Thing 6:

I created a trading card. As a librarian and a teacher, students can use the trading card for many lessons. They can research poets and use the trading card to enter info about the poet's life, poems, and awards. We used this idea on our midterm lesson where students posted the trading card among other information on a class wiki. In science, they can research a scientist or a particular type of animal and make a trading card. History can use this method for people, battles or places of import.

One of the aps that caught my attention on Big Huge Labs is the Mapmaker. I made a map of all the states I have visited.
