This virtual field trip takes students to the Arizona Science Center. The featured activity, "Beat The Heat", challenges students to design a home that uses the sun's energy as heat, but not get too hot. The challenge involves balancing the amount of shade and sun that reach the home. It includes an interactive explanation of the sun and the seasons. This activity requires Shockwave, get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.. There are also numerous other science activities, links, online exhibits and even Standards provided (see the Teachers Page)across many science, math, and engineering disciplines. Click on the "experiments" link for a wealth of fun and inspiring experiments in science and math. The experiments are engaging and provide virtual opportunities for students to build individual understanding.

tag(s): dna (69), environment (317), sound (100), sun (71)

In the Classroom

If you are unable to get laptops or the computer lab for your class, use an interactive whiteboard and make the "Beat The Heat" or other experiments a class project. Use the seasons explanation as a whole-class activity with elementary students on a projector or whiteboard.

Have a high speed Internet connection? (Most schools do)The you MUST visit these 3D virtual tours of beautiful sites all over the world with your students. Read the Welcome message on the home page for directions and details, then explore the current features and several years of archives for 3D virtual tours from major world capitals to true "experiences" such as Times Square and white water rafting. Even the tour of a Banyan tree will amaze you. Bring the world into your classroom for geography, landforms, world cultures, foreign language study, or literary settings. Be in the midst of festivals or atop the Sydney Bridge. The site requires Quicktime. The Welcome section can help you troubleshoot. Or you can get Quicktime from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.. Just be sure to share in full screen (high band) view , if you can! Click the FULL SCREEN QTVR FEATURE > ARCHIVE to find more choices. There is also a link to Arounder, a collection of European Capitals in 3D tours.

tag(s): images (265), landforms (45)

In the Classroom

Use a projector--or better yet, an interactive whiteboard--to take students atop the Eiffel Tower, to the high Sierras, or aboard a Mars explorer. Allow student to navigate on the whiteboard. Nte that Shift and Ctrl keys alow you to zoom, as well. Be sure to click at the top of the 3D view to Read More about the image. These tours will make landforms real, culture come alive, and science a visual art form. As you introduce terms and place, use images! You could even use a tour as a writing prompt for poetry or descriptive writing. Include the link on your teacher web page for students to "tour the world" outside of class or feature one location a week to broaden class horizons on a classroom desktop.

What a GREAT idea! Thank you. I found one with mountain biking and vistas. I'll put it up early in the period and come back to it in the end and have them write their exit cards about it. Then I will revisit it in a week or two when we start talking about metaphorical language. Shirley, CA, Grades: 6 - 12
I plan to use this as a way to start the school year with my sixth grade G/T kids. I will display a panorama on an interactive whiteboard-- one of mountains with peaks and valleys. I will ask, "Why would I show you this and say that this is our classroom this year?" The students will write down an idea on a slip of paper, guessing why I might use this as an introduction to my class. They will most likely introduce all of the classroom conduct and learning environment issues that I want to touch upon that first day: peaks and valleys during the year, some rugged terrain, studying mountains and geography, some amazing views (everyone's opinions), and more. It will also get them thinking in analogies and allow me to see how quickly some of them do this and how literal others are. Thinking, PA, Grades: 5 - 10

Learn about plate tectonics as you manipluate plates with the computer and watch the resulting changes in the earth's surface. Read detailed explanations with animated images. Then try the Plate Tectonics activity to manipulate the plates yourself. There is also information about the various scientists who made relevant discoveries about tectonics and what they found. The activity requires Shockwave. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page. or from the link right on the page.

tag(s): earth (228), earthquakes (48), landforms (45), plate tectonics (23)

In the Classroom

Share the plate tectonics siumlator on an interactve whiteboard as you learn about the different ways that plates interact. Be sure to allow students to move the plates and name the resulting changes. To further reinforce the plate activiites, have pairs of students create animated graphics on slides in PowerPoint slides showing the motions of the plates and labeling them. This could also be an alternative assessment that shows real understanding. If they can add their own sound effects, they will really enjoy themselves!

Learn about how earthquakes are measured and actually collect data to locate the epicenter of one, using this simulator. The site includes images, tutorials, and analysis tools for real earthquake data. Students will be reminded of nhow longitude ad latitude work (don't worry--there is a tutorial!). They will also see how important math is in manipulating scientific data. You will need to turn off your pop-up blocker to use this site and be sure to read the System Requirements! The simulator uses both Java and Flash. The instructions are user-friendly, so don't be afraid to try it. Check the System Requirements button if you are having trouble making the site "work."

tag(s): earth (228), earthquakes (48), geology (81)

In the Classroom

Even middle schoolers will be able to understand the earthquake simulator if you demonstrate on an interactive whiteboard. High schoolers can do it themselves after a demonstration, perhaps working with a partner. Start by sharing some of the aftermath photos so students get a sense of the impact of earthquakes. We do recommend that you play with the site a bit before using it in class.

This site accompanies a PBS episode on the sinking of the Andrea Doria. Following a "crime scene investigation" model, the episode looks at the controversy behind the collision between the Doria and the Stockholm in 1956, and efforts to examine the wreck off the coast of New England. The site's usefulness is not limited to history teachers, however! There is a significant portion devoted to the science of deep sea diving.

In the Classroom

Use the excellent flash-enabled interactive "Diving Deep" to illustrate the physical properties of deep-sea diving that can endanger the lives of divers. There is also a detailed lesson plan in the Teacher Toolbox section that offers hands-on activities for exploring gas laws that affect divers, and printable handouts that provide questions on the lessons.

As you study the decades of the 20th century, this site could also be an interesting independent project source for a student interested in the 50's. Gifted students as young as upper elementary might find it a springboard for a comparison of maritime disasters.

This is a companion site to a PBS series on the forces world wide that are affecting global population. There is a wealth of information here on historical trends in population growth, the impact of population on the environment, and the continuing imbalance between the rich and the poor in the world. There are flash-enabled slide shows illustrating global population growth over history, and the impact of that growth on the environment. Don't miss the population counter that starts when you load the home page. It shows how many babies are born in the world since the page first loaded, and the impact is startling! A teacher's guide gives further information about using the resources in the classroom.

tag(s): demographics (19), environment (317), population (60)

In the Classroom

Several excellent interactives might make a strong visual impact if used on an interactive whiteboard. There is an interactive quiz that might be a good discussion starter, and matching "game" that shows demographic trends in four contrasting countries: the US, Japan, Kenya and India. These interactives give impact to discussions of the global economy, world wide environmental changes and the balance of power between "developing" and "developed" countries. Put the population counter up on a projector as student enter the room to activate prior knowledge or provide an anticipatory set.

This site takes readers on a detailed, fourteen-day adventure down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. The trip includes breath-taking photos and a few videos of the river, canyon walls, plant life and local animals. The site maintains a wealth of knowledge on geologic history. Be prepared for some lengthy reading.

tag(s): geology (81)

In the Classroom

As they read the descriptions of the tour, students will find first-hand accounts of some of the research being done on the Colorado River. Since most teachers cannot take an actual trip to the Grand Canyon, use this site on laptops or a projector for a virtual trip. Ask questions requiring students to find examples of various types of rock or evidence of the geologic history of the canyon. A simple set of "why?" questions about various images will challenge students to apply what they know about rock, sediment, erosion, and more.

This tool allows you to calculate your contribution to greenhouse gasses by answering questions about lifestyle and behavior. A kids' version is also available. The calculator is intended for adults but is quite applicable to teenagers, especially those who drive a car. This site also includes ways to "offset" carbon emissions through tree planting, etc. Some of the information is part of initiatives for which the organization solicits funds, but the research and data are informative and sobering.

This resource was featured in a recent New Teacher Hotline Podcast as one of the Tech Toolbox resources. Hear more about it on the podcast .

tag(s): carbon (21), carbon footprint (11), climate (92), climate change (64), earth (228), earth day (112), environment (317)

In the Classroom

Share this and the kids' calculator on your teacher web site and ask students to come up with a plan to decrease their carbon emissions as part of your unit on environmental issues. This could be a "real world" connection in geography study of natural resources or a science class on climate change.
