STEM, Music, and Spring - The Week in Review

Good morning from Maine where spring is in the air and lots of snow is still on the ground. Some of my favorite days of the year happen now when there's still snow on the ground but it's warm enough during the day to have fun in the sun. In fact, that's what I did yesterday afternoon when I snapped this picture at Sunday River and tagged it #happyplacefound. And when my youngest daughter wakes up from her nap we'll go for a walk to see how the woods are starting to come alive with signs of spring. Wherever you are this weekend, I hope that you get some refreshing time outside too.

Here are this week's most popular posts:
1. Free Hands-on STEM Lesson Plans and Projects
2. How to Find Free Music for Classroom Projects
3. - A Video Whiteboard for Math Students
