* If you could interview anyone in the world, dead or alive, what questions would you ask him/her?

* What questions do you have for your future self?

* Have you ever wondered how your grandparents met? What questions do you have about their first meeting?

* What are some of the most important questions you should ask when you are lost?

*Think about what you want to be doing or who you want to be when you grow up. What questions do you have for someone who is doing those things today?

* Write down some of the burning questions you’ve always wanted to ask and the ones that were never answered.

* What questions would you ask an alien?

* If animals could talk, what are some of the questions you would ask them?

by J MASON EMERSON

Pre-Kindergarten – 12th Grade

 

 

Aardvarks Clip Art And Reading Pack has 32 public domain images of aardvarks. There are color photos and black and white drawings. Insofar as instructions or suggestions go, you can enlarge or shrink the public domain images’ sizes, move the images around, etc. The images are handy for any classroom (Pre-K through higher ed) and any age or ability level but teachers of art and natural studies in science will likely regard them as being of special interest. Teachers of Pre-K students up will find them handy for using as reward stickers, for classroom décor, etc.

Sources for the aardvark public domain clip art here and in other similar publications include wpclipart.com, clker.com, wikipedia.org, plates from the 1800s works of John Gould, John James Audubon, various federal government agencies, and a few from myself. To summarize:

Contents: Aardvark Images (32, public domain); Quick Facts About Ardvaarks in first English then non-Castillian, Latin American Spanish which should help Spanish-speaking students in regular classes or ESL; Aardvark In Multiple Languages; Aardvark Board Game Template (similar to Candyland or Aggravation); 20 Ways To Teach With Clip Art About Aardvarks Etc; Details For Educational Games (including for teaching about aardvarks; Aardvarks Word Search; Answers Key For Aardvarks Word Search; True-False Test About Aardvarks.

If you don’t have ELL’s now, then you may later. This is dedicated to my wife Barbara, a science teacher for 28 years.

We Teach So Hard…Episode 9: The Lies Teachers Believe Series, Lie #2 – Nice Girls Don’t Speak Up

 

Girl! Shut your mouth! Ever have anyone tell you that? Nice girls don’t talk politics. Nice girls don’t stand up when they’re being abused by employers.
