Inventors didn't just live in the past! This site from Smithsonian introduces several dozen men and women whose inventions - in science, biology, engineering, etc. - have made major contributions to their fields. Students working on inventor projects will find these bios a welcome change from the standard fare.

Here's an extensive site devoted to students' explorations of mold! The Minnesota Science Museum collected student experiments, images, and reactions to their study of mold fungus. The images are suitably yucky, and the content could help a young experimenter become excited about his or her own exploration.

- Grades 9-12 - This unit is based on the debate over damming the Hetch Hetchy Valley in Yosemite National Park, which helped mark the evolution of the conservation movement. The unit has two parts: the first details conservation through the rationales of various historical figures, and the second outlines the case study of Hetch Hetchy. The format of the second part includes a mock hearing where students present their researched ideas. In the course of the unit, students will also compare historical ideas of conservation with current ones.

tag(s): conservation (127), ecology (135), environment (317)

In the Classroom

Be sure help your weaker readers and ESL students by sharing the vocabulary words prior to reading, either on a handout or by projecting on an interactive whiteboard and highlighting them in the text as you come to them.

National Geographic works their predicable visual wizardry in this site which chronicles an ongoing expedition along the Congo river. The site blends images and sounds - (Turn your speakers on!) - to give vivid impressions of this jungle ecosystem. This site could be a wonderful addition to your unit on Africa, jungles, rain forest habitats, or related areas.

tag(s): africa (180), endangered species (38), species (29)

In the Classroom

There are a few lesson ideas in the "Classroom Ideas" area, but you probably have many more. Share the site on an interactive whiteboard as a great unit introduction or assign students to take the trek with a partner and find examples of human's impact on animal habitats or answer questions about elephants and their behavior and habitat. After the journey, have them write a journal or blog entry about what they saw and learned.

Students create and maintain a compost pile to discover how natural materials can be effectively recycled using this inteactive composting site. This site requires FLASH. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.. As the site warns, "If you use a pop-up blocker, temporarily disable blocking to enjoy all of this site's capabilities."

tag(s): pollution (66), recycling (57)

In the Classroom

This site would be great on an interactive whiteboard or projector, but be sure to allow students to explore it on their own or with a partner to really experience the psocesses and answer questions about composting.
 This resource requires Adobe Flash.

tag(s): acid rain (5), ecology (135), pollution (66)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource during a lesson or unit on acid rain. Have cooperative learning groups explore the site, with the intentions of summarizing the information in a multimedia presentation. Have cooperative learning groups create online books using a tool such as Bookemon, reviewed here. Have groups tell the "acid" rain, explaining where and how it happens most. Great for a pre-discussion activity about the efforts to stop acid rain.

This tutorial from the University of Arizona offers a step-by-step introduction to the scientific method, the role of organisms' size in biology, the history of cell research in biology, and the various cell parts and reproductive stages. The tutorial includes study questions, and would be a useful resource for independent study or review.

tag(s): cells (102), scientific method (64)

In the Classroom

Use this tutorial to help students review before a unit assessment. Set this site up as a learning station or center OR post the site on the teacher webpage to allow students to use it both in and out of the classroom. This would be a great study resource in a biology classroom.

This is a French site which discusses world population growth, individual and sociological factors which affect that growth, and the implications of continued population growth for earth's ecosystems. Teachers and parents, please note: This site was created in France, where standards for discussions of reproduction, sexuality, and human behavior are more frank than may be customary in the U.S. Both the information and the presentation are engaging, but the approach may be too direct for your circumstances. Preview thoroughly before using.

This site from the University of Michigan uses a highly detailed collection of MRI scans of embryos to produce complete three-dimensional views of a human embryo as various developmental stages. The site also offers tools to let viewers select a particular MRI "slice" to show the embryo's internal structures. The images are fascinating.

MendelWeb is a rich hypermedia site that integrates the study of elementary mathematics (i.e. probability and statistics), classical genetics, European history, and the history of early modern biology. It is geared to both the high school/AP teacher and student. The section entitled "Secondary Sources and Tools" provides additional ideas and activities for use in the classroom. Noteworthy is the "Mendelroom" a virtual space designed for teachers and students who wish to share their experiences and ideas when using MendelWeb.

This site from the U.S. Department of Energy describes the origins and goals of the Human Genome Project, as well as the reasons for DOE's involvement. It offers a literate, sometimes challenging introduction to the effort to map the entire human genetic code. Apart from its obvious use for report research, the site could also serve as an introduction to genetics, cloning, or other aspects of high-tech biology.

BBC's Flash-enabled tour of the human body couples nice animations with relatively detailed descriptions of the major organs and body systems. The texts explain the roles of each body part in maintaining digestion, respiration, circulation, and overall body metabolism. There are also limited links to external information sources. The animations do a particularly good job of showing "how all the parts fit together."

While some information is designed for working professionals, other elements are suitable for use by interested students.

In the Classroom

This site would be an excellent resource for any unit conservationism, ecosystems, and endangered species. Have students use this site as a resource for research projects about specific animals. The site provides images, information and statistics what would be extremely helpful! Save this site on your class web page to allow students to access it both in and out of the classroom.
