Whether you’re looking to give students inspiration for a science project or simply hooking kids in the beginning of a lesson, add Weird But True (opens in new tab) to your routine! This is another wonderful app from National Geographic (National Parks, Marine Missions,Titanic Timeline). It’s a great way to start off class each day — try sharing a weird but true fact to get your students excited about the world around them.
