The Week in Review - It's Ski Season!

Good morning from Maine where the leaves still show some signs of autumn, but they're fading fast. A sure sign that winter is almost here is that the local ski resort opened for skiing this week. I haven't been skiing yet this season, but that will change soon. The key to surviving Maine winters is to embrace all of the opportunities for recreation that the weather provides. Otherwise, you just go crazy in the house. Of course, that can be said for just about any season. Getting outside in the fresh air can lower your stress level and is just plain fun. So wherever you are this weekend, I hope that you make time to have fun outdoors.

Here are this week's most popular posts:
1. How to Access Thousands of Free eBooks for Kids
2. How to Create a Word Cloud in Google Documents
3. Candy Crime Scene - A Science Lesson
4. 70 Google Apps Video Tutorials
5. Slides from Colonial Tech Conference #techcsd #delachat
6. How to Duplicate and Edit Public Kahoot Quizzes
7. 12 Good Resources for Teaching Digital Citizenship - A PDF Handout
