Illuminating, Exploring, Interacting…

  • For those of you who will soon be assigning research projects, here’s BibMe. A free, online bibliography creator. You can choose MLA, APA, or Chicago style citations.
  • Science teachers, if you’ve never visited the Exploratorium, it’s time! Lots of interactive resources and information covering everyday science.
  • The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics is providing Illuminations to teachers and students. The site includes 96 online activities as well as web resources and lessons.
  • The Utah Education Network’s site hosts lots of activities from across the curriculum and divided into K-2, 3-6, and 7-12. The site also contains lesson plans, links, tools, and more. (Scroll down on the left for the Interactives.)
  • NASA simply puts up a ton of information on the web. Today I’m highlighting PlanetQuest, which focuses on NASA’s search for “another Earth.” They’ve included a special Educator section for teachers to use.
  • Sticking with NASA, they’ve just announced that they’re taking applications for its 2009 astronaut class. The announcement is located here. Don’t think you qualify? Here’s a quote,

Teaching experience, including work at the kindergarten through 12th grade level, is considered qualifying. Educators with the appropriate educational background are encouraged to apply.

So get busy, space explorers!
