Where would you like to take your students this year? Google Expeditions will expand your choices. You may check this spreadsheet to find available trips. You don't have to have a virtual reality viewer to use them, but if you are a teacher in Shelby County the kit will be coming to your school.
A big thank you to Karly Moura, for heradditional resources on her site: Google Expeditions
Free Rice is a great site that has been in use since 2007. Your students can send rice to needy people while studying art, chemistry symbols, English grammar, geography, French, German, Italian, Spanish, basic math, multiplication tables or more. They even have a section for preparing for the SAT! Just click change subjects to choose a different topic.
The newest version allows you to change the language (that the directions are written, etc.) AND includes multiplication tables, capitals of the world, identifying countries from a map, and several other new topics!
Share and explore the world in photos with Panoramio from Google. Take your students on a global expedition to China or Chile, or you can even let them explore on their own with this web-based, free-to-use site.
Google Earth is known for its Street View of places. It makes you feel like you are there. Well, now you can make your way through the Amazon Jungle using Google. Part of the trip is recorded using a camera sent through the jungle on a zipline.
This is something that causes me all kinds of problems ... if it's 10:00 here, what time is it in Georgia? etc. This website will answer your questions and even more! Time.is gives the exact time in your location and various places around the globe. It will also give helpful information like sunset, sundown and day length, as well as general information about the country.
Another helpful feature is the ability to compare times between locations - ex: What would be the best time to Skype with someone in Australia?
Discover exhibits and collections from museums and archives all around the world. Explore World Wonders, Historic Moments, Art Collections using Google street view and other Google technologies. Bring Pompeii to life, see video accounts from holocaust survivors, or explore Starry Night. Warning, this site can make time pass without you realizing it. 🙂
