Visit Georgia with Tour Builder

Last week I posted some of my samples of Google Tour Builder- now I have a student sample from Pam Chartock’s class.  Visit Georgia (the country not the state) in this Google Tour- there are some breathtaking sites!

Often times when you print a Google Spreadsheet, the pages don’t look exactly right.  Using the directions from Alice Keeler here, you can customize your pages.

Cartoons in the Classroom

No, these are not the ones you clip and paste by the door.  The AAEC (The Association of American Editorial Cartoonist) have lessons plans and cartoon templates tied to current events.  Geared to middle and high school students, this could be a creative way to weave today’s topics into your history lessons. Please see their site and a complete review by TeachersFirst here.

Book Creator and Butterflies

This morning I had the chance to work with Melissa Ciampa’s students and explore
Book Creator.  First, we used pictures from the Saturday POAC walk to create a book
together about the event.  Special thanks to Mrs. Lynch for her help in capturing our
thoughts for the book.
Then, each student worked individually to create a book about the butterfly life cycle.
They have butterflies in their classroom and awaiting their exit from their cocoons.  
Here is one created by one of her students.

Special thanks to Ms. Ciampa’s class for their help!

How do you know when the form is submitted?

While I use an add-on to be notified when a form is completed, Alice Keeler
shares some shortcuts here.
