If you teach grades 5-8, you might want to check out these resources from National Geographic for Oceans Month. In addition to the breathtaking videos, there are also a dozen activities for your students.

I was inspired by this blog post from Richard Byrne! While I’ve been walking at the track or the park (where there are mile markers along the route), I was interested in what a mile loop would look like in my neighborhood. Enter Google Maps and the measurement tool (it is all explained in a brief video in the post). Richard also mentioned Tom Barrett’s Math Map blog (it has several interesting projects).

The game is Semantris (a word game powered by Google).
I saw it in this blog post from Eric Curts (please click here
for additional information on this and other lesser-known Google tools).
