Crayon Physics

What makes Crayon Physics so entertaining is that there are a number of different ways to solve each level, thanks to the fact that no one is going to draw the same things in exactly the same way. It requires players to be creative and solve each puzzle through whatever means they can conceive, as opposed to only having one convoluted method as the only solution.

You can download a demo version free but you must purchase the full version of the game.

We have all heard of Ted Talks.  Now teachers can utilize Ted Ed for their classrooms.  Videos are categorized by topics and subject areas, have questions and deeper thinking activities to go with the videos, allow you to use You Tube videos in the same fashion, and even allow you to “FLIP” your lessons by altering content and saving a unique URL.  I am impressed with this learning tool for middle and high school students.
