Uses computer-enhanced images of living cells and organisms to explain certain cellular processes. The explanations are clear, and well suited to high school students. The topics range from HIV Infection to Streptococcus and parasites.

tag(s): cells (99)

In the Classroom

Use your projector or interactive whiteboard to introduce Cells Alive to your class. Keep this site in your professional favorites to find supporting technology and lessons for teaching about cells. As you find practice or extension ideas for student use or at home reinforcement, share specific links on your class web page or classroom computer center for students to access independently or as you assign them for needed practice. Consider posing questions in Flipgrid, reviewed here, for students to respond to and comment on others responses.

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.

tag(s): cells (99), ecology (138)

In the Classroom

This site will compliment your study of cells. Use it as an introduction or review. Share this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Have students explore this site independently or in pairs. If used independently put the site on a classroom computer and use as a center. To use in pairs, bring students to the lab or use a classroom set of laptops. This site would also be a good one to add to your class webpage or blog for use at home. Have students create a simple infographic sharing their findings using Visme, reviewed here.

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 (72)

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.

tag(s): genetics (88)

In the Classroom

Use this site to familiarize your students with current issues in genetic research. Have students choose one of the topics from the table of contents to read and research. Once they have an opinion about the topic, they should conduct research to support their position. If your students are inexperienced conducting research you may want to use a tool like Go, Ask, Achieve, reviewed here, an interactive and engaging tool for students to learn the formal research process. After completing a little research, form teams, by topic, and divide those teams into those who are in favor of the issue or those who are against the issue. Have student topic teams prepare for a debate with each other either with the class as the audience, or use a tool like Virtual Debate, reviewed here. Alternatively, students could view past debates on Virtual Debate to analyze pro and con arguments and effective strategies for debating.
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.
