Bicycles, Chrome, and Science – The Week in Review

Good morning from Maine where the sun is shining and it’s going to be a nice day for outdoor play. Earlier this week we rode our bikes to a little public field near our house and found a bunch of wild strawberries. My daughters want to go back and look for more strawberries so that’s probably what we’ll do after breakfast. I hope that you have something equally fun to do this weekend. 

Speaking of bikes, last Friday was World Bicycle Day and my blog post about was the most popular thing that I’ve published in the last week. That post and others are included below. 

These were the week’s most popular posts:
1. Lessons for World Bicycle Day
2. Five Great Chrome Extensions for Teachers

3. A TED-Ed Lesson for Every Element on the Periodic Table

4. Ten Ways to Use Adobe Creative Cloud Express in School

5. Five Fun Science Games for Kids

6. A Lesson About Money for Students Getting Summer Jobs

7. How to Record Screencasts on Chromebooks Without Extensions
