Dear Member,

This week's newsletter features many great resources. Of particular interest to 
some teachers will be our "Earth Day" feature found below. With Earth Day only 
three weeks away, you will find an incredible assortment of information on our 
feature page, including lesson plans, worksheets, resources and much more. 
Also, this week we have begun using a coding system next to some features. Here 
is how it works: (A) All Grade Levels, (E) suitable for Elementary, (M) Middle 
School, (H) High School, (ESL) English Language, (US) only available to 
US-based teachers, (CA) Canadian teachers, (G) Globally, (PG) safe for viewing, 
(R) contains language or materials that may be offensive - this will likely be 
used only in reference to some Jokes and Cartoons and never in reference to 
teaching materials.

Thanks and Have a Great Week!
