The "Fun and Games" section of this site has, well, fun and games.  Puzzles, printables, trivia.

Teaching ideas:  
Literature:  Identify and discuss the literary traits used in the online stories.  Or write your own fan fiction.

Play strategy games detailing or journaling thought processes used in playing.

Social Studies/Art/ Literature: Propaganda: 
Use this poster to discuss methods of propaganda and how the artist uses the elements to create a persuasive image.

Literature/Art/ Video Production: Look at the storyboards from different episodes to see how storyboard artists work with screen writers and directors to plot out the shots.  Use this technique as a time-saving device for planning out an essay, a concept, or a film.



The Doctor Who Prom 2010 was a concert showcasing incidental music from the British science fiction television series Doctor Who, along with classical music, performed as part of the BBC's Proms series of concerts. 

This series might be a good way to incorporate classical composition as well as composition as a response to art and film.
