I didn’t learn about ThingLink until a few months into this school year… and now, I’m hooked! Every unit of study since, I’ve created an interactive ThingLink for students to reference as an anchoring activity, study guide, and “pre-teaching” tool. As my students are currently basking in spring break relaxation, I’ve been preparing this image to help them get focused on the morning that dreaded alarm clock sounds after 9 days off!

The U.S. National Archives Experience Digital Vaults (pictured above) offers students a good introduction to discovering and working with primary source materials. Rather than turning kids loose on millions of records in the National Archives, Digital Vaults focuses on a curated collection of 1,200 items.
Within the site, there are activities designed to help students discover important connections between primary sources. One section, Pathways Challenges, provides quizzes that ask kids to analyze a specific resource and then find the related document within the collection. Teachers and students can create their own quizzes or take advantage of the premade challenges.
Students who create free Digital Vaults accounts can collect primary source documents and images and use them to create digital posters and videos within the available templates.
You see moments of brilliance every day: a teacher breaks through to a student, a student creates something wonderful on a device or uses some new technology, a community arms themselves with knowledge.
I was facilitating a workshop and one of the participants said Daniel Pink’s Drive was the most powerful and influential book she has read this year. I immediately ordered it on Amazon, and I’m thrilled I did!
I make QR codes using free QR code generators like QRStuff.com and distribute them to my students as a scavenger hunt. I’ll have questions ready for each website so students are focused as they conduct Internet research. You can post these QR codes around the classroom, create QR stations, or simply give them to your students with their scavenger hunt activity sheet.
