Thinkfinity boasts free top-line educational resources to strengthen problem-solving, creativity and critical thinking skills for the 21st century. The site offers lesson plans, educational games, activities and more. The gateway page asks if you are a parent, educator or student and the resources are wonderful. Being that its summer, the Afterschool Resources section caught our eye and it is full of of great activities--the selected resources and activities are a must see.

Thinkfinity is a big, bold site. Don't go play if you have an old, slow computer. But if you have the technology, this a site you don't want to miss.

Federal Resources for Educational Excellence

Federal Resources for Educational Excellence (FREE) makes it easier to find teaching and learning resources from the federal government. The site features more than 1,500 federally supported teaching and learning resources in the areas of science, math, history and language arts from dozens of federal agencies. New sites are added regularly. The website was originally conceived in 1997 by a federal working group and launched a year later. It was redesigned and relaunched in November 2006. FREE is among the most popular K-12 websites maintained by the U.S. Department of Education because of the many great resources being offered by participating federal agencies.
