Amazing sights await you in this site that takes a fascinating look at how the world around you changes. Visitors can actually control the passage of time - speed it up or slow it down - and view the coming of spring, the evolution of the continents, or the incredible functions of the human eye. Follow the Activities link to find some visually challenging interactive activities. This site would be an engaging addition to a life science or art lesson. Use the activities to encourage creative problem solving, or select one of the video images to use as a creative writing prompt.

Art, Literature, U.S. History - Works by some of the greatest photographers of the 20th century are represented in this massive collection of powerful images documenting memorable events in American politics and culture. Project selected photos in class to introduce an event in history, inspire student photographers, or introduce a writing prompt. The sight is searchable and quite user-friendly. A fee is required to download images.

tag(s): photography (162)

In the Classroom

Use the photos found in this site for writing prompts. Search within the site or browse the subjects offered to find one that corresponds to a unit being studied. A good example would be the images taken of the Great Depression. Pull up a select few of the images and prompt students to tell the story of what is happening in the image, the emotions seen, and what kind of impact this is meant to have of the viewer. An activity like this does require some background knowledge so this might better suited towards the end of a unit as review. This site would benefit teachers of nearly any subject, especially history, language arts, civics and science.

Left and right brain functions come together in this interactive site that takes a look at the art behind investigative police work. A brief introduction, explaining the role of each side of the brain, is followed by a series of assignments that require students to use their visual vocabulary to help solve a case. As art and forensic science come together, students begin to realize that visual images can be more effective than words in describing something. Check out the Teacher's Guide for a list of learning outcomes and helpful tips.

tag(s): forensics (27)

In the Classroom

Use this website as a paired activity, or learning center during a lesson on the right and left brain. Have students complete the activity & along the way, chart the difference between right and left brain using a venn diagram. Use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram (reviewed here).

Take your art students on a virtual tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art with this impressive retrospective highlighting the work of Childe Hassam, one of America's leading impressionist artists. More than 120 oil paintings, watercolors, pastels and prints are featured, depicting nostalgic views of well-known sites across America and Europe. Details of each image can be explored with the click of a mouse, and descriptive captions are provided for each work. A lengthy chronology of Hassam's life is included along with an excerpt from a delightful silent film (produced by the Met in 1932) about the artist. Portions of this site would be quite at home in an American history class! Be sure to investigate the "Family Feature" link which offers an interactive "Meet the Artist" activity, timeline, and several "Closer Look" activities designed for younger students.

tag(s): artists (76), painting (66)

In the Classroom

Use this site as an introductory activity on the interactive whiteboard to impressionism in the US. The images on the site are excellent representations of impressionism and can be used as examples to help students characterize it.

Divide students into cooperative learning groups to explore the site. Have them compare and contrast what they note about impressionism to other styles that have been studied before in class. Use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram (reviewed here). Have students print out their diagrams OR display their findings on the interactive whiteboard to their peers.

Tour the gallery to see what others have created. A fun and unique alternative to tradition pen and ink sketches!

tag(s): drawing (80)

In the Classroom

Save this site in your favorites on your class computers. Allow students to create their own designs in the "scribbler," and use those drawings as inspiration for an art project. Encourage recreating the scribble in other mediums, or even trying to sketch their own. In a language arts class, allow students to create poems or short rhymes in the scribbler. The graphic addition makes the poems a very interesting display, and is a different take on an old assignment! Due to the spider-web quality of the designs, scribbler poems would be perfect around Halloween.

This intergalactic journey pairs students with a couple of space aliens on a mission to explore the Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection. Kids can navigate through the virtual rooms, select specific works of art, and choose from a variety of interactive activities: listen to a story, create a masterpiece, discover the secrets hidden within a painting, or compose a poem using drag-and drop skills. Your students can easily navigate through this site on their own and will be amused for hours, so set some time limits! Headphones are highly recommended.

Use this site for an in-depth study of 19th century French painter Paul Gauguin. The focus of this interactive, on-line exhibition is his extraordinary work titled "Where Do We Come From? Where Are We? Where Are We Going," a masterpiece produced during the artist's time in Tahiti. Visitors can move a virtual magnifying glass over the work and click on 15 separate segments. Each segment is augmented by background text and audio interviews with art historians. This is a high-level site for serious analysis by mature students.

A bad example may be worth a thousand words. This site takes a playful and insightful approach to the best of the worst, providing visual images of "fine art" that, in some cases, defy description. Art teachers will find this to be a useful resource for illustrating what students should not emulate. Projecting this site in art class will provide rich material for discussion on style, form, and composition. Browseable sections include Portraiture, Landscape, and Unseen Forces. PLEASE PREVIEW and select images before projecting in the classroom. A few pieces in the collection are not "school appropriate."

Visual arts and social commentary come together in this site that looks at human history through the lens of artists and illustrators. Topics include graphic arts in wartime, 19th century news illustrations, 9-11 aftermath, and art under duress. Use this site to provoke discussion, guide reflective writing, or inspire personal artistic expression. These compelling images would make very effective anticipatory sets when projected in the classroom.

tag(s): sept11 (21)

In the Classroom

Use the images to create a visual discovery activity in your classroom - for example, use the collection of drawings to teach the events of 9/11 to your students. Share the images on the interactive whiteboard or projector, with students filling out reflections about each image. Reflections should focus on what they observe, infer and predict about each image. After showing a few of the more powerful images, have a class discussion as to what students wrote in their reflections. Going back to each image - what did we learn? What can we assume? What does this picture tell us about this event? You would be surprised about the emotional impact students learn, in addition to the content. This would be a good activity to do as a review, when students are able to use the information on class to project about the images. A great resource for a US history course.
