Teacher pay Teachers is having an incredible leap year sale on the 29th of February. This was an idea proposed on the forum and it is coming to fruition this week. Use the code L2P9Y to additional money off of 1000's of products that will already be on sale. Click on my Teachers pay Teachers button to get there! This is a great opportunity to buy things from your wish list. The next sale won't be until the teacher appreciation sale in May. Happy shopping!
I always ask my students, before we start studying plate tectonics, how many earthquakes they think happen in a year. They always think it is just a few. This is probably due to the fact that only a few are ever covered in the news, and these are the very destructive ones. Well here is a very cool video that you should let your students watch. It plots all the earthquakes that occurred in 2011 and also does sound effects. Let me know what you think!
I decided to create a free crossword for Chapters 1-3 after having so much success with my other Hobbit crossword. This crossword has three pages; a full color page, a plain page without a picture, and an answer sheet. It was created at puzzle-maker.com for use commercially. Enjoy!
