It’s time for the Olympics! How will you stay connected? The following blog post was created with Olympic Resources for students and teachers. They are in 3 categories. The first are links to the current Sochi Winter Olympics, the first 2 sites are geared for younger kids to be able to read. The second is a history of the Olympics (great for those studying timelines) and the last are some teacher resources.

She also used Google Earth to help them orient themselves.

As part of stretching Digital Learning Day into a Digital Learning Week, Miss Drews first grade class did some digital graphing as a class. Great class activity that got all the students involved, the students were engaged and learned at the same time! She didn't have a whiteboard or any fancy tools, a one computer classroom with a projector. Kids loved it. Try it in your classroom!
