BBC's presentation on the human body (and the mind) offers a nice, animated tool kit about various body systems. That said, the presentation lacks the built-in sequencing that would make it work as a stand-alone study resource, so teachers will need to supply that structure. Properly positioned, however, the content could really be quite useful.

Though it is politically sensitive in the U.S., this site from the Australian Academy of Science describes stem cells as key to the future of medical research. The site discusses the potential of this research, then goes on to compare legislative approaches to its regulation in Australia, Britain, and the U.S.

The Exploratorium does it again. Their site about the search for life beyond earth does a stellar job of profiling the science, scientists, and surprisingly diverse methods being used to expand our search for life forms elsewhere in the universe. The site includes plenty of links for further exploration.

Conserving the habitats of sea birds is an international concern. This South African site examines a variety of conservation issues, including the interactions between sea birds and international fishing fleets. There are a variety of searchable databases as well as presentations on the issues facing different species of birds. This one's interesting in that it presents some conservation issues that students might not have heard about.

Photography can be both an art form and a form of scientific inquiry. Photos of People and Cultures can promote human understanding better than any written words. This site from National Geographic can serve both ends if used properly. Art teachers "focus" on tips and techniques and photography advice areas, while science/social studies teachers will easily locate a wide range of plant, animal, culture, and geography images. As always, the photos themselves are exquisite.

tag(s): animals (285), photography (161)

In the Classroom

Share a photo of the day as an activator at the start of a lesson on your projector or interactive whiteboard. Allow a student of the day to select his/her photo of the day as a class inspiration. Share a photo as a visual writing prompt. Use tools on your IWB to discover and reveal design elements in the photos in art class. Use selected collections on laptops with student partners (galleries) to provide a visual experience of a location or culture you are studying, asking students to observe for visual evidence of some of the major concepts you have discussed in class.

Here's a Canadian site that examines the awesome potential of "genomics," explains gene sequencing, and raises some interesting questions about the implications of using human genome information. The site could augment both the "hard science" side of genome research and also its ethical and social policy questions. There's a lot to consider in this one.

tag(s): dna (68), genetics (92)

In the Classroom

Use the online games as a review for students while learning about cloning and DNA. Have the class complete the games over the interactive whiteboard or projector, or as a group in review learning centers. "The mighty mutation maker" would be a good review for students to understand how genetic code works, and how it can be changed easily - in a fun way!

This site from the University of Illinois offers information on eggs, chicks, and ways in which to study them. The sections on "egg math" and embryology are the most complete, though it's not entirely clear for which grades these activities were intended. That said, this one's worth a look, especially if your middle school science curriculum covers these topics.

tag(s): eggs (6)

In the Classroom

Use the chickscope embryology to show how a chick develops in an egg over a 21-day period. Have students complete the site as a learning center or laptop tour, looking at the development of the chick over a few days. As a companion assignment, have students take notes on the process on graphic organizers. For help making the sheets, use a site such as Mindomo, (reviewed here).
