a very interesting article, something to stimulate the brain and make us think. A great article to show students if they finish their work early and you need something to keep them entertained.

These are very interesting facts that would be a good hook to use in a class when you are talking about mapping.

Geography Teachers' Association of Victoria Inc. (GTAV)'s curator insight, March 14, 2013 9:08 PM

This site allows you to 'paint' with words. Simply type in the text (a single word or a longer passage) then choose a text size and colour. Click on the main screen, move your mouse and the words will be 'painted'.

You can save your work too.

Tony Hall's curator insight, March 15, 2013 1:15 AM

This is seriously cool! Developed by Tim Holman, along with a bunch of other really cool things, Texter lets you create images with words. In lots of different colours:) My first thought was to use Texter when I give my learners new vocabulary at the start of a unit. After they have developed understanding of the new vocab I want to challenge them to creat an image using the words to illustrate the meaning of the words. Any thought?

Why it is important to use your senses and make your own mind up about things. No wonder science is so often counter current.

Year 2: People are connected to many places

CD - The definition of places as parts of the Earth’s surface that have been given meaning by people, and how places can be defined at a variety of scales.

 

Great activity for students to get an idea of place and how 'their place' fits in.

Such a great idea! What a pity it's called a 'Padagogy Wheel' or is that a reference to the inclusion of iPad apps? At first glance looks like a bad spelling error! Well done for combining all these concepts...very useful graphic tool for teachers and learners.
