This wonderfully informative website provides numerous "case files" about many famous people from the world of science and technology.. There are five major areas including computing, transportation, cosmic inquiry, energy, and communications. Once you click on one of the major areas, a list of names appears. Then click on the names of the famous people to learn more about their specific inventions and/or contributions to science and technology. The text also includes images of artifacts from each scientist's life: diaries, writings, and more, all clickable to bring up a larger image of the "real thing." Numerous famous scientists and inventors are included (Alexander Graham Bell, William Jennings, Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, Henry Ford, Catherine Gibbon, and many others).

tag(s): aviation (39), energy (197), inventors and inventions (101), scientists (68), transportation (40)

In the Classroom

There is a "teachers link" available to learn more about this website. Why not use this website as a resource for "case file" research projects. Assign each student (or groups of students) a different person to investigate. Weaker readers may need a partner with strong reading skills. Then have the students present a multimedia presentation about their "case file." Or have a day when students actually portray their scientist and interact with others "in character."

This website shows how the solar system rotates as time passes. Click "Visible" Solar System to start the simulation. Use the date and time controls to manipulate "time." You can also see the skies from the ground, view the sun in relation to the earth and other planets, and more. Students will marvel at the comet simulation and the comet and eclipse predictors. The website also features information on each separate planet and alternate historical views of the solar system, including the Copernican and the Jovian. The site requires JAVA. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): earth (228), moon (72), planets (123), sun (71)

In the Classroom

Use your interactive whiteboard (or projector) to show students how the night sky changes as the hours pass. Since the print is small, have students use the whteboard pens to cirle things or point out special features of the "sky." There is a Notes for Teachers link that provides descriptions of each activity and some ideas to incorporate the activities into your class.

Use this website when teaching ESL/ELL students about space and the solar system since this website is highly visual and contains few words.

Leonardo da Vinci is one of history's greatest geniuses. This site looks at Leonardo's work in ways that highlight how comprehensive and interdisciplinary his impact has been. Of course, you can examine his individual works of art, but this site is organized along threads, which you can access through a traditional menu or through an interactive web. Follow Leonardo's influence in math, through his inventions, in his understanding of the human body or his examination of the natural world. There are also some just-plain-fun flash-enabled games to play: make the Mona Lisa smile broadly by correctly answering questions about her, practice mirror writing, or see if you can power his glider across a ravine.

tag(s): renaissance (34)

In the Classroom

Because Leonardo's work crosses so many curricular boundaries, teachers from many different disciplines might find this site useful as part of a lesson on a projector or interactive whiteboard, particularly when painting "the big picture" for students (no pun intended!). Art teachers, of course, can access Leonardo's work, but science teachers can use the interactive games to illustrate principles of physics or early understanding of the human body. History or literature teachers might use the site to personify the term "Renaissance Man" for students studying the time period. Whatever your discipline, be sure to make the link available from your teacher web page for curious students to explore outside of class.

This MUST SEE interactive science website features eight specific areas. The "News" section includes weekly news updates and features. "Wired" has challenging interactive games for grades 4-12. "Sci-Teach" provides countless resources for teachers of all grades. "Out There" takes you to the "back garden of science delights," including inventors, sound, vampires, and the flu. "Parents" has useful ideas - even science experiments for children's parties. "Under 11s" is geared for younger students, an excellent collection!. The activities teach traditional science topics using new multimedia. The "Next Steps" link challenges students to think about their future careers (both science and non-science). There are printable pages and interactive activities for elementary, middle, and high school students. The "Library" link features countless online science resources.

Nearly every one of the activities requires FLASH. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): inventors and inventions (101), planets (123), sports (96), water (130)

In the Classroom

Nearly all of the activities are ideal for interactive whiteboards (or projectors). This site is so rich it may be overwhelming. If you are an elementary teacher, start at the "Under 11s" link. Otherwise, visit the "Sci-Teach" link first for some excellent ideas, resources, and science fun. Preview this site before starting any science unit to find related activites and extensions.

Celebrate NASA's 50th anniversary by learning about its major feats and heroes. While this site has pages of information through fact sheets, its greatest asset is the interactive time line where students scroll through the years of space exploration using their mouse, and then clicking on the blocks to learn more about NASA's accomplishments.

tag(s): moon (72), nasa (39), space (205)

In the Classroom

Celebrations for NASA's 50 years continue throughout 2008, so put this unit on your calendar early. Check out the calendar of events to coordinate your lessons with NASA events. In addition, the NASA Links section found at the left is your portal to all NASA websites and web pages.

Meet Lia and learn about women scientists. Anyone, especially middle school aged girls, is encouraged to become a scientist as Lia celebrates the lives and contributions of 10 female scientists. You will find hands-on, "sharable" science activities and games that make science fun. Book suggestions and amazing links associated with the women scientists' fields complete the offerings of this site designed to dispel the myth that girls can't do science.

tag(s): climate (92), genetics (90), space (205)

In the Classroom

The topics range from robots to subatomic particles, from biology to astronomy to social science. Use this site as a jumping off point to for scientist biographies and study of science careers in a variety of areas. Many of the links make excellent curriculum resources, as well. Be sure to make this site available from your teacher web page and encourage students to try some of the hands-on activities at home. Most are designed to be "social events" where students can invite friends to join in. Mention this to parents, as well, so they can encourage their young scientists with science parties!

tag(s): earth (228), gravity (45), mars (41), planets (123), solar system (119), stars (61)

In the Classroom

Share the interactives, such as the view of the world in real time daylight and darkness, on a whiteboard or projector with younger students. For better readers, this website would be ideal for individual or group research "scavenger hunts" on science topics. Briefly read through the website and capture facts that you want your students to learn. Then assign questions for them to find the answers. An alternative: split the class of uppper elementary or middle school students into groups, with each group taking one of your selected activities on a curriculum topic such as motion or space. Have THEM create the scavenger hunt questions for others to find and save them in a document to share with other groups. Be sure to require that they generate at least one open-ended "thinking question" you can use for follow-up class discussion or blogging.

Have a high speed Internet connection? (Most schools do)The you MUST visit these 3D virtual tours of beautiful sites all over the world with your students. Read the Welcome message on the home page for directions and details, then explore the current features and several years of archives for 3D virtual tours from major world capitals to true "experiences" such as Times Square and white water rafting. Even the tour of a Banyan tree will amaze you. Bring the world into your classroom for geography, landforms, world cultures, foreign language study, or literary settings. Be in the midst of festivals or atop the Sydney Bridge. The site requires Quicktime. The Welcome section can help you troubleshoot. Or you can get Quicktime from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.. Just be sure to share in full screen (high band) view , if you can! Click the FULL SCREEN QTVR FEATURE > ARCHIVE to find more choices. There is also a link to Arounder, a collection of European Capitals in 3D tours.

tag(s): images (265), landforms (45)

In the Classroom

Use a projector--or better yet, an interactive whiteboard--to take students atop the Eiffel Tower, to the high Sierras, or aboard a Mars explorer. Allow student to navigate on the whiteboard. Nte that Shift and Ctrl keys alow you to zoom, as well. Be sure to click at the top of the 3D view to Read More about the image. These tours will make landforms real, culture come alive, and science a visual art form. As you introduce terms and place, use images! You could even use a tour as a writing prompt for poetry or descriptive writing. Include the link on your teacher web page for students to "tour the world" outside of class or feature one location a week to broaden class horizons on a classroom desktop.

What a GREAT idea! Thank you. I found one with mountain biking and vistas. I'll put it up early in the period and come back to it in the end and have them write their exit cards about it. Then I will revisit it in a week or two when we start talking about metaphorical language. Shirley, CA, Grades: 6 - 12
I plan to use this as a way to start the school year with my sixth grade G/T kids. I will display a panorama on an interactive whiteboard-- one of mountains with peaks and valleys. I will ask, "Why would I show you this and say that this is our classroom this year?" The students will write down an idea on a slip of paper, guessing why I might use this as an introduction to my class. They will most likely introduce all of the classroom conduct and learning environment issues that I want to touch upon that first day: peaks and valleys during the year, some rugged terrain, studying mountains and geography, some amazing views (everyone's opinions), and more. It will also get them thinking in analogies and allow me to see how quickly some of them do this and how literal others are. Thinking, PA, Grades: 5 - 10

Even your non-readers will be able to understand the information about the solar system through the audio narration. Don't forget speakers--or headphones if you want students to navigate on their own.

This website provides numerous teacher-created PowerPoints. Some of the presentations are excellent, while others are just mediocre. The range of topics goes from astronomy, to history, to French and much, much more! There is something good here for every classroom. You MUST have PowerPoint software (not free) to be able to download and edit the shows.

In the Classroom

Use the small blue buttons to find your subject(s). This site is great for finding/sharing an interactive whiteboard activity or projected lesson. Since the PowerPoint shoes are editable, you may want to customize the shows you find. The grade equivalents are listed in the British system: KS1=ages 5-7; KS2=ages 7-11;KS3= ages 11-14;KS4= ages 14-16, A Level=ages 16-18.

MSTE stands for Mathematics, Science, and Technology Education. This is a fabulous website that provides a wealth of interactive activities and printable lessons to use in your classes. There are numerous math and science topics (including chemistry, measurement, probability, geometry, data analysis, physics, algebra and much, much more). Some parts of this site requires Flash. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.. Many of the interactives use Java Applets. These will run on most computers without additional software.

tag(s): addition (251), division (172), multiplication (227), probability (130), subtraction (208), vision (87)

In the Classroom

Many of these activities would work well with an interactive whiteboard. Read the desciptions of the interactives to see the specific curriculum topics. Many have step-by step lessons included. There is truly something for everyone.
  This resource requires Adobe Flash and PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.

Cross over from science to literature by participating in the Space Poem Chain. This "chain" originates in Japan, where weekly submissions have been selected during the six months from October 2006 to March 2007. Click on "concept" to read the background and details. The completed Space Poem Chain will be recorded on DVD and in late December 2007 sent up to the International Space Station in the Japanese Experimental Module Kibo. The project hopes to continue after this initial phase. The poem follows a traditional Japanese poetry form, but entries mat be submitted both in English and Japanese. See the full work, with beautiful space image backgrounds by clicking on "Space Poem Chain Gallery >Enter." The poem display requires FLASH and is sometimes slow to load.

tag(s): gifted (96), poetry (227), space (205)

In the Classroom

Share this site as a unique participatory poetry experience, even after the initial project publication. Perhaps your students would like to launch a poetry chain within your school or on a class wiki open to students around the world. Teachers in science, English, and even gifted program classes have a unique opportunity to awaken interest. Make creative writing an open experience-- one that may even appeal to the "rocket scientists" in your class.

When you first visit the site, you may be prompted to download a Japanese language plug-in. You will be able to READ the site without it, but the legibility improves dramatically if you are permitted to download plug-ins on your computer.
