Obama Cartoons: Obama and Ahmadinejad Talk Timetables



I got the idea for this cartoon while listening to all the media coverage of the U.N. stuff and Iran’s new but not so new facility that apparently has been known about for some time or at least the building of it has been known. Now that it is complete its news I guess. Let me see if I can follow the logic here. They are building a facility, we know they are, they know we know they are, they put a big message on the roof of it for all satellites to see and this is where they are developing a nuclear bomb……..O.K. if you say so. It just seems more likely that the development of bomb grade material would be someplace a little more secret. Who knows? Anyway with Ahmadinejad firing off or excuse me, “testing”, missle systems and the timing and all, this cartoon popped in to the front of my mind. Enjoy and have a great day!

Scarecrow Totem Pole Project - the next step



Our third-grade totem pole scarecrow is going to look most excellent. As I mentioned earlier, I showed the kids some examples of Haida art, along with some sample eyes, noses and mouths that I put together on one page.

I pointed out how bright and bold the Haida designs are, and encouraged them to go for it - then out came the foamies and scissors and glue and pens.

We've got wings for our owl at the top, and faces for pumpkins, and even bats to put on there.

Bear in mind these kids did all of this in about 40 minutes. They got the concept, and they went for it.  I love that.

There's a bunch more not shown here - time for me to get out the glue gun and see how this whole thing is going to stay together - without toppling or melting or anything like that. I told them my job is to get the thing to stand up, their job is to make it look cool. They did theirs, now I've got some engineering to do.

Learning Landscapes

This is so simple it's almost embarrassing that schools don't have these everywhere.

It's a grid, with numbers, used to play a ton of games.

So there's math, and space, and running, and yelling.

You can do musical chairs, or math problems, or geography, or work individually, or in teams...

Anyway take a look at Learning Landscape. What a cool playground.
