February Finds!

I cannot believe it is already FEBRUARY!!! January flew by in all its winter glory. Here in Georgia we got several threats of snow, but no snow days 😦 I know, I know I shouldn’t even need a snow day yet. However, the longing for snow is more for my two-year-old than anything 🙂

The month of February is going to bring the study of plate tectonics to my classroom. I am excited to try some new tools that I recently found.

The first tool is an interactive map. Students can plot their address and watch as it changes through 750 million years of Earth’s history. Students are actually able to see the plates move and all the changes the land around them has gone through. This is going to make it more real for my students and I cannot wait to use it.

I honestly wish that I had used this with my geologic timescale lesson – but I am going to use it for that next year.

The second item I want to share with you is a collaboration. I have collaborated with over twenty other teacher-authors to bring you a bundle of seasonal resources. I cannot wait to use the science resources included in the bundle. Check it out by clicking the image below:
