    www.moneyinstructor.com is a great site--it has lots of activities you can print off to relate to real world situations. I did the checkbook activity with my 6th graders today and it went very well.

    There's a video on the internet dealing with space and the powers of ten. I showed it in science last year (it zooms in and out of the universe), but it could also be used for exponents. The kids love it! I think if you google "Powers of ten" video you'll get it.
