It’s almost time for Amazon Prime Day! Is Amazon Prime Day for Teachers too? You bet!
I’m a big fan of Amazon — have you heard the story of when I bought 1,000 worms on Amazon? Well… I shared it at ISTE this year and yes, you can buy worms for your classroom compost bin on Amazon… (scroll down for the links)
Since it’s a big Amazon week, I put together a list of favorites I hope you’ll enjoy. Feel free to share this link with a friend or comment with a favorite at the bottom of this post!
