A History of Ireland in 100 Objects

(www.100objects.ie/education/)

Age Range: 10-18 (Grades 5-12, with parental supervision)

 

This website from The Royal Irish Academy, The National Museum of Ireland, and The Irish Times is based on a series in The Irish Times by Fintan O’Toole.

Through the use of 100 historical objects, students can learn the fascinating history of Ireland. Fourteen lesson plans have been created for 5th-6th grade children and 5 more for older children (post-primary).

When arriving at today’s link, use the object timeline to select one of the time periods you wish to explore. Once the page opens in a new window, there will be an image of the object and ‘buttons’ to select to learn more. Most objects include the following buttons: 

  • For teachers – lesson plans, resources, and other activities
  • Story – an age-appropriate text about the artifact
  • Worksheets – topic-related worksheets
  • Did you know? – fast facts related to the object
  • Quiz – Test your knowledge of the object with a multiple choice online quiz.
  • Look – See other images related to the object.
  • Read – Read an extract from the book A History of Ireland in 100 Objects

All of the above (except for the Quiz) are downloadable PDFs. The quizzes can be printed using your browser print function. Some lessons also include an audio and video option to encourage more thought and conversation.  


Older students will enjoy browsing through the 100 objects list by selecting “Objects” on the main menu, then selecting the item of interest from the list.

This website provides a unique way of discovering Irish history.

A+ Math Games

(www.aplusmath.com/games/index.html)

Age Range: 5-18 (Grades K-12, with parental supervision)

 

This website contains fun, interactive games for learning basic math facts in addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and geometry.

The games include: 

  • Matho – This is math and bingo combined for “Matho”! Includes game board and games for addition, multiplication and division facts. When you get to the web page, you will see a game board with numbers on it. Below it are questions like “What is 8 x 5?” You do the math, and get the answer – in this case “40”. Then you click on the number 40 on the game board. As soon as you get 5 in a row – you have Matho!
  • Hidden Picture – Choose your subject to get to the game board with numbers on it. Above the game board are math fact problems like “8 – 3?” You find the correct answer on the game board and click on it. If you are correct a piece of the hidden picture is revealed. Once you answer all of the questions correctly – you get to see the whole picture!
  • Math Memory – Click on the type of Math Memory game you’d like to play. On the next screen, you will see 2 game boards. Both boards are covered in question marks. Click on a square on one board, and you will see a math fact like “3 + 3?” Then you click on a square on the other side to try to find the solution. The idea is to try to remember as you click from one side to the next what facts and answers lie beneath each square. Requires concentration and develops good memory skills. Once you clear both boards by finding the solution to each math fact, you win!

These games are a great way to remedy the boredom of drill and practice with basic math facts.

When you finish the games, check out the rest of the site to find flashcards and worksheets and homework help. Highly recommended!
