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 (296)

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).
 This resource requires Adobe Flash.

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 (296), biodiversity (35), diversity (33)

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!

Animal Corner offers facts and statistics for a multitude of animals. It is easy to maneuver through the categories of animals such as pets, farm, insects, wild life, marine, Galapagos, and rain forest. The site is user-friendly and filled with interesting information.

Be aware: the site says that it is "currently under construction" but all information and links work, they are simply adding additional material. There are some unobtrusive advertisements at this website.

tag(s): animals (296), insects (72), reptiles (13)

In the Classroom

Perfect for a web quest or research tool for a project/report. Place on your classroom homepage or desktop to correlate with your weekly/daily theme. Lower elementary readers will need help with some of the text, but there are also pictures.

May not be appropriate for all audiences. Portions of the site require FLASH and Quicktime plug-ins. Get them from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): dissection (10)

In the Classroom

The site could be displayed on the LCD projector to teach as a whole-group lesson or lab. Students who opt out of actual dissection activities may be able to use this site instead.

This on-line textbook contains an amazing amount of information regarding biology and botany. The in-depth detail is a bit overwhelming but the "diamonds in rough" and bits of interesting information are worth it, as is the factual data contained within the website. The site also includes on-line curricula for biology and botany 101.

In the Classroom

This site would be very handy for a research project or upper-level web quest. Include it on your teacher web page as you assign independent projects for both in and out of class. The pages are text-intensive, so an weak readers will need and alernate source or reader-partner.

Take Control! The Cincinnati Zoo provides web cams that students can control from the comfort (and safety) of their own classroom. The web cams are stationed within the rhinoceros and gorilla areas. Students enter a queue and wait their turn until the controls open up. At that time, students can manipulate the camera(s) for several shots within the animal habitats. This is an interesting and interactive opportunity as opposed to the traditional stationary web cams. High speed internet is helpful.

In the Classroom

As you study animals or read a selection about them in your language arts class, set up this site as a center. Teacher about scientific observation by having students "observe" the animals' behavior at specific times of the day or for a certain period of time. How often does a gorilla scratch? Look up the weather in Cincinnati to determine whether it has an impact on the animals' behavior. You don''t have to be there to conduct an "experiment." Search TeachersFirst for other webcams if these are not the animals you want.

Besides identifying trees, users learn about forest ground layers, enrich their vocabulary, study tree anatomy and health, and hone their searching skills. When users are looking for the name of tree by looking at its leaf, this website will identify the leaf and then lead to so much more information! People who want to learn how to take care of trees learn about soils, types of land, and even how to plant (video included)!

tag(s): trees (28)

In the Classroom

A good reference resource for outdoor outings involving leaf collecting or as a reference site during your botany unit. There are portions of the site where items and memberships are for sale, so preview and alert your students to avoid these areas.

This site pulls together understanding of environment, geography, the earth and its setting in space, cultures, animals, and more. It forms a "core" for what social studies (and science)is all about. To figure out how the "Big Wide World" works, students will work with partners to investigate one area of the world (globe, plants, people, cultures, language, animals) and come up with rules about how this area works. The individual areas join with other areas and determine how the areas relate to each other. A teacher guide included. Active X is required on some website links.

tag(s): animals (296), cultures (108), environment (322)

In the Classroom

Use this Webquest to introduce the connections between major social studies and science concepts. After students work in groups to investigate the different areas, bring the class together to share. Guide a class discussion to show how the different areas are linked and work together. Use the Relationship Wheel (see Teacher Guide) as a bulletin board to support understanding. The site information says it can be used in grades K-4, but non-readers cannot do the tasks without a reader! For independent workers, it is better suited (and quite applicable)for grades 2-6.

If you do this at the start of the school year, you can revisit the overarching connections as you begin study of each sub-area so you are connecting to prior knowledge every time. Teachers in later grades could even recall the overarching questions as they continue with the study of these topics. Be SURE to put the link on your teacher web page for students to revisit throughout the year.

Spring migration news is posted weekly, so plan some activities to coincide with the actual migration.
 This resource requires Adobe Flash.

Comments

This is a great site to involve students in observing while at home during migratory seasons. They may end up following migrations long after we finish talking about it in class. David, VA, Grades: 4 - 8

This bulletin board style site includes links to online tutorials, web resources, an online editable biology dictionary, and forums on various biology topics. The dictionary is much like wikipedia, with the public able to edit and change the entires, but the site is moderated by a team. You may not want to accept the dictionary as a formal "source," but your students will like the ease with which they can look up terms and review biology material on this online environment.

In the Classroom

Include a link to this one among the resources on your teacher web page so stumped students have somewhere to turn while reviewing or doing homework. You must be a member to edit the dictionary, add posts to the forum, or suggest a resource (membership is free). Perhaps you want to set up a class account so you can add entries together from a projector in class.
