In the Classroom

Be sure to bookmark this site as a useful resource for any science topic. Take advantage of the free lessons aligned to Next Generation Science Standards to add to your current content. Use an online bulletin board like Lino, reviewed here throughout your science unit to record student questions, ideas, and ongoing discussions. If you use video content during your science lessons, consider incorporating a tool like Vizia, reviewed here or EdPuzzle, reviewed hereto integrate quizzes and polls directly into your video. Instead of a written or oral presentation of student research, have students use Sway, reviewed here to create a multimedia presentation incorporating video, images, and text.

Science, health, and biology teachers can find a variety of resources on this site for helping students to understand the skeletal system, bone health, and nutrition. Students can play an interactive Bone-Yahtzee game, or participate in a question/answer page. The Teacher's Corner contains two printable worksheets that can be used to guide students through the site content. Some sections are still in progress, but there is still a considerable amount of information to explore.

Introduce your students to the microbial worlds of bacteria, fungi, and viruses with this site that provides entertaining background information, ideas for classroom experiments, and a collection of "Microbes in the News" articles. Find out when hands should be washed and what happens when they are not! Interested students can even explore a "Careers" link that offers interviews with experts in the field, advice on finding a mentor, and tips on how to become a microbiologist. Available in English and Spanish.

In the Classroom

Use the videos on this site as a supplement to a lecture on microbes. One video that would be great, "E. Coli Animation," shows the growth and reproduction of e.coli in a quick YouTube clip. Not all school internet systems allow for access to YouTube, so make sure to check your school's policies before use. If it does work, some of these videos do a great job of detailing specific microbes and their life-cycles. Definitely a lot more interesting and fun for students to watch than reading the same information out of a textbook!

This excellent site provides an on-line resource of butterfly species and populations throughout the United States and northern Mexico. A section on Canada is planned for the near future. Visitors can use an interactive map to click on any state and discover which butterflies inhabit that region. Photographs of adult butterflies, larvae, and eggs are provided along with information about the distributions of species at the county level. Helpful advice on distinguishing moths from butterflies is provided along with a collection of thumbnail sketches that help visitors identify species they may have spotted.

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.

tag(s): body systems (56), human body (132)

In the Classroom

Once you've finish your presentation on different body systems, introduce this tool to the class. Then set it up on station computers for students to experiment with in class.

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 (322), photography (157)

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.

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).
