Tuesday Tech Tip: Japan/Earthquake Resources

I want to share two timely tools with you today.

I imagine students and teachers in most classrooms, in some way, are talking about Japan.  It’s a teachable moment–earthquakes, tsunamis, nuclear reactors, relief organizations, engineering, the stock market, charity, satellite imagery, and more.  Here are two resources for understanding the scope of what’s happened.

Drawing: To be entered this week, please send an example of student work you’d like to showcase on the LISD blog.  You’re doing great things in the classroom–please share!

And just a reminder:  What do teachers make? A difference. Thank you for all you do.
