Find extensive, up-to-date information on the Human Genome Project, ethical issues in genetics, biofuels, microbial genome research, and much more. This site would be a fantastic resource for student biology and microbiology research projects and career explorations. Help your students see what is happening in the very real world of science today.

tag(s): energy (202), environment (318)

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 (318), fish (26), 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 (11), fish (26), reefs (7)

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.

This website provides teachers with several unique science activities, with minimal cost. Topics include making bubbles, DNA, making milk stiff and making butter. This website is very basic, but has unique ideas. The activities teach basic scientific method and design of experiments vs. demonstrations. The DNA dance is a whole-class experience and introduces students to the complexities of DNA.

tag(s): dna (68)

In the Classroom

Walk through some of the question/answers on a projector or interactive whiteboard, then ask students to investigate others in small groups at a computer before actually doing the experiments.

This animated site is amazing! The entire site is a journey throughout the African forest. Along the way, students have four African children offering advice. Their parents include a researcher, forest ranger, farmer and more! The African characters' expertise helps the student to choose which way to go next. The site includes a forest fact book, information about African animals and forests. A special asset of this unique site is that it incorporates problem-solving skills. Hints are given, but the student has to choose which option would be best. The site requires FLASH! Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

Your students will need a good 15-30 minutes to complete this activity either as a class or individually. Don't forget to use an interactive whiteboard if you are doing this as a class activity. Students will want to visit again at home, so include the link on your teacher web page, as well.

This interactive website is amazing - both informative and entertaining. Students are sent on a mission as an investigative reporter from a local newspaper. This interactive lesson takes students up close to the Philippines to observe seahorses. Students also complete their investigations by interviews and library research all pre-created at the Shedd Aquarium. The culminating activity requires students to prepare a persuasive article. This site is extremely well done and students will enjoy the videos, unique activities and the original way that the information is presented. Note: our editors had difficulty accessing some of the interview videos. There's apparently a codec issue with these. That's geek speak for, "They don't work." The rest of the site works fine, however, just be sure to pre-test videos you assign to students.

tag(s): conservation (125)

In the Classroom

Use this investigation to spice up your conservation, marine biology or general science classes. It is multi-disciplinary and very interesting.

Take these interactive "walks" in a virtual temperate forest of Virginia to learn about biodiversity, soil study, tree identification, seasonal change, forest mapping, amphibians, and more. The walks are part of a larger set of modules on Conservation done by the National Zoo. Each "walk" is available with or without narration. The download is quite lengthy for the narrated version during peak time periods, even over a broadband connection, but weaker readers can more easily understand this spoken version. The small links to each option are below the clip art icons with the descriptions. There are also Acrobat Reader files of teacher materials. Correlation to Virginia science standards is available.

tag(s): biodiversity (38), diversity (34), oil (45), seasons (38), soil (19)

In the Classroom

Assign the students to take the "walks" to learn specific terms and concepts. You may want to start by modeling one of them on a projector. Note: If the download time is a problem, do them as a whole-class activity on a projector or interactive whiteboard. Once you have downloaded the "walk," it will run smoothly. Peak traffic on the site is likely between 11 am and 2 pm Eastern time due to traffic from throughout the U.S.
