This website provides excellent descriptions for numerous biology concepts. Utilize the resource to simplify the complexities of biology. The site is designed for high school students and advanced biology classes, but some of the activities would be useful with the middle grades, also. The website features animation, interactive challenges, lessons, explicit details about the biology concepts, and other educational activities. Some of the topics include cells, respiration, nutrition, digestion, reproduction, genetics, DNA and many other science/biology topics. Some standards can be found at the "Teachers Lounge" link. This website offers illustrative, interactive science activities that require Flash, get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.. Note: our editors found the site slow in loading at certain times of the day, even on a high-speed connection. Check to see how it works in your school.

tag(s): cells (102), dna (69), evolution (100), genetics (90), molecules (43), nutrition (154)

In the Classroom

The interactives would help many students visualize concepts. Use the site as an introduction to or organizer for basic concepts in class, then include the link on your web page for students to review before a test. Some of the activities are also suited for an interactive whiteboard. This site follows a British AS and A2 level and may not exactly follow your curriculum sequence. Some portions require high school level reading, so learning support students would need assistance in select portions.

This unique program is designed to provide opportunities for students to become more aware of our natural resources, how to keep "common" animals common, and how to read various maps. The website provides a great deal of information for teachers wanting to use this program with their students (see teacher information). The activities could be used in any states, although some of the states already have active projects. This activity could easily be done locally, too, by using a county map. The regional activities provide students with hands-on science activities, field observations, project design and data management. Don't forget to check out the learning modules that provide lesson plans and standards.

tag(s): animals (276), biodiversity (38), diversity (36), maps (288), natural resources (59), resources (112)

In the Classroom

Use this activity to help foster an appreciation for our land and biodiversity. The maps would work well on a projection screen. Even if your state does not have a project, consider doing a biodiversity "map" of your community and annotating it with digital pictures on a bulletin board or powerpoint slides.

This interactive game introduces students to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The activity provides students with historical, scientific, and medical information about the MRI. After the reader-friendly information, students have the opportunity to choose patients and take them in for an MRI. There is also a matching activity that compares images from X-Rays, MRIs, and CATs (computer assisted tomography). As you study science concepts such as magnetism, light waves, and other physical science concepts this application of scientific concepts to solve a problem (seeing inside the body) will make the concepts more meaningful. If your science curriculum includes study of famous scientists or types of science, this feature is one of several on the Nobel prize site. This site requires Flash. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): images (265)

In the Classroom

This site is ideal for an interactive whiteboard. This website does an excellent job simplifying the complicated science behind MRIs. Students doing research on applications of science in the real world could also use this as as research source(most likely at the middle school level).

The challenge involves balancing the amount of shade and sun that reach the home. It includes an interactive explanation of the sun and the seasons. This activity requires Shockwave, get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.. There are also numerous other science activities, links, online exhibits and even Standards provided (see the Teachers Page)across many science, math, and engineering disciplines. Click on the "experiments" link for a wealth of fun and inspiring experiments in science and math. The experiments are engaging and provide virtual opportunities for students to build individual understanding.

tag(s): dna (69), environment (317), sound (100), sun (71)

In the Classroom

If you are unable to get laptops or the computer lab for your class, use an interactive whiteboard and make the "Beat The Heat" or other experiments a class project. Use the seasons explanation as a whole-class activity with elementary students on a projector or whiteboard.

Amazing! This site uses a highly-accurate Flash representation of the complete muscular and skeletal structure of the human face and head in an interactive tool. The parts are all labeled (probably enough for a med student), but then the user can make them move to understand how they work. You will find yourself looking far more closely at any facial expression after you play with this for a few minutes. The tool is available in both Spanish and English. Don't miss the sliders that make the skull or muscles show more beneath the "skin." You MUST have Flash to see this site. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): drawing (78), speech (92)

In the Classroom

Teach figure drawing (head and face) by exploring this tool on laptops or an interactive whiteboard. If you teach anatomy or even athletic training/physiology, the detail of the anatomical illustration is amazing. Creative writers can use the emotion descriptors at the right to learn how to SHOW characters' emotions in their writing by explaining what their faces do instead of TELLING readers how the characters feel. Spanish teachers and ESL teachers may want to use the facial expressions to teach words that describe emotions. Other teachers-- even those who teach emotional or autistic support-- could use the facial expression of emotions to help students who have poor social skills recognize what someone else is feeling or build vocabulary of "feeling words." Speech clinicians interested in showing students how to form sounds (for articulation) will love this site, as will their students!

This lesson plan examines the occurrence of Fibonacci numbers popularized by the book and movie The Da Vinci Code. By examining relationships between numbers of petals and other plant parts in fruits, vegetables, trees, and flowers, students begin to take note of the frequency of occurrence of the famed numbers. Students learn plant identification, data recording, research methods, and drawing conclusions based on findings in this fascinating, multi-disciplinary approach.

tag(s): data (148), numbers (204), photography (160), plants (144), scientific method (64), trees (30)

In the Classroom

Use your digital camera and real plants to collect and observe and a spreadsheet to track and calculate. Even better, use an online collaborative spreadsheet such as InstaCalc for students to enter data from home and school. You may get them hooked on noticing something about nature when they are outside.

LEAF: Learning, Experiences, and Activities in Forestry was designed to help users identify the trees by their leaves. The dichotomous identification procedure makes it easy to narrow types of leaves by selecting certain characteristics. Although the site is designed for Wisconsin trees, it would be useful for any states in the same climate zone and region. Tree identification cards with color photographs in pdf format are available. A lesson plan for use with the tree identification tools available on this site is offered in both WORD and pdf format. For younger students, there is a link to a parallel, more cartoon-like kids page.

tag(s): trees (30)

In the Classroom

Plan a hands-on tree identification activity using this site or digital pictures you take using trees in your area. The sequence for identification would work the same way. Even better: share this site on a projector and model the process, then ask your students to create their own cards and ID sequence using local digital pictures THEY take. You can then offer the "Tree ID Kits" to other teachers and classes to use.

tag(s): butterflies (13)

In the Classroom

This would be fun for students to sort through during center time or use for a portion of a web quest. As you study butterflies, keep a list of questions on your computer of the students generate as they learn-- and of the answers they find. You might even want to let them make their own Butterfly FAQ wiki. Learn more about wikis in the TeachersFirst Wiki Walk-Through, then use this FAQ page as a starting point so students understand what an FAQ page is.
