Simple, yet Great Sites - Vol. 1

Sometimes - we all run across websites we think are simply great. They can be very simplistic in nature but achieve huge things! Well... here are 5 that I want to share with you.

Writing poetry? Stuck on a word that rhymes with "__" Check out this site... it adds to your creative juices by quickly giving you rhyming words!

Need to convert scanned images or .pdf's into editable text? This online optical character recognition site gives you that ability!

Need to find some historical maps or documents within a certain time period, in ANY country? This site is the place!

Want to know about the climate in ANY region of the world. This user-friendly site gives you climate information quickly!

Trying to figure out which language you are looking at? This website allows you to paste in the text and it instantly recognizes what foreign language the text is written.

My students really enjoyed using rhymezone when they wrote poems for teacher appreciation this week. :)
