Wimbledon is in June (my Uncle Eddie’s favorite event of the year). If you are homeschooling this summer (like I do in the summer – good parents teach) – here are some cool things you can use to share with others. Lessons relating to Wimbledon and Tennis.
Lots of ideas for Father’s Day. Parents will find ideas here as well as teachers.If your child is already out of school, help them make something for Dad that is special andlearn at the same time. I like the “my Dad” lesson where kids draw a picture of Dadand answer questions about him. My son did something similar for me and it meant a lot.
June events include D-day, Father’s Day, Tour de France, World Environment Day, the outbreak of the first world war, and Wimbledon. This website has links to lesson plans for these events and more.
This page has guides that you can download by age level for how you can use the World Wonders project in your classroom. You’ll want to get the PDF and email it to all of the history teachers so they can import it into their ebook reader for sure. (Of course you can print if you don’t have a way to distribute epaper.) there are also some suggested topics like “How the Romans Lived,” “the Industrial Revolution,” and the “Italian Renaissance” along with tour points.
So, in this example of a World Wonder – Shark Bay in Australia – You can see a description on the right. There is an information tab, a link to videos about the area, a link to photos about the area and away to explore nearby sites. If you’re going on vacation to an area with a local wonder, it might be a great thing to explore before you explore so you can get the most out of your trip.
Google has released their world wonders website as part of the “Google Cultural Institute” website. This is a definite “must investigate” over the summer. Click on education in the top right to see how you can integrate it into learning. There are many points all over the globe. Fascinating. experience. The museum is online.
If you’re a teacher and you love Pinterest, Melissa Alonzo-Dillard is a must-follow on Pinterest. She has so many ideas and fascinating boards. (I have a Pinterest 101 post you can search for to be able to get an invite. It is pretty simple, just go on facebook and like pinterest and see who your friends are who like Pinterest too an ask them – or just email vicki [at] coolcatteacher [dot] com and I’ll invite you.
