The site from the University of Illinois Extension offers tips and guidelines for controlling or eliminating the effects of pesticides in common household and garden situations. While not intended specifically for students, teachers could use these guidelines as part of a unit on managing the environment, environmental policy, or ecology.

While this day of recognition (April 21) may be better known in California, Muir's legacy of concern for conservation had a national impact, as is evident from this Sierra Club site. In addition to documents relating to creating the California holiday, teachers will find a John Muir Day study guide in Adobe Acrobat format that outlines Muir's life and the conservation issues for which he fought.

This web site from a consortium of several thousand environmental organizations offers a great collection of resources to build awareness of ecological issues and inspire both individual and collective action. These include several games that let students discover how well they and their families conserve resources. Try the Ecological Footprint Quiz.

This one's an oddity. It combines very good, very brief introductory pages on the essentials of geology with very detailed information on geochemistry, exploration, and testing methods. While the basics will work well for high school, or even middle school students, we suspect teachers will find the other content less helpful. Try this one as a reference source for hardness, geologic time periods, and the like.

This is an elaborate unit for middle or high school students that deals with specialized radar systems used to track ocean currents. It includes several simulations and flash animations that let students simulate this tracking process. Because it's fairly complex content, this site might best be used as part of another unit on marine ecosystems, the oceans, or other related materials. Teachers will want to preview this one before using it.

Click on the "Migration Patterns" link for an elegant look at the migration patterns of more than a dozen species from around the world. While designed to promote a film, this site is also a great teaching tool for the study of bird migration. Users with high-speed connections can hear audio and watch video clips of each bird. Truly neat!

You'll find more than just the bear facts (sorry...) at this site. There are sections about brown, black, polar, and grizzly bears, offering decent writeups on each, along with some very nice photographs. A kids' section offers several well-captioned slide shows about bears and their habits. This is a good example of a site that has effective text and visuals without lots of overboard effects. If bears are in your habitat, this one's a great resource.

Developed at Cornell University, this site offers a framework to help high school students conduct environmental science research and participate in communities of fellow student scientists. There are research protocols and discussion groups for a number of topics, as well as links to newly published text materials. The web content, however, seems to stand independently of the print materials. Secondary science, biology, and earth science teachers will find this one interesting.

Want the weather for Wellington? Will it be balmy in Bombay? This UN weather site has weather information for cities all over the world. As such, it's a ready store of climate data for any unit on weather observations, or even to use as an illustration of variances around the globe. It's nothing fancy, but there's lots of information.

BBC's companion web site to the program of the same name offers quizzes (e.g. name this sound...), live web cams, and lots of supplementary information on how mammals live. While teachers won't be able to build a complete curriculum here, the variety of activities could be a neat supplement to elementary or middle school studies of animals and habitats. You'll want a fast connection to make some of these features work well.

That's the problem in this lesson for high school students from the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Introducing the concept that scientific conclusions are subject to revision, the lesson examines recent expeditions to learn more about the fate of these huge mammals that once populated the north American continent. There's science, sleuthing, and more in this lesson.

This site from U.C. Berkeley introduces students to geologic time, the evidence for events in Earth's history, relative and absolute dating techniques, and the significance of the geologic time scale. Suitable for grades 5-10, the site uses animation effectively and is well-organized. Created with support from the National Science Foundation.

tag(s): evolution (101), fossils (46), geologic time (9), logic (239), paleontology (42)

In the Classroom

This webquest is a GREAT way to teach about geologic time in a way that is very student oriented. Save the site as a favorite on classroom computers, and have students work on it in pairs or cooperative learning groups. This could be used in any Earth Science or Geography class.

This well-organized site from U.C. Berkeley provides high school students with an introduction to cladistics (a way of organizing living things by common ancestry and evolutionary relationships) and involves students in posing hypotheses about past life based upon evolutionary history. The site was created with support from the National Science Foundation.

tag(s): dinosaurs (57), evolution (101), fossils (46)

In the Classroom

Use this activity as a learning center or station during a unit on cladistics. Save this site as a favorite on classroom computers and have students complete the activity in pairs or cooperative learning groups. This would be a great activity during a Biology class. As an extension, students can summarize what they learned in an flow chart or graphic organizer. Have students use a site such as Befuddler, (reviewed here).
