Create a message using buildings from all over the world! Check out Geogreeting for a little bit of fun.

Be Creative!!

Draw A Stickman

Draw a Stickman - Inspire creativity. Try this out yourself before you ask your students to give it a go. A great precursor to the FREE iPad app by the same name: Draw a Stickman: EPIC

If you like this then why not try Scribblenauts, where their motto is "THINK IT! DRAW IT! SOLVE IT!"

Discovering Australia: Dreamtime and Beyond

Dorling Kindersley's Find Out!

DK Find Out is a refeature, firstly because it is an awesome website but also because it now works perfectly on an iPad too!

So many high quality annotated diagrams make it a terrific source when investigating informative texts. It also goes hand in hand with the web tool/iPad app ThingLink.

Web Tools

Online Audio Converters

Media.oi is a very simple and easy to use online converter that converts video and audio files to mp3, wavs, wmas, and oggs in varying qualities.

This site does the exact same thing and does it just as well - simply another alternative.
