Next, Free Tech covers "5 Great Activities from Read Write Think." If you're not familiar with Read Write Think, they offer some of the best free elementary language arts lessons around. This post covers a few of their tools, and if you teach elementary LA, it's definitely worth the read.
And Free Tech closes with a post reviewing "Harvest of History: Helping Students Understand Farms." The program is designed to teach elementary students about farms and help show them where their food comes from.
Edudemic also has a nice post on how to "Integrate iPads Into Blooms' Digital Taxonomy With This 'Pedagogy Wheel'" The Pedagogy Wheel was created by Allan Carrington and shows you the best apps for each level of Blooms' Taxonomy. I've embedded it here for your viewing pleasure (click for full size)
Getting Smart closes with a post on "Buidling STEM Skills by Learning Game Design." The article talks about using Game Design Tool Kit to teach students the basics of programming and design while they create games. I'd also recommend checking out GameSalad, it's similar to scratch but more geared towards game/app design and it's also a great free resource to teach students programming.
