I created a Halloween Ditty to be read aloud to children by parents, grandparents, teachers, etc. pre- or post-Halloween. See my Buncee Board at https://app.edu.buncee.com/creation/v3/9545a26adc3a4998b46d9053a7250865.

Have you ever wondered what birds are saying as they sing, call, quack, and drum? With these dynamic activities from Bird Sleuth, you and your students will investigate why and how birds communicate and learn to appreciate the songs you hear everyday. Your download includes the Lesson Plans and Student Journal.
This lesson plan from Bird Sleuth, composed of three activities, explores modern birds and their dinosaur ancestors, adaptions for flight, and the relationship between structure and function. This free lesson plan is perfect for students grade 6-8 and those learning about evolution or adaptations!
Based on the Edutopia article, "I Wonder" Questions: Harnessing the Power of Inquiry", have students create an "I Wonder Journal" to channel their wonder and impact their learning.

The American Libraries collection includes material contributed from across the United States. Institutions range from the Library of Congress to many local public libraries. As a whole, this collection of material brings holdings that cover many facets of American life and scholarship into the public domain
Digital Public Library of America (https://dp.la) is a free national digital library that provides access to millions of materials from libraries, archives, and museums across the United States. With over 29 million items representing collections of more than 3,000 cultural heritage institutions, the possibilities for research are endless. How can you get started? We created an Education Guide to DPLA, which offers an overview of what we have to offer for educators and students.
A selection of interactive prompts pulled from Art21’s Educators’ Guides, the Learning Library offers both discussion questions and hands-on activities in relation to Art21 artists and film segments.
