is free to use in just about any manner that a teacher or student could think of. The only prohibited use that I read was that you cannot sell the images themselves, otherwise you can use them however you see fit. To find images you can search by keyword or browse through the tag cloud.

There are different effects from the Party Printer site that you can choose to have your writing in that shape. I LOVE WRITING! That is what my students say when we publish in a fun way.

Then they copied and pasted their text to the[ http://www.festisite.com/text-layout/ ]Party Printer online to create the heart shape. The web site does all the formatting for you!
he first activity (Grade 1-4) allows students to predict if Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow. This activity uses a neat little table trick developed by yours truly that will make words magically appear after the students drag their choice into the table. When the students are finished, they count the number and then write down the percent for each choice. Teachers will need to change the student names in the table and also duplicate the page as many times as necessary. (Idea inspired by Silvia Tolisano on her blog Langwitches)
The second activity (Grade 1 - 4) is a fun little puzzle of a groundhog developed by Jeni F. after she took my Groundhog PuzzleNotebook Applications - Create a Puzzle course.
The third activity (Grade K-2) was also created by Jeni F. and it let's students guess the different parts of a groundhog.
The last activity (Grade 3-6) is a Punxsutawney Phil trivia game with ten questions. Students touch on the answer they think is correct. If they get it right, the answer will begin to flash.

MapSkip makes the world a canvas for our stories and photos.
It is an ancient human instinct to share our life stories with others, as the paintings and hand prints in stone-age caves show.
And many of our stories are about places. Where we fell in love, had the dream vacation, took that great picture or, well, joined the rebellion. And then there are the many other places that anchor our lives - where we live, eat, work and have fun.
Join the MapSkip community in exploring the world through shared stories, pictures, videos and sound recordings about all the places in our lives. History
