Video-of-the-Day: Invasion of the Body Snatchers?!

I'm not going to spend too much time on this post as I should be prepping for bed. If you watched the video above then you really need no explanation. I am intrigued by the awesomeness, yet horror of Cordyceps. It reminds me of two movies - Invasion of the Body Snatchers and John Carpenter's: The Thing; these are probably the reason why I sometimes have nightmares involving this organism. Anyway, I watched it again today and thought I would share it with you. Enjoy and I apologize for any nightmares this may cause you in the future. ;)

Artistic Classroom Ceilings

One of my earlier blog posts highlighted a decorated classroom ceiling.The pictures shown below are from a school in Austin, Texas named Travis High School. It is one of the campuses I support. Travis HS was also where I completed my student teaching experience.  The ceiling art (pictures 1 - 4) has to be over 10 years old because that's how long ago my student teaching experience was. I know other classroom ceilings have recently added art (pictures 5-6).

This was something I wanted to do in my own classroom but never got around to it. However, one of my goals is to return in a few years and I plan to have my students decorate my room. Anyway, enjoy the pictures and I hope they inspire you to create something similar or unique in your classroom.
