Simpsons in the Classroom

I have used Simpson’s clips for years in my classroom as hooks, theme-based lessons, and to illustrate Mathematical concepts from fractions to Pi using Simpsons Math. Check out my Girls Just Wanna Add Sums Packet and the Simpsons Math site for even more resources on this topic/episode.

Now the Simpsons’ will be invading a Science Classroom near you. From periodic tables to Newton’s Laws, Simpson’s can provide a new perspective (or a frame of reference) on illustrating the not so concrete laws of science (e.g. Angular Momentum, Second Law of Thermodynamics, Metric System, Newton’s First & Third Law, Photon Pressure, Zinc Film, Inelastic Collision, and More…)

Appy Hour: SS/History App-Teasers

Appy Hour will provide you with a fast-paced introductory approach to FREE apps that are appropriate for secondary students. App-teasers for Social Studies/History will be sampled. After this class you will think beyond the concept of an App as simply being a game – you will leave with a menu of appealing concrete lesson ideas you can serve as soon as you are back with your students! An iPad with all required apps will be included for use during the duration of the class.
