This companion site to the PBS program of the same name offers nuggets of information on a broad range of topics about the ocean, including weather phenomena, navigation problems, and life in the seas. Broadband users will find short video clips on many of the topics. While there is no separate education section, elements of the site may be useful in an ocean study unit.

The Exploratorium's climate change site is a data analysis goldmine. There are dozens of examples of how the earth's climate has or has not shifted over the past 100 years, and most of these have detailed graphs illustrating the data. Middle and high school teachers will find this one a great tool for illustrating both the science and the math behind the efforts to monitor the earth's climate.

This site from a privately operated tiger "sanctuary" offers interesting information on various species of tigers (there are more than you might think). Those with fast connections may also want to check out the several live tigercams showing live pictures of the tigers in their environments. There's some decent report research material here

This site offers a three-part unit on the oceans that emphasizes the effects that humans can have in destroying or preserving marine ecosystems and species. There are detailed lesson plans and supplementary materials. There are also numerous sound clips to accompany the lessons, and we had difficulty making these work properly. That said, the content is perfectly sufficient without the sound.

Designed specifically for students, this site is a collaboration between several parks and schools in the Washington, DC area. The goal: explore ecological issues through field trips to the various parks and sharing data and observations. Unregistered users can examine and download the various data. We assume the volume of data available will increase in the coming months.

Though not designed specifically for students, this site, containing a wealth of information on ways to minimize dangers to people from forest fires, includes many examples of how man and his environment can be at odds with one another. In addition to the scientific issues involved in fire control and prevention, this site would contribute to a discussion on ecosystems and encroachment into wilderness areas.

tag(s): fire (27), fire prevention (11)

In the Classroom

As your students study about safety or environmental issues, include this site as a resource. Ask students to create a fire pro and con list as they discuss the more obvious safety issues of fire and the balancing role that fire can play in renewing habitats and nature's cycles. Use a graphic organizer tool such as bubbl.us (reviewed here) to map out the many impacts that wildland fires can have.

Here's a nifty tool that calculates the measurements you'll need for an exact scale model of the solar system. Just enter the size of the Sun and the page calculates everything else. Because of the vast size differences involved, it may be difficult to create a model in a small space, but just comparing the numbers can be instructive.

tag(s): planets (127), solar system (121), sun (72)

Those teaching space or earth science will find this one a great tool for developing models and comparisons.

This is a collection of copyright-free, downloadable historical images of wildlife in Alaska. Image quality is adequate for either web or most publication use. The search feature - the only way to access images - finds species easily, but doesn't do as well with place names.

If you're looking for photos of early Alaska, this is a great resource.

This webquest gives high schoolers a tall order: come up with a workable renewable energy policy to work with a business.

This one has lots of possibilities.

For the sales pitch presentations, consider having students use Google Docs, reviewed here, instead of Microsoft PowerPoint. This will make upload time faster and grading easier, as they can simply share them with your google account.
