Are you looking for a unique way to grab the attention of your teenage students? This interesting website explores the connection between hair and science. Correlations are made between bad hair days and the weather. Three of the "hands on" activities include building a hair hygrometer, the healthy hair test, and creating curls. Some of the articles feature interactive elements that require FLASH. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): air (163), weather (195)

In the Classroom

Although this website doesn't have many "bells and whistles" (it dates back to 1998), the content could be very interesting in a chemistry or other secondary science class. This website takes a "teenage friendly" topic and brings it into the science classroom. There are many higher-level science topics within the text of this website. Invite students to try the experiments and even to use technology to create more up-to-date illustrations of the concepts for a health or science fair display.

Meet Lia and learn about women scientists. Anyone, especially middle school aged girls, is encouraged to become a scientist as Lia celebrates the lives and contributions of 10 female scientists. You will find hands-on, "sharable" science activities and games that make science fun. Book suggestions and amazing links associated with the women scientists' fields complete the offerings of this site designed to dispel the myth that girls can't do science.

tag(s): climate (93), genetics (94), space (215)

In the Classroom

The topics range from robots to subatomic particles, from biology to astronomy to social science. Use this site as a jumping off point to for scientist biographies and study of science careers in a variety of areas. Many of the links make excellent curriculum resources, as well. Be sure to make this site available from your teacher web page and encourage students to try some of the hands-on activities at home. Most are designed to be "social events" where students can invite friends to join in. Mention this to parents, as well, so they can encourage their young scientists with science parties!

This informative website provides numerous science topics all involving the human body. The links are basically articles (some possess interactive features). Specific topics/articles include self-portrait silhouettes, your body in your mind's eye, watching the brain at work, and peering inside the body (specifically the common techniques used to look inside the human body). Some of the techniques highlighted include PET scan, angiography, CT scan, ultrasound, fiber-obtic imaging, and others.

tag(s): brain (71), human body (126), sound (103)

In the Classroom

The articles each contain some unique "hands-on" experiments to provide real-world connections for curriculum concepts. Many of the activities would create a great anticipatory set for a new lesson on body systems, health, perception, technology, the brain, biochemistry, and more. Some of the articles have a "print this article" option, for those teachers wanting to provide their students with a hard copy of the article.

This site provides beautiful photographs of birds from around the world and displays the locations of many on a map in the sidebar. The birds are categorized alphabetically according to country. If you find yourself viewing information in French, click the small British flag at the top of the page to see it in English.

tag(s): biodiversity (39), birds (52), diversity (35)

In the Classroom

Use a projector or whiteboard to share several images as you start a lesson on biodiversity or adaptation. The maps will allow you to discuss climate and habitat in conjunction with the image of the bird. Students can also research or submit bird images using this site. If your biology class wants a project, mapping and photographing local birds would be an excellent contribution to this site.

This all-encompassing atlas site provides a broad variety of information and activities. The subject areas include agriculture, biology, boundaries, climate, environment, geology, government, history, mapping, transportation, people, and water. All of the subjects incorporate the United States (for example, the agriculture pages discuss the agriculture of the USA). The map features are phenomenal and include both printable maps and "dynamic maps" which are interactive and awesome! Some of interactive maps include topics such as relief and elevation, West Nile virus, volcanoes and more. This site is a perfect addition to any science class that is studying volcanoes, climate, biology and more. It is also useful in a geography class studying the various uses and types of maps. Some of the activities at this site require Flash, get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): agriculture (56), climate (93), environment (319), geology (83), maps (291)

In the Classroom

Have your students work in cooperative learning groups to investigate the "dynamic maps". Assign each group a topic to explore (there are 7). Have the students research the information using the maps and then report their findings to the class, perhaps displaying examples on a projector or interactive whiteboard. In teaching any of the related subjects, using a projector to share a map will make the content more "real," such as displaying the butterfly layer in the map maker so students can see how the butterfly population their home state compares with other locations.

This site offers up-to-date news on conservation issues and incidents in Africa. Organized by reporters in the different regions of this large continent, the site gives users the option of selecting news, videos, or blogs with videos to keep themselves informed on the very latest events impacting animals, both good and bad. The fastest way to find the animal information is to click on "Find Blogs about Hippos, Gorillas, Colobus monkey, Rhinos, amd other Endangered Animals"

tag(s): africa (178), animals (287), conservation (127), environment (319)

In the Classroom

Once you become familiar with specific naturalist bloggers on this site, you may want to revisit their posts throughout your unit on animals, biodiversity, or the environment. These real world connections would be good lesson starters. Teachers may also use this site when studying world cultures and geography of Africa. Elementary teachers will want to share selected portions of this site on an interactive whiteboard or projector as they teach about animal habitats and adaptations. Since some of the incidents that threaten the animals may be involve violence or be frightening to students, teachers should preview before sharing with younger students. The reading levels are adult, so this is not a good site to suggest for elementary students to use independently.

ARKive provides a well-organized opportunity for students to research various species of animals. The site is broken into two components: the Globally Endangered Chapter and the British Chapter. The site offers an alphabetized listing of animals along with detailed information, beautiful photographs, and vivid videos for each animal. Be sure to point out the Glossary located at the end of each animal section. This will help students with some of the more difficult vocabulary. Also make sure to note that the British Chapter is focused on animals found in Britain. TeachersFirst review team members found that the site servers are SLOW to open and reload pages, even on a fast connection. Be patient. It is worth it.

tag(s): animals (287), biodiversity (39), classification (25), diversity (35), species (29)

In the Classroom

Use this site as the starting point for individual or group projects. The site grants permission for educational download and use of the images (NOT on a web page), provided you include the copyright information with each image. Have students create sets of images to illustrate a report or make graphic organizers illustrating families of animals from your area and their classifications into kingdom, phylum, etc. Be letting students choose their own animals and examples, the task will have more meaning to them. Individuals can set up memberships (click My ARKive) to make "scrapbooks" of images and information. Membership requires a valid email address (info on your registration is sent there), so a whole-class or teacher account may be the easiest way to use it.

This site provides a good introduction to science fairs to help teachers, students and parents. There are separate sections of information on getting started, choosing a topic, completing the project, displaying the project and the Scientific Method. The section and links on Scientific Method are quite useful, even if your school does not do a science fair.

tag(s): air (163), scientific method (65)

In the Classroom

As you study scientific method, use the science fair examples as exercises for students to identify independent and dependent variables for the various projects. Give students the links to "find" experiments and analyze them with a partner or do this analysis as a class, sharing the project ideas on a projector or interactive whiteboard. The whiteboard tools would allow you to color code and highlight the various steps of scientific method consistently to help learning support students.

Include this site on your teacher web page for students and parents to access as a reference. Consider directing students and parents to particular links within this site that apply to the science fair students are participating in.

This website provides excellent descriptions for numerous biology concepts. Utilize the resource to simplify the complexities of biology. The site is designed for high school students and advanced biology classes, but some of the activities would be useful with the middle grades, also. The website features animation, interactive challenges, lessons, explicit details about the biology concepts, and other educational activities. Some of the topics include cells, respiration, nutrition, digestion, reproduction, genetics, DNA and many other science/biology topics. Some standards can be found at the "Teachers Lounge" link. This website offers illustrative, interactive science activities that require Flash, get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.. Note: our editors found the site slow in loading at certain times of the day, even on a high-speed connection. Check to see how it works in your school.

tag(s): cells (104), dna (68), evolution (102), genetics (94), molecules (44), nutrition (155)

In the Classroom

The interactives would help many students visualize concepts. Use the site as an introduction to or organizer for basic concepts in class, then include the link on your web page for students to review before a test. Some of the activities are also suited for an interactive whiteboard. This site follows a British AS and A2 level and may not exactly follow your curriculum sequence. Some portions require high school level reading, so learning support students would need assistance in select portions.

This unique program is designed to provide opportunities for students to become more aware of our natural resources, how to keep "common" animals common, and how to read various maps. The website provides a great deal of information for teachers wanting to use this program with their students (see teacher information). The activities could be used in any states, although some of the states already have active projects. This activity could easily be done locally, too, by using a county map. The regional activities provide students with hands-on science activities, field observations, project design and data management. Don't forget to check out the learning modules that provide lesson plans and standards.

tag(s): animals (287), biodiversity (39), diversity (35), maps (291), natural resources (60), resources (112)

In the Classroom

Use this activity to help foster an appreciation for our land and biodiversity. The maps would work well on a projection screen. Even if your state does not have a project, consider doing a biodiversity "map" of your community and annotating it with digital pictures on a bulletin board or powerpoint slides.

This interactive game introduces students to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The activity provides students with historical, scientific, and medical information about the MRI. After the reader-friendly information, students have the opportunity to choose patients and take them in for an MRI. There is also a matching activity that compares images from X-Rays, MRIs, and CATs (computer assisted tomography). As you study science concepts such as magnetism, light waves, and other physical science concepts this application of scientific concepts to solve a problem (seeing inside the body) will make the concepts more meaningful. If your science curriculum includes study of famous scientists or types of science, this feature is one of several on the Nobel prize site. This site requires Flash. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): images (277)

In the Classroom

This site is ideal for an interactive whiteboard. This website does an excellent job simplifying the complicated science behind MRIs. Students doing research on applications of science in the real world could also use this as as research source(most likely at the middle school level).
