September’s Updated “Best” Lists
I am constantly adding new resources to my over 1,700 categorized “Best Lists.
I also regularly “cull” through the lists to weed-out dead links, but haven’t been very systematic about doing that task.
So, I’ve started to go through them and highlight the ones that I’ve gotten around to completely cleaning-up and revising. I’ve completed this process well over 300 lists over the past eighteen months.
Here are a list of them from this month (you can see previous compilations here):
The Best Sites For Learning How To Tell Time
The Best Sites For Images Of Fall Foliage (& For Teaching About The Season)
The Best Online Geography Games
The Best Sites For Learning About Planets & Space
