This site offers an introduction to three areas of bioology: cells, chemistry, and ecology, along with a set of study materials. Though the concepts are "real science," the language is approachable and interesting enough to keep students engaged. This site is well worth a look for use as either a self-study or a resource to accompany an introduction to biology. Part of the Kapili.com collection.

This site is a gold mine of illustrations, artwork, and images for teaching biology. Divided into separate sections for human biology, histology, etc., the site offers hundreds of downloadable illustrations in GIF and Corel vector formats. Convenient thumbnail pages make selection simple, though there's lots to choose from. If your classroom is short on resources, this is a wonderful alternative. From the University of Ottawa, Canada.

The University of Florida has compiled a listing of insects holding the record for the biggest, fastest, smallest, etc., etc. A good collection of insect trivia, as well as a potential starting point for a more serious exploration of insects and the way they live.

tag(s): insects (69)

In the Classroom

While some of the world records might make students a little queasy, (see the worlds biggest bug) this site would be an excellent way to get students interested in the study of insects. Share the site on an interactive whiteboard or projector, and allow students to explore it in groups. What would be interesting is to see how many record holders were local insects. Have students create a digital record book, including images on a site such as Bookemon, reviewed here.

The American Association for the Advancement of Science offers this publication to probe some of the issues raised by genetic research. Based on issues raised by the Human Genome Project, the site offers a set of "what if..." case studies designed to start discussions of issues related to genetic research. What can genetic testing reveal? Who should know the information? Does the fact that we can clone an animal mean that we should? The site provides lots of great discussion starters accompanied by sound scientific explanations.
