I am always searching the net for free resources and/or web 2.0 tools. There are so many out there, but I decided today to share some of my favorite visual ones.
coloring page generator. I recently used it to create a one of a kind coloring book of memories. Use it to make a fun yearbook for a class or momento from a fun class trip.
create their own cartoons with captions, characters, settings, etc.
online archive of pictures from Life magazine. This is a great way to introduce famous people and events from history. Create a gallery walk that allows students to see and develop a context for the content before studying it.
list of really cool virtual tours. I was able to show my students a spectacular 360 degree view of Machu Picchu. I found a site with a live feed from a nature preserve in the Sahara. This page is definitely worth checking out and using with your students.
