Google forms/ spreadsheets in my class to make forms. Google spreadsheets also have gadgets that let you graph the results! Elise, CO, Grades: 0 - 12

Use this engaging mashup of Google Street View and Google Maps to hop around the globe by randomly teleporting into a continent. Use as a spontaneous way to learn about other areas and review how to determine longitude and latitude of a location. Choose a continent to visit and click "Teleport." View the street view in the large screen and the Google Map location in the smaller one. This site gives a "taste" of the area, not a wide variety of photos.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): continents (49), countries (83), map skills (80), maps (292)

In the Classroom

Use this resource to have students or groups of students teleport to a random area. Assign projects that require students to learn more about the area including history, people living there, natural resources, ecosystem information, and more. Create travel brochures, wiki pages, and more with the information. Have students make a multimedia presentation or mystery tour of world locations using one of the reviewed TeachersFirst Edge tools reviewed here.

tag(s): countries (83), cultures (111), map skills (80), maps (292)

Create a class bulletin board using Padlet, reviewed here, where you can make columns for the most popular destinations (for a travel guide) and students can contribute to the bulletin board. Then have students create an online book or brochure of images and captions about their travel guide using a site such as Storybird, reviewed here. Use the information at this site to have your students create conventional or multimedia projects.

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 (85), massachusetts (10), states (161)

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.
