I heard this story on the way to work one morning and I thought, "This sounds like something that our History teachers would like." Play this for your students now so that when they're 50 yrs old and reading about this History of our current conflicts that they can see if History is kinder or harsher on us with the passing of time.See the related articles below this one, as well.

I think I picked this little gem up from the math tag at del.icio.us. These are from the Broward County Public Schools. On this same page are writing prompts, too. Looks like one per day. Gee... I wonder where they could write? Their blogs, you say? Great idea! I like the way you think. :-)
Cheers to the Broward County schools for posting these in the interest of better education for the children everywhere.

Do you know a business teacher who teaches a lot of excel? This program
offers a free version with limited features, as well as a purchased
full-featured program. Of course that one runs about $1500. YIKES!!
But, check out the freebie version. I'm told it's still pretty cool. It
turns your data into VERY cool charts, with sliders, dials, and more.
