Christmas is still a few days away, but it’s never too early to start keeping an eye on Jolly Old St. Nick. The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) will continue its annual tradition of tracking Santa as he makes his Christmas Eve trek around the world to bring gifts to all of the good girls and boys!

The festive site includes games, festive music, facts about NORAD and their mission, Santa’s sleigh, his route and reindeer. It will provide children with an exact GPS location of Santa’s position.

Don’t miss the NORAD Santa Tracker, an adventure that is hiding behind Tech Treasure #8!

You might find it hard to believe, but the North Pole just sent out an alert stating that children are having a hard time believing in Santa this year. Kids these days!

The 12 Digital Days of Christmas 2017: Tech Treasure #2

December5

geeky girl santa1Another day, another fun Christmas-themed resource awaits you behind Tech Treasure #2. Making its first appearance in one of my December lineups is a Breakout EDU activity—a holiday-themed game, of course! If you haven’t yet jumped on the breakout bandwagon, then there’s no time like the “present” (Get it? ha!)

Besides being a ton of fun, these challenging activities reinforce a myriad of important skills including problem solving, creative and critical thinking, communication, collaboration and teamwork. Quite frankly, students love, love these games, both the physical and digital versions (although maybe not quite as much me!) But enough of that for now… It’s time to get busy with one super cool winter breakout!

It’s nearly the end of the year… You look forward to presents and cheer. With holidays anon… You find they’re all gone! Why would they all disappear?

Just hover over the interactive image shown below to play Holiday Hideaway and solve the mystery!

The full screen version of this interactive image can be accessed here.

A note from the authors, Aubrey and Moriah Yeh : This breakout, which is geared more for the middle and high school levels,  focuses on listening clues and reading for information. It even has a bit of coding thrown in there.
