Museum Madness!

Image result for museum madness -mecca -game

I have recently added a new page to my Web Resource Hoarder's website--

 As with any web page, it is always a work in progress.

I have finished most of the Art Museum links. There is a list of 25 of the Top Art Museums Worldwide and a list of the major Art Museums in Ohio. If you are wondering "why Ohio?", it is because there are so many good ones there and also I live there.

For the Science teacher's I have a list of over 25 of the top Natural History and Science Museums. The institutions included cover, but are not limited to, a variety of subject areas:

  • Natural History
  • Science
  • Zoology
  • Botany
  • Geology
  • Physics
  • Astronomy
  • Archaeology 
  • Physical Anthropology
  • Genetics
  • And of course every elementary student's favorite-- Dinosaurs!!
Remember as with all of my web pages I have a few requests:
  1. Please share the links with your students, fellow teachers, colleagues, family and friends.
  2. If you find a bad please email me so I can fix it.
  3. If you have a favorite website that is not listed please send me information so I can consider adding it to my site (remember all sites must be free or at least have a significant amount of free content).

Welcome to Web Resource Hoarder Blog and the companion website at

  • What is the Web Resource Hoarder (WRH)?
    • The Web Resource Hoarder is a Website and now also a Blog.
    • The site started out as a way to share K-12 Education Technology resources I was creating and curating at SPARCC. The target audiences were K-12 Teachers and Students. It was originally called the Tech Web Resources site.
    • As I created and found more and more resources the site, like many of my projects, it took on a life of its own. As the site grew in size, my colleague Eric Cuts (writer of the excellent Ed Tech Blog - Control Alt Achieve), gave it the moniker "Web Resource Hoarder". 
    • For a site to be link to from WRH it must offer free content and/or services. It is OK to also have paid content, but there must be a significant and useful amount of free content/services 
  • What do the site and blog cover?
    • G-Suite (originally Google Apps for Education - GAFE) Resources including usage, tips, classroom projects and more.
    • Learn Something New Every Day
    • Searching & Research
    • Free eBooks, Educational Videos, Podcasts, etc.
    • Teacher Resources and PLN
    • Content Area Resources (aka Literacies). Each of the pages has instructional material & learning resources for students. Areas include:
      • Language Arts & Textual
      • Mathematical at Analytic
      • Scientific
      • Social Studies, History, Government, Geography & Spatial
      • News, Media Literacy & Political
      • Visual Literacy
      • Arts & Music
      • Information & Digital 
      • Cultural 
      • Family & Consumer Sciences, Health & Cooking
      • Financial Literacy
      • World Languages & ELL 
      • Gifted
    • Curriculum
    • Copyright, Plagiarism, Fair Use, CC at Piracy
    • Differentiation
    • Video Resources
    • Spreadsheets
    • Esotechteric (Everything for Tech Geeks)
    • Time, Dates, Epochs. Timelines, etc.
    • Literature, Classics, Drama, Movies & TV
    • Graphics, Fonts & Web Building Tools
  • What does ZTLearn mean?
    • Since my retirement from SPARCC in December 2016, I need to move the hosting of the site.
    • is simply the new site where I host my "Web Resource Hoarder" site.
    • The ZT is not an acronym, it comes from my Amateur Radio callsign K8ZT and its website
    • domain was available at a reasonable cost (as opposed to sites with "learning" instead of "learn" which cost much, much more). 
Boy that was a long description! Go explore "The Web Resource Hoarder" site for yourself and don't blame me when you realize you have spent hours lost in the massive amounts of material and resources!
