Phonics charts and blends charts are a great way to teach difficult concepts to beginning readers. Keep them around the classroom (or accessible at home), and your students will be able to use them independently for increased confidence and learning!
These posters can help remind your students what it is to be a good self-manger, effective participator, creative thinker, reflective learner, independent enquirer and a good team member.
The following graphics contain:1. 21st Century Skills and their subskills2. 21st Century Skills, their subskills and connections to Factors Affecting Student Learning (FASA)

Although some of the content is American, there are still lots of options for teachers, parents and students who live in Canada!
These free web based tools help teachers to demystify the data and create authentic learning experiences for students. The goal is to have students "ask questions to clarify evidence of the factors that have caused the rise in global temperatures over the past century". The field of climate change is very dynamic and always changing. These six tools incorporate up-to-date practices and can be used immediately in the classroom to help students become true climate change scientists:
- MIT Climate Science, Risk and Solutions (9-12) - Gives students a comprehensive look
- NASA Global Climate Change - Vital Signs of the Planet (6-12) - Explore satellite evidence
- Climate Kids - NASA's Eyes on the Earth (3-6) - Engage early learners
- Global Oneness Project (9-12) - Build empathy
- Earth-Now 6-12 - Analyze real data
- Our Climate Our Future (6-12) - Inspire action

NASA's Earth Observatory "Aircraft Contrails" webpage summarizes the key mechanism, measurements, and predictions of how cirrus clouds produced by contrails contribute to global warming. The page also includes an image showing a large number of contrails produced over the southeastern U. S.
As the environmental, economic, and political consequences of climate change are felt in Alaska, the Arctic, and throughout the world, we have much to learn from both the traditional knowledge of Native peoples and ongoing scientific research. These two methods of observing nature and solving the challenges of survival can provide complementary perspectives on these issues. This collection looks at Alaska’s unique geology and the impact of development and climate change using both of these tools, and features Alaska Native scientists who are working toward solutions.
Collections to explore:
- Traditional Way of Knowing (spirit, air, fire, water, earth)
- Earth as a System (atmosphere, biosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere)
The site includes the ability to switch to student view, which will take you to many other PBS Learning resources.

Students will observe dance movements depicted in a drawing and a painting. Partners will use simple lines to draw their partner's movements and paint dance costumes on the figures using various brushstrokes. Students will write a persuasive speech to the school superintendent explaining why they believe dance should be a regular part of the curriculum. They will then model dance movements for classmates in teams of four and recite their persuasive speech to the class.
Students will analyze and describe a painting depicting a family. They will discuss similarities and differences between the setting of the painting and where they live. Then students will create a sculpture of their family doing an activity together and also create a diorama of a room in their home.
