We who are the teachers should be able to aggregate and create lessons that fit the learning landscape of our students not just pick one vendor's ideas. There are many games I could have featured here but they were all kinda male centered to me. Maybe I am too sensitive. There are also some great basic software projects that help you to identify dinosaurs. We must be innovative in our learning and sharing knowledge. It was fun for my class to learn from a dinosaur scientist in the Smithsonian.

How to Read a (Good) Map

How to Read a (Good) Map | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

"Just as you shouldn’t trust everything you read or see on television, you should never blindly trust information just because it is on a map. All maps posit arguments. Maps present information about how something is. All maps posit arguments. Maps present information about how something is. Just as there are no unbiased arguments, there are no unbiased maps."
