I found this for my Food pyramid Project. It is an except from Tershia D'Elgin's Book What Should I Eat?: A Complete Guide to the New Food Pyramid.

WHat I Should Eat a Complete Guide To The New Food Pyramid

It is only a preview but the introduction gives some relevant information.

I like to use music to entertain and inspire. I would use this to kick of an learning activity or a quest.

Text: I design many of my lessons using a variety of approaches to teach a concept. This allows the learner to explore and select which activities they want to do as long as they are able to show they understand the objective. This one is how to tell the difference between a crocodile and an alligator. Do you know the difference?

For images, I like to add animation as well. It helps to catch the learners attention. There are a few nice sites for animation; Heather's Animations and Animation Library are two of my favorites.
Here is a Glog that I made for the sites and sounds of the letters f, b, and c.

Videos as you may have noticed are an important piece of my Glogs. Many are from Youtube - some that I make or students make for these lessons. It is also why it is imperative that we stop the blocking of educational sites and trust that the learners know, from your modeling, how to use the resource properly. The Glog that I am adding here is unfinished. I started with a video I shared with my students in Africa. From that, they are adding their own videos to help teach the topic. Keep an eye on it as they add more to this lesson.

One of my favorite books growing up was THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

So whenI saw it was in our 6th grade reading book I was excited. I made sure to do that lesson every semester. Well I don't teach that class anymore, but thanks to 3DGL and OER I can again. So here is a link tho the story on project gutenberg. We will read the story and complete the worksheets that I must have saved somewhere. I also have this in an epub version on our school iPads.

Here is a video I could use in My History of Computing Quest Chain. It would be good addendum to the end of the PC revolutionand an introduction to computing becoming pervasive in our lives.

I can see using this image to enhance question sets for math in ASSISTments. Most of the question sets don't have color in them. This collection of images would enhance the student experience and analysis of charts and graphs. I can also see using this image for creating an infographic project as well.

"INFOGRAPHICS VECTOR PACK.eps." INFOGRAPHICS VECTOR PACK. N.p., 2 Feb. 2014. Web. 05 Feb. 2014. <http://www.vectorportal.com/subcategory/158/INFOGRAPHICS-VECTOR-PACK.eps/ifile/12251/detailtest.asp>.

Another resource that I didn't see on the list is... http://www.archives.gov/research/ - American Historic Photos are available in the search.

I teacher ICT so we discuss digital citizenship and what it means to be a responsible digital citizen. This includes protecting your information online. The following video would be good to use with my 5th grade students.

This is a great video overview. I ran an after school club last year on video game design. This would have been a great catalyst for that.

I found this resource on what is a blog.
http://www.wisc-online.com/Objects/ViewObject.aspx?ID=ETO105

list the learning objective of the lesson the resource supports,

This image can be used as part of a unit study on the American Revolution. It would meet the following learning objectives:

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH.6-8.1
Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of primary and secondary sources.

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH.6-8.2
Determine the central ideas or information of a primary or secondary source; provide an accurate summary of the source distinct from prior knowledge or opinions.

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH.6-8.7
Integrate visual information (e.g., in charts, graphs, photographs, videos, or maps) with other information in print and digital texts.

Waterfall sound clip
This is just one of many possible clips that could be used for this project.

"Waterfall 02 (loop).MP3 by VKProduktion." Freesound.org. N.p., 6 Jan. 2014. Web. 11 June 2014. <http://www.freesound.org/people/VKProduktion/sounds/215711/>.

This resource could be used as part of a Scratch Digital Animation lesson. Students could download the file to add audio background while they are describing the land feature of a waterfall.

It would support the following NETS Standards

Communication and collaboration

Students use digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively, including at a distance, to support individual learning and contribute to the learning of others.
a. Interact, collaborate, and publish with peers,
experts, or others employing a variety of digital environments and media
b. Communicate information and ideas effectively to multiple audiences using a variety of media and formats.

Digital Citizenship
- The would be required to cite their sources.
