How about quick way to create up to 44 different activities based on up to 500 words? Find your favorite vocab list and head to Textivate. Once the words are pasted into the box on the Textivate page, generate the desired activity. There is even a “?” that can be clicked so the user can get directions if s/he needs help.
This would be fun to use in so many classes – really anything with vocabulary, matching, math problems and answers, events, it could be used for almost anything text-based.
Our classrooms don’t have clocks. Well, not unless the teacher in that room brings one. While I try to don a watch each day and the clock in my menu bar usually saves me if I forget, from time to time I need more. The following resources are helpful and fun to project too. The Online Clock/Online Alarm Clock offers digital and analog clocks, alarm clocks, some alarm clocks, and a goofy but fun world clock. The Online Stopwatch continues to be a reliable go-to if we need to time group or station activities.
Time is also in our curriculum, not just in a supportive role. Looking for a good interactive whiteboard activity to help younger students learn to tell time? ABC ya! has a series of interactive games focused on telling time on both digital and analog clocks. World clock resources may be helpful in a geography class at any level. The Poodwaddle World Clock has not only a track of current international times, but gives data on food, energy, births, deaths and more.
Happy Friday, the clock says it is almost the weekend!
A follow-up to Tuesday’s GeoDart post, Brian said it took a little while, and there are some things he will change in future map-game-making endeavors, but ultimately he was able to create exactly what he wanted to for his students and was pleased with his final product which he graciously allowed me to share with you. To see it, click here and scroll to the bottom of the page. Thank you, Brian! 🙂
