Geography, Monsters, and Drawings - The Week in Review

Good morning from Maine where the sun is rising and it's a brisk 29F as I sip my dark roast coffee. It was a busy week here my little part of the world. We had two birthdays in my house, we all fought off little colds, and I announced a new course that I'm super excited about hosting in November

This weekend I have hours of leaf blowing and raking ahead of me. But I'll be sure to make time for riding bikes with my kids and taking our dogs for some walks in the woods. This is the best time of year to explore the Maine woods. I hope that you have an equally fun weekend ahead of you. 

These were the week's most popular posts:
1. GeoGeek AR - An Augmented Reality Geography Game
2. How to Catch Monsters - A Halloween Play Script
3. Five Google Workspace Tips That Can Make Your Day Better
4. C-SPAN Offers a Free Electoral College Poster
5. Halloween-themed Physical Education Lesson Plans
6. Five Ways QR Codes Can Be Helpful in Your School
7. Another Good Place to Find Free Drawings for Classroom Projects
