Create virtual snowflakes using the simple tools of this Flash-based interactive. Click New Snowflake to access the tools. Be sure to watch the sample snowflake first to understand how to drag the nodes on the starter triangle. Click to add and drag nodes on each line of the triangle. Preview to see your shape replicated and rotated to make a full snowflake using radial symmetry. You can edit it to change how it looks. Add as many nodes as you wish to make more complex designs. Click to name and save your snowflake. You can also print it. Animate the snowflakes to see your creations "falling." Note that "saving" simply puts the snowflake information in the browser cache on your computer and may not actually "save" once you close your browser, depending on the computer settings. "Send to a friend" emails ONLY the website address (not your flake) for your friend to try the snowflake tool.

tag(s): snow (22), symmetry (54), weather (195)

In the Classroom

Explore geometric constructions or simply enjoy some winter fun with this tool. In math, geometry, or art class, explore what happens when a shape is repeated radially. Use this to demonstrate radial symmetry, figure/ground relationships, and the impact of obtuse/acute angles in creating snowflake shapes. Have students create flakes when studying angles. They can screenshot or print them, then write an explanation of why the angles they used created a successful flake. They can even create comparisons of two flakes. With younger students, use the snowflake builder as a writing prompt for a winter story or in lessons on crystals, weather, and more. Save printer ink by taking screenshots (Printscrn button on Windows or ShIft+Command+4 on Mac) to paste the flake images into a slideshow or save as images on your computer. Be sure to share this one on your class website for snow days!

Bring some polar science into your classroom! Find vodcasts (video podcasts) of penguins, polar bears, and more in the video podcasts section of this site. Be sure to review the activities in the Educators Update. Learn the science of polar regions from the physical properties of melting ice to the adaptations of the animals that call the polar region their home. Meet the contributors to the site in the Travelers section.

tag(s): adaptations (17), animals (289), antarctica (29), arctic (45), polar (19)

In the Classroom

Plan a Polar Palooza with your classes! Students can brainstorm questions they have about the polar regions. For example, How do polar animals stay warm in their environment? Choose from activities in the Educators Corner such as "Life in the Cold and Dark" from the drop down menu. Activity pages include background information, objectives, activities to engage students, and exploration activities. Blubber Gloves is a great activity to learn about the physical adaptations of polar animals. Combine winter art projects with the Polar Palooza activities in class. For example, create a collage of animals that have blubber for warmth or a display of polar adaptations. Display artwork online using tools such as Artsonia, reviewed here or Dropr, reviewed here. In music, create handmade instruments that can mimic polar animals and create a one of a kind instrumental score! Record and publish music along with artwork using Roxio, reviewed here. Create awareness campaigns about polar animals and changes being seen as a result of climate change. Try combining activities with other subject areas for a cross-curricular unit. Try some nonfiction reading that focuses on polar animals or encourage students to create their own short stories complete with artwork using a tool such as Bookemon, reviewed here.

Use your pictures and PhotoFunia to create photo collages, flyers, family trees, holiday albums, and more. No registration is needed! PhotoFunia has hundreds of effects and filters. More are added weekly. To add shadows, age your photo, or render it black and white just visit the Filters category.

Write on the sand or graffiti text on the wall. Carve your name on the ground or create your very own road sign using text effects. The program is as easy to use as picking the effect and uploading a photo. Save it to your computer or email it. Try using PhotoFunia online with no registration, or get the free app for iOS or Andriod, and most other smartphones. At the time of this review, all photo effects appeared appropriate for use in the classroom. However, we always suggest you preview the tool before sharing it with students.

tag(s): comics and cartoons (71), DAT device agnostic tool (170), editing (66), images (276), photography (162)

In the Classroom

You do not need to be artistic to transform a personal or stock photo into a stunning work of art or even an amusing image. Adjust any image's color intensity, value, and hue using the filters. Use this tool anytime that photos need to be edited for use in class blogs, newsletters, wikis, or websites. In primary grades, this tool could be useful for teachers to use to edit pictures from a field trip, science experiments, and more. Share the editing process with your younger students using your interactive whiteboard or projector. Edit together! Encourage older students to use this site themselves on images for projects or presentations. Use the features and effects to edit images to fit styles of photos when doing historical reports or to set the mood.

Find over 100,000 unusual and interesting drawings, paintings, photographs and advertisements related to medical and social history through contemporary healthcare and biomedical science. This site is dedicated to the history of health and medicine, and the oldest examples go back two thousand years. Everything is available under Creative Commons licensing. Browse the collection through the galleries or search by keyword. The titles of the galleries are Explore, Favourites, Science, History, Art (for Schools), and Galleries. Under each title, find several categories such as Olympics, Health, World, Pathogens, Cell Division, DNA, Vaccines, Surgery (Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, Modern), Aids Posters, Patterns and Texture, and many more. The site was created in the UK, so some of the spellings may differ from those in American English.

tag(s): creative commons (22), images (276), medicine (70), photography (162)

In the Classroom

History, science, and art teachers can explore the galleries dedicated to those subjects to include pictures in newsletters, blogs, and class websites. Share the site with students on an interactive whiteboard or projector when they need images for projects. Find images from locations you are studying in world cultures or geography class. Find images to use in student online projects such as Bookemon (to create online books) or Superlame (an image editor to add text and thought bubbles). Art teachers can find images for students to use as references or in photomontages (with credit). Use images for writing prompts or even to create descriptive sentences. Have one student describe the image as the other sketches the image. Now compare the described image to the real image. Keep this site as a reference link on your class web page for any time students are creating wikis, blogs, or electronic projects where they need images.

Share and discuss photos or other images in real-time using Live. No registration is required. Live works only on Chrome and Firefox browsers. Drag and drop or upload images from your computer to Live to begin a session. Be sure to allow access to your computer's microphone for online conversations, or use the chat box if you prefer. The real power of LIVE is being able to "narrate" and discuss images orally, though. Copy or tweet the link to share the URL for your session. Once participants enter the session, the site's tools allow options for drawing using the brush tool, watermarks on images, and zooming in and out to share features of images.

In the Classroom

Use Live as an alternative to other screen sharing tools to maintain quality when discussing images. Use it with your 1:1 art class to discuss design principles and techniques in images or works of art. Suggest students use Live when collaborating on group art or media projects. Students can create or alter group products such as logos for their mock companies or political party. World language classes can use an image to spark conversation and vocabulary practice using this online tool, even if they are not in the same location! Set up a LIVE session with a partner class at another school for sharing images and the stories behind them. Share an image of a student's work using a Live session during a parent phone conference.

Homeroom is an online tool and mobile app to share your class photos privately with parents, students, and others. Create an album and invite people to view it. Each time you update it, the members will be notified. When you populate your album with photos, you can also add a comment. Access Homeroom and upload photos on any device. For Initial registration you can use the app (iOs or Android) or register using your Google or Facebook account, or manually using email. Once registered, you can access the tool using any device using your username and password. Invite others from any device or computer by phone number or email address. They will become members and will be able to update your photo albums. You will be alerted about the new content. Albums are private. Only the people with the invite have access to the photos.

In the Classroom

Invite parents and students as you create albums of specific events such as field trips, service projects, hands-on activities, field experiences, class speakers, and more. Anywhere photos can be used to showcase achievement, this service would be a great resource. Use for any project, class explanation of concepts, experiments, or demonstrations. Resource teachers, speech teachers, or world language teachers can collect images into "albums" for students to practice/develop speech and vocabulary. In science class when having students do insect collections, instead of having them collect the actual specimens, have them take pictures using their phones or digital cameras. Have the students upload to the album at home, and then they can create a multimedia project with the pictures and statistics of the specimen. Students can snap a picture anywhere, with any device, and upload to the web to use in class or cooperative groups. This tool would be great for clubs and performance groups as well! Do you send a newsletter home to parents? Try creating a heading made from a collage of your latest class activity. Use a program such as Mosaic Maker, reviewed here, to create a collage. Though the content is private, monitor student photos and comments as nothing would be prohibited by Homeroom. You will be notified of all new content.

In the Classroom

Use this tool anytime photos need to be edited for use on class blogs, wikis, or sites. In primary grades, use this tool to edit pictures from a field trip, science experiments, and more. Share the editing process with your younger students on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Edit the project together! Encourage older students to use this tool on images for projects or presentations. Use it to edit pictures to match historic looking pictures for reports or to set a mood. Of course, you will want to require that students give proper credit for any starter image they obtain from copyright-safe (CC licensed) sources.
