It was on my To Do List all summer: WRITE a blog post on teaching resources for the Olympics. Alas, time got away from me and suddenly there was the Opening Ceremony. What a show!

The list is endless.
Last week one of my favorite bloggers, Virtual Glenn at History Tech,shared an excellent list of resources for all of us in his weekly post. Check out this extensive list of resources.
