General Resources:

  • Quizlet - Amazing flash cards and study games website with over 7 million free sets of flashcards covering every possible subject. It's a great place to create and play educational games, memorize vocabulary and study online.  Join the 'Hackensack MS 7th Grade Science' group to access flashcards made specifically for our curriculum.  If you have an iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad, Android or Windows based smartphone, there are several apps that can be downloaded (for free) that work with Quizlet.  You are never without your cell phone, so why be without your Quizlet??

  • SMART Exchange - Find lesson plans for your SMART Board and connect with teachers.

  • WPClipArt.com

  • TeacherTube.com - A kind of educational YouTube! (free)

  • UnitedStreaming.com - Great educational videos by Discovery Education (district membership, but try the 30-day free trial)

  • EnchantedLearning.com - Printable diagrams

  • TeachersDomain.org - Multimedia resources for the classroom, sponsored by WGBH Educational Foundation (free)

  • ReadingQuest.org - Reading strategies for more than just Social Studies!  Great graphic organizers.....

  • CutePDF.com - Create professional quality PDF files from almost any printable document. (free)

  • Online Timer/Stopwatch - I use it daily for the timed Do Now questions, as well as other timed assignments.  There are several sounds to choose from.....my classes' favorite is the train horn.

  • Zamzar - Have you ever wanted to show an educational YouTube clip in class, but were blocked by the CyberNannies?  Do you wish that YouTube videos were downloadable?  Well....THEY ARE!  This site will convert any video from a file or url and convert it into a form that you can save and reuse in class over and over and over again!  (Thanks, Adam, for showing it to me!)

  • JeopardyLabs - FANTASTIC internet based Jeopardy game program.  I break my class into 3-4 teams (depending on class size), and each student within a team takes turns answering questions on individual white boards.  The focus is less on competition as it is on individual review for an assessment.  I'd like to give Mr. Harrington a special shout out for showing me this site, and for the donated white boards!
