>With the technology and communication the world seems like it is getting smaller. It is a good idea to teach students some geography and where is the world countries are located on the globe. During transitions times play Geo Games on your SMARTBoard. Engage the whole classroom.
>I came across a great treasure called StudyLadder it has tons of curriculum based interactives/printable/videos. You have to sign up but it is free for teachers and a class of 30 students. Awesome resource if you have an SMARTBoard.
