BBC has created an extensive, interactive website about animals. Check out this website for information, games and more. Examples of activities include "Pets", "Amazing Animals" and "Wild Games". If you study animals and classification, this site will provide endless examples of animals your students do not ordinarily see. The video clips bring the animals to life! Try the Amazing animals section for detailed information.

Many of the activities require FLASH.

tag(s): animals (284)

In the Classroom

Try these on an interactive whiteboard and introduce your students to some wild and amazing animals! This site is sure to be a class favorite. Younger readers will need help with the written details in Amazing Animals, but can still learn from the video clips (Require FLASH. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page).

Animal Diversity Web is an on-line database of animal natural history, distribution, and classification organized as an on-line encyclopedia. Users can search the Animalia Kingdom by Phylum, Sub phylum, Class, Order and Family. Choose the corresponding icons to view facts, descriptions, pictures, specimens and hear the sounds of the various animals. This site contains a lot of information. Younger students may need some assistance/instruction maneuvering through the site initially.

tag(s): animals (284), biodiversity (38), diversity (36)

In the Classroom

Introduce the site on a projector or interactive whiteboard before asking students to investigate their own animal choices. Older students can do comparisons and contrasts to better understand the taxonomy and can also read about naming of species. See the teaching link for more ideas. Play the sounds on your computer speakers, especially if the animals are unfamiliar in your part of the world. Sounds require Quicktime. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

This site also has a very public message about its authorship (college students) which can prompt a good discussion about reliability and appropriateness of sources. Reinforce critical evaluation of sources and information literacy in your science class, too!
