I have been seeing lots of great doodles created as part of the #marchdoodle created by some of the #clmooc folks. Today’s postcard is created in their honor and includes #lemon, #color, and #submarine.
I’ve been browsing the Digital Public Library of America’s Women in Science Collection and found this interesting photo titled, Chemistry class – women’s from the Atlanta University, Robert Woodruff Library. The description says that these are unidentified students in a chemistry class. I think it would be a great prompt for students to learn more about science education for both women and African American women in particular. The date range is 1862 – 1923. Who are these students? Where might be they be studying chemistry?
This is an interactive postcard, also known as a slide show…
I am working on my keynote and continuing to explore the Digital Public Library. I checked out the slide deck for Community Representatives and found the lovely Booklover’s Map of America. It makes a great interactive activity when slotted in as the background of a Google Slide. Please consider adding your favorite author or book. Just click on the map and it will take you to the editable slide. I added Ivan Doig to the Two Medicine region of southeastern Montana. He is one of my favorites, a wonderful storyteller and country philosopher.
The conference finally got the best of me and I fell asleep before creating my postcard. So, here are two, both celebrating Pi Day in a different way.

And this lithograph of pi is part of a set of greek letters that are associated with two names: Ovide Reynard and Jean Jacques Theodore Sauve. I couldn’t find any real information about either of them and I thought this might be an interesting way to challenge students to do research, maybe as an engaging starter for a unit:
