A beautiful, slightly difficult to navigate site from the National Geographic which will feature new natural history themes throughout 1999. The trick appears to be to click on the little icons on the top menu bar to move from one section to another. New sections will be added over the course of the year.

tag(s): ecology (135)

In the Classroom

This site is a little out of date, but offers captivating information and images concerning poverty and other cultural geography themes. Use this site as a learning center or station within a cultural geography classroom. This activity works best if students have a graphic organizer to use as a follow-along - we recommend using a site such as Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here) for easy to make sheets.

This site offers a collection of outline maps for the continents, the US, and other nations suitable for reproduction and reuse in the classroom. Most are GIF files, but there are a few PDF files as well. From Houghton Mifflin.

tag(s): maps (287)

In the Classroom

These maps are excellent for a History or Geography teacher attempting to refresh students on the political geography of an area. Before teaching a unit on the Middle East or Asia, refresh and quiz students with these worksheets to help with both map skills and understanding of the area. Often a weak point in student knowledge, it can never hurt to help students become more aware of political geography.

- Grades 9-12 - This unit is based on the debate over damming the Hetch Hetchy Valley in Yosemite National Park, which helped mark the evolution of the conservation movement. The unit has two parts: the first details conservation through the rationales of various historical figures, and the second outlines the case study of Hetch Hetchy. The format of the second part includes a mock hearing where students present their researched ideas. In the course of the unit, students will also compare historical ideas of conservation with current ones.

tag(s): conservation (127), ecology (135), environment (317)

In the Classroom

Be sure help your weaker readers and ESL students by sharing the vocabulary words prior to reading, either on a handout or by projecting on an interactive whiteboard and highlighting them in the text as you come to them.

This site from the National Museum of Natural History offers a paleontologist's view of dinosaurs, with most content devoted to fossil remains in the museum collections. This is a scientific exhibit which shows students the factual basis on which many popularized interpretations of "dinosaur lifestyles" have been based.

tag(s): dinosaurs (57)

In the Classroom

Allow students to explore the interactive tour on the interactive whiteboard or projector. It does take a few seconds to load, but once up the tour is a great way to show how the Smithsonian treats the artifacts the get and learn more facts about dinosaur. Use this site at the end of a unit on dinosaurs to review in a different way! It might not be the same as going to the museum itself, but it isn't a bad replacement.
