Students complete this self-grading written text in Spanish about camping, nature and preterit verbs by choosing and writing in the correctly spelled word.
Students can practice their reading skills as they read stories with high-frequency words; interact with the computer to create new text; understand that changing one word in a sentence can change the meaning of the entire sentence; recognize consonant sound-spellings; distinguish easily confused letter pairs; and recognize common short and long vowel sounds as they participate in this interactive reading of Clifford's beloved stories.
Students will read and analyze sonnets to discover their traditonal forms. Students will chart the poems' characteristics, including the poetic features and their emtional responses to the poems. Then they review the details for similarities, deducing traditional sonnet forms that the poems have in common. After this introduction, students write original sonnets, using one of the poems they have analyzed as a model.
This is a webquest acitivty. Students are given links to different websites to find information about weather fronts. The websites contain information in text, pictures, and interactive forms.
This resource describes activities using interactive geoboards to help students identify simple geometric shapes, describe their properties, and develop spatial sense. The first part, Making Triangles, focuses attention on the concept of triangle, helping students understand the mathematical meaning of a triangle and the idea of congruence, or sameness, in geometry. In the next part, Creating Polygons, students make and compare a variety of polygons, describing the salient properties of the shapes they create.
This interactive applet may be used by students to assist them with the process of letter writing. The generator requires students to fill in the specific components of a letter before it generates a correctly formatted letter.

Learn how to increase engagement and retention in your classroom. Edutopia's professional development PBL teaching module is designed for either a two- to three-hour class or session or a one- to two-day workshop, and is divided into two parts.Part one, Guided Process, designed to give participants a brief introduction to PBL, answers the questions "What is PBL about?" "Why is PBL important?" and "How does PBL work?" The Guided Process also includes the Teaching About PBL section as well as a PowerPoint presentation (including presenter notes), which can be shown directly from the Web site or can be downloaded for use as a stand-alone slide show.Part two, Group Participation, assigns readings and activities for experiential PBL.

Students complete this self-grading, multiple choice online test in Spanish about camping and nature focusing on the correct usage of preterit and imperfect verbs.
This applet simulates two runners moving along a track and creates a graph of the time-versus-distance relationship of their motion. Students then observe the simulated races as they happen and relate the changing positions of the two runners to dynamic representations that change as the events occur. Students can predict the effects on the graph of changing the starting position or the length of the stride of either runner. They can observe and analyze how a change in one variable, such as length of stride, relates to a change in speed. This computer simulation uses a familiar context that students understand from daily life, and the technology allows them to analyze the relationships in this context deeply because of the ease of manipulating the environment and observing the changes that occur.
This lesson uses the story of “The Journey of Oliver K. Woodman” (book or Video) to set the stage for students to explore different locations and landforms around the world using VR and other interactive stations. After watching the video as a group and identifying the different states that Oliver visits, the teacher will then ask what if Oliver visited countries and traveled around the world? What would he see? Students will visit a VR station and look at multiple locations around the world and identify the different landforms in those locations.Lesson Link
This site offers students a bird's eye view of a community with the post office, police station, school, library, fire station, hospital and a home pictured. When one of these building is clicked on, a job description of the authority figure or community worker is provided. Students can draw and label their community in a similar manner and add other community workers.
