a couple of cool things

Hi All: here are a couple of cool resources that you might find of interest. The First comes from Google Search. This is a group of lessons and challenges to support your students in becoming better web searchers. I am especially excited by the  challenges section . Even though Google is certainly an American intuition they recognize Geography as an area. This are some really cool challenges that will benefit all your students.
Help your students become better searchers
Web search can be a remarkable tool for students, and a bit of instruction in how to search for academic sources will help your students become critical thinkers and independent learners.
With the materials on this site, you can help your students become skilled searchers- whether they're just starting out with search, or ready for more advanced training.
And thank you Taina Kanera for passing this on from the Huffington Post
This is a link to great interactive before and after images of Hurricane Sandy. As you move the line along the image you can see the before and after split.
