Botham’s Guide to Bread March 17, 2008

Posted by admin in : Design & Technology , 1 comment so far

This site, from Yorkshire bakers Botham’s, is really useful for those classes that are looking at making bread in their design & technology lessons. There’s information about how bread is made commercially, a history of bread through the ages and some really simple bread recipes. It’s obviously been around on the Internet for quite some time but I think that it’s still worth taking a look at.

Boris Kester and Nana Bjørnlund have put together this great geography website which collects together stunning photographs, useful images and other information about countries all over the world.

Nana writes:

We have created a site with thousands of pictures from more than 85 countries in the world. The site is meant as a tool for teachers and students, and anyone else who is interested in learning about the world via our visual material and written text. Our images are made easy to use by being divided into categories such as people, houses, transportation, food, and much more. Other educational features on our site are quizzes, images of flags, maps, language samples, images of currencies and other information. We hope you will find our site useful, and if you have suggestions or picture/text contributions (e.g. as part of a school project) let us know, and we will get back to you. We will gladly receive your feedback.

I’ve mentioned the super webcomic, Sheldon, before. Today’s strip is great for lovers (and haters!) of Facebook.
