Just like the title suggests, I want to declare to all teachers and educator out there, I have hit the jackpot! At least, probably, one of many. So if you have a “jackpot” website that you would like to share please include the link in the comments section for other people to access.
I have included the link to a speedtile site developed by sharnon007. I have been following this person on twitter and she has some of the best websites out there that are incredibly useful to teachers.
Some other websites that I have found to be interesting, but more topic specific are below:
http://www.pdesas.org/module/content/search/ (you really want to check this one out. Enter in your key word and grade level you are looking for. This truly is an educators search engine)
http://mathbits.com/ (this has online calculators, so for all you smart board teachers out there, this is a tool to check out)
http://www.incwell.com/Biographies/index.html (because of the pop-ups on this page, you may want to copy the information to a different place on the web for paperless teachers, or print out and reproduce what you want.)
http://www.spellingcity.com/teachers/teachers.html (This one is for all teachers who still do spelling with their students
http://larryferlazzo.edublogs.org/2009/03/03/the-best-sites-for-learning-about-cesar-chavez/ (Here is someone else’ “Jackpot” that has been put together on this blog.
http://www.periodicvideos.com/# (This one is very cool. Click on the element and a short video comes up talking about the properties of this element and what it is used for.)
http://weblist.me/Animalcells (Interactive visual learning about animal cells. Students can then test their knowledge by taking a quiz after exploring the cell parts)
http://www.sheppardsoftware.com/health/anatomy/cell/plant_cell_tutorial.htm (Very cool, interactive visual learning about plant cells)
http://www.sheppardsoftware.com/health/anatomy/cell/bacteria_cell_tutorial.htm (This one looks at bacteria cells and allows students to test their knowledge from the tutorial. Great interactive learning tool)
