Curricu-Links: 16 July 2013

Standard

After spending much of my summer following some of my favorite educators, librarians, and contributors, I’ve come to the conclusion that there are way too many amazing resources hiding on the web.  With that in mind, I’m going to try to organize and aggregate some of the gems that I think would be helpful and interesting for the EHUE community.  (Please note that I found most of these resources by following the blogs to the right and through twitter.  You should check them out!)

General/Multi-Topic

History/Social Studies

  • Create Free Interactive Timelines – Stories Displayed on Maps | myHistro.
    • Haven’t played with this one too much yet, but I thought it looked interesting.  Combine timelines with maps to tell a story.  Click on the “explore” link to see what’s already out there.
  • Map Lab.
    • A new blog from Wired magazine devoted to maps!  Look at the post about “Your Favorite Movies Laid Out as Vintage Treasure Maps.”  Can you figure them out?

Science

Health/Physical Education

Music

Information Literacy/Tech

X marks the spot: Beatboxing brilliance from TEDxSydney and this week’s favorite TEDx talks

Standard

This is so amazing that I just had to re-blog… Music teachers, you’re going to love this!  While individual students might not be able to work the beat box the way Tom does, can you imagine beat box jazz ensembles?  I can!

Pair with books from our EHUE Library:

Orgill, Roxane. Skit-scat raggedy cat : Ella Fitzgerald. Somerville, MA: Candlewick Press, 2010. Print.

Weinstein, Muriel H. Play, Louis, play! : the true story of a boy and his horn. New York: Bloomsbury, 2010. Print.
