This web page offers a long list of frequently asked questions and answers regarding butterflies and caterpillars. There is a lot of information listed but no real method by which to sort through the pieces of information.

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.

This web page offers links to lesson plans for butterfly and life cycle units. [Unfortunately, a couple of the lesson ideas are now dead links, but the remaining ones are good.] The lesson plans are user-friendly and geared toward primary grades. You can also obtain information on applying for grants to create a butterfly garden at your school. That would make a fantastic Earth Day project for a classroom or entire school to promote team work.

tag(s): earth (228), earth day (112)

In the Classroom

As an anticipatory set or activator, try using a projector with a few of the images found at the "Photo Gallery" link at the left on this site. Your children will be very excited to OOOO and Ahhh at the beautiful pictures.

This online tool lets you create(or "share" someone else's existing) online calculations/spreadsheets. You can also display instant graphs of the spreadsheet contents. The spreadsheets are displayed in terms that ordinary people can understand and allow you to "plug in" numbers to see instant results. Some of the shared calculators already online are surface area and volume of geometric solids, interest calculators, body mass index, and more sophisticated business functions. The best way to see how the site works is to read through their "tour" then click to browse through the examples, especially the shared ones. Even if you never create your own, this tool is great!
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): addition (251), calculators (41), conversions (23), multiplication (227)

In the Classroom

Visit the site and observe how the shared examples work. If you find one you like, you can get the link (try the little disk icon) to go directly to it. If you are feeling more adventurous, try creating one of your own, perhaps for calculating the class average on a test. Your web-savvy students will love this tool for collaborative lab reports or graphs of statistics. For safety's sake do not use any student names or information if you share calcs online.

This oddly humorous website is all about the Octopus (cephalopods). There are articles about the octopus and other ocean animals, forums, features, videos and games. There is even an "octopodcast"! Some of the activities are more "fun" than "educational." But if you navigate through the website, you will find some great information and activities. This site requires Flash. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): marine biology (33)

In the Classroom

This website does provide some informative and humorous videos and games, be sure to view them prior to sharing them with your class. Some of the videos are not appropriate for younger audiences.
