1. If you are an elementary school teacher you MUST follow Keith Schoch’s amazing blog- Teach with Picture Books. I’m serious- just stop reading this silly blog and go there right now!
2. Keith recently put together a wonderful post on teaching about invention using picture books. He highlights some resources that consider invention from a variety of cultural perspectives… not just the typical white male perspective. Good stuff!
The Teaching Invention post also provides some links on invention: interactives, games, projects, and more. I will highlight a few of these in some upcoming posts.
