“Travel costs from real people.” Plan and track travel spending here, using the site’s tools. Enter a city’s name and get a wealth of information including average daily costs and user submitted tips.
From a teacher at Southside “Their video library offers educators a wide range of subjects for grades K-12. The videos also include information on alignment with Common Core State Standards and ancillary material for teachers to use in their own classrooms.  I was able to find a decimal activity and the pages were provided so that I could quickly make the activity.  It is a good resource to check out over the summer.”
What Should I Read Next?
Type a title/author and come up with a list of suggested titles.
Those Kids Today
Interesting info-graphic about the differences between kids in 1982 and in 2012. Pretty neat. The stats toward the middle/bottom are most interesting in terms of education.
