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 (30)

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 (276), cultures (105), environment (317)

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.

This webquest provides activities for groups of four students each to learn background, new developments, and legislative impact of genetic engineering. It addresses the controversial topic of whether people should eat genetically engineered crops. Each of the students has a separate assignment within the overall webquest. Students learn how to research both sides of a question and provide a balanced, thoughtful examination of a hot topic by using a scientific approach to gain background information, develop critical thinking skills, examine legislative efforts related to the topic, and present findings in an original way. The site includes a grading rubric.

tag(s): engineering (125)

In the Classroom

Divide students carefully into well balanced groups so that they learn not only the topic of genetic engineering, but also the process of researching, analyzing, and presenting findings.

This site would make an excellent "hands-on" activity in a biology class where students can experience both scientific research and policy-making on a first hand basis. If your students are also studying government, they should have an even better sense of the processes involved.

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.

tag(s): energy (198), environment (317)

In the Classroom

Plan a web scavenger hunt to help students learn more about the scientific fields related to their biology class or use specific resources within this very adult site to share the excitement. The image gallery is worth some class time with a projector, for sure! Bring the science to life in the real world. The images may be used in your class projects and materials, as long as you give credit.

This is an online simulation game focuses on sustainable fishing (NOT the Stock Market as the title might lead one to believe!). Students can manipulate variables (numbers of fishing boats, catch quotas) and see how those changes affect both the bottom line and the environment. Each change results in a year's worth of data (up to 15 year's worth), and then reactions from different stakeholders. The game can be played at a basic level and at an advanced level.

tag(s): environment (317), fish (24), resources (112)

In the Classroom

The game could be helpful in showing students that "success" in a business that affects the environment can be measured in a number of ways: cash flow, environmental impact, community support. The game could be played cooperatively by groups of students on an interactive whiteboard, or could be played individually by students. Since it's available on-line, students could be instructed to play the game at home or during study halls and then be prepared to share their individual data in group discussion. Requires FLASH!

Make your own movie about life on a coral reef. Give students a chance to show what they have learned during an oceanography unit! This is a terrific alternative to a quiz or test. Easy to follow step by step directions allow students to choose a story line, hold a casting call (hero, antagonist and supporting character), and pick the location. Then add motion for the cast and music. Use prewritten script or write your own. When finished, download the movie and share it with friends. Flash is required. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page

tag(s): coral (12), fish (24), reefs (8)

In the Classroom

Use a projector to preview the site as a class and give students time to check out the characters and settings. Join language arts with science by having students pre-write their own scripts for the characters they choose. Movies cannot be saved until they have been completed, so make sure you reserve the computer lab or laptops for a sufficient length of time. If you use this as an assessment, be sure to show students a rubric before you start.
