Cynthia, Thank you so much for referring the website eGFI. This is so resourceful for a new teacher especially. I am really excited to try some of the activities. Program a Friend looks really cool, it has to do with computer programing and software engineering concepts. I also like the Dirty Water Project. There is just so much available. Thanks again.

Thanks to all of you, this was a great forum. I am a future elementary teacher and when it comes to technology I use it and understand it myself, however using it in the classroom can be a bit intimidating. I am excited to check out all these apps. Thanks again,

This journal article did a fantastic job explaining the meaning behind Pluto no longer being a planet. Middle school students should have an enjoyable experience reading the information. It keeps you engaged and considers the idea of 11 planets. There was also the suggestion of a mnemonic device used to remember the order of the 8 planets. You will have to read this article to find out what it is.

I really enjoyed this SciGuide. I really enjoyed "Stopped Dead in its tracks", Blue Green Algae and its Fossils, Water and Volcanoes-a strange mix and What are Extremophies activities/lessons. This resource will be very useful for many different ages.
