Earlier this week I started our Thanksgiving feast with some fabulous freebies for teachers. As is the case at any good Thanksgiving dinner, we’re now serving seconds. I hope you have room on your plate for a few more goodies!
Heifer International offers dozens of free, standards-based lessons and activities that you can use to teach students about their world neighbors and take action to end world hunger and poverty. Click here now to download the materials or to request a free kit. Plus Heifer has just launched the Heifer Experience Video Contest. Make a video showing how giving the gift of a cow, a goat, a camel, or another animal can help someone in poverty become self-reliant. Click here to see contest details. The winner receives a trip to see firsthand the difference that a Heifer gift can make!
Bullying has been a big topic in the news. The Committee for Children offers free cyber bullying prevention lessons. Click here now to access the activities, which include lessons to teach in class, send-home materials, and songs. (Please note that you must complete a short registration form to download the materials.)
The DimensionsU Games National Scholarship Tournament is now underway! Students in grades 3-8 compete in online math games to build skills and be eligible for more than 1,000 prizes, including a $50,000 scholarship. Click here now! Be sure to check out the free science games at the site too.
Okay, I’m pushing myself back from the freebies buffet now. Check back soon for another feast of contests and giveaways for you and your students!
Have a wonderful holiday!
