Recently Google has made some really cool updates to the Google Arts & Culture app for both iOS and Android. One of the most popular updates is the 'Is my portrait in a museum feature?' This little addition is something that can be used for a Friday Fun Day Activity, a indoor recess activity, or a way to get students to explore famous artwork from around the work. Watch the video below to see exactly how to use the Google Arts & Culture app.
A favorite craft of young children is perler beads. Don't remember perler beads? Those were those little tiny cylinder shaped beads that you arranged on a little peg board. Once arranged you broke out the clothes iron and melted the beads a tad to keep them together.
Breaking out an iron in a middle of clothes though may not be the best idea, or having books of perler beads spilled across your floor may not make you to happy. So to still get the creativity of perler beads without the mess try using the Perler Beads Google Sheet template here: Perler Beads - Halloween.
Learners can use the different editing formatting tools inside Google Sheets to create the amazing scenes. You can see a synopsis of the different tools below:

One of the most amazing parts is you can also tour museums from around the world using Google Street View. So instead of just talking about ancient Greek culture, you can take students on a virtual field trip to the Acropolis Museum in Athens!
Greek culture not your thing? Well, how about instead of just talking about how bad the Milwaukee Brewers are, take students to Cooperstown and let them see US history through the eyes of baseball.
