Decimals and John Smith

In my 5th grade class, we're working with decimals in math and studying exploration in social studies. I wanted to share two cool links that help with both subjects:

Decimal Spy Guys is a SmartBoard math lesson from Learn Alberta that introduces decimals. When you include spies and baseball in your lesson, you have a winner.

On the Trail of Captain John Smith is an animated interactive lesson from National Geographic that provides an overview of the explorations led by this English captain famous for helping start the Jamestown settlement. I like the thought questions interspersed with the narrative. These questions make for a good lesson on cause and effect.
