A FUN, collaborative, student centered activity where students discover for themselves how the Periodic Table was organized! Students work together to discover the best way to organize colored/numbered shape pieces. All you need for this activity is a color printer, sandwich bags (or paper clips) and a prize for the winning group (not totally necessary, but fun). Handout and lesson plan included. This is the BEST activity for introducing the Periodic Table EVER! by estelle

Here’s another pasta measuring gadget but with a sense of humor! Are you feeding a horse? Or, perhaps just 2 adults and a child? The horse actually measures for 4 people, but I love the quirky way this was designed. by araceli

Number Playdough Mats with Ten Frames (from A Differentiated Kindergarten) This seems like a really fun activity that could be used for math during community workers unit. If you use different community workers cars for different numbers and make each of them fun to look at and interesting to the students.  Plus what kids kindergarten aged wouldn't love to work with playdough. by limeyey

Love this idea! I think I'll use this concept for Mother's Day gifts... Fold some colorful card-stock paper in half and glue the photo on the front, use hand-crafted flowers instead of lollipops, decorate, and inside students can write a little poem or note to mom :) by tanya

Love the font and simplicity of the design. Note the pattern and texture that was designed for the brand. I also love the idea of possibly having a symbol to go along with the logo. Not sure what it would be but I love how the color in the anchor is faded in parts. Makes it look like a real piece of metal. LoVe! by kerry

Love this idea to teach kids giving a book a chance.  "Blind Date with a Book"  Activity for independent reading.  Wrap up books and decorate with key words that relate to each.  Students pick a book, unwrap it, record it and read for 30 pages.  Good date=keep it, finish it, review it.  Bad date=return it, and write about why it wasn't the book for you.  Great "get to know yourself as a reader" activity!  I am SO doing this! by juliana
