Introduce the earth's different biomes with this unit, created by TeachersFirst. Biomes include coniferous forest, deciduous forest, tropical rainforest, tundra, ocean, fresh water, desert, and the savannah. Each link includes information and pictures. Students can complete an on-line research project on a biome of their choice, using selected web resources, or they can learn the basics of biomes with the information provided in the unit. There are links to the introduction, to learn more about the project, and even a teachers link (with a TON of class activity ideas).

tag(s): biomes (116), earth (228), earth day (112), ecosystems (88)

In the Classroom

Have students work in cooperative learning groups to explore this site. Challenge students to create multimedia presentations about the biomes. How about a Powerpoint? Or have students narrate a photo of the biome using a site such as Thinglink, reviewed here. Other options include creating a wiki, blog, or video.

The goal of this site is to educate youth about philanthropy and giving their time and knowledge for the global good. To do this, they offer over 1400 free lesson plans for teachers, parents, and community leaders. Lessons are coded to state standards and can be searched by grade level, keyword, subject, or academic or philanthropy standard. Some lessons are geared toward private or religious schools and are clearly labeled as such. Lessons include subject, key concepts, vocabulary, objectives, materials needed, approximate time, procedures, extensions, handouts, and much more. An example of a grade 3-5 lesson would be Cool Kids Compost which explores responsible use of resources by gathering data about lunchroom waste. Don't let the concept of philanthropy keep you from exploring the site, there are many great classroom lessons available for all subjects.

Learn about erosion with this easy to understand site. When prompted, choose forces of nature to change a flat piece of land into the eroded land pictured. If the wrong force of nature is chosen, a red X appears. When correct answers have been chosen, the actual process appears in order to illustrate how the processes make the first scene change into the last one.

tag(s): erosion (17), glaciers (14), landforms (45), volcanoes (61), water (130)

In the Classroom

Use this simple and effective site to identify the common processes involved in erosion. Demonstrate how the site works on your interactive whiteboard and projector. Then allow students to explore the site on classroom computers or in the computer lab. As students work through the site, have them note what creates the eroded area. Students can either take notes, draw pictures, or record audio. During class discussion, name the processes and forces for greater understanding. You may want to have pairs investigate and use Postica (reviewed here), to create web-based sticky notes on a sticky board about the aspect of erosion they had time to investigate. Use the board as a visual prompt for review topics.

This site provides access to interactive science projects going on around the country. It will help students increase their resources, knowledge base, and give them another link to bringing the outside world inside school walls. This website is meant to link you and your students with the resources and expertise of working scientists. This free initiative allows teachers to post projects, and "put out the call" for professional scientists' help.

tag(s): mentoring (12), science fairs (25), scientists (68), service projects (25)

In the Classroom

You could post an assignment that would benefit from the expertise of a working scientist. There is a sign up page, but there is no cost to do so. Once the project is posted, it is a matter of time before being connected to a scientist. Consider asking the scientist if he/she will consider having a Skype reviewed here conference. Skype makes FREE audio/video phone calls from computer to computer anywhere in the world. Skype with students in another state or country. Be sure to use your projector so the entire class can see the expert! Have your students start brainstorming questions they will want to ask the expert. Be sure they know how to frame their questions so they don't end up with a yes or no answer.

This site aggregates all types of videos from around the world. Captioning makes these enhanced YouTube videos accessible to English language learners, speakers of different languages, and those who need language support in general. You can search for videos by categories which are constantly being updated. Find current events, music, and more. In addition to offering the captioning with the news clips, all news items offer "tags" to provide some important vocabulary. Also, there are separate sections on the website for common mispronunciations, idioms, and slang, targeted specifically at ESL/ELL students. You should preview and preselect the videos rather than allowing students to randomly search at this site, since some content may not be fitting for your classroom. Many schools block YouTube, so verify availability at school.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): hearing impaired (6), news (261)

In the Classroom

If filtering blocks your at-school access, use a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here to convert online videos such as the ones you find on YouTube into a portable format you can play at school. World language students will enjoy hearing the news in other languages, but also seeing the English translations. If you have students in your classroom who are reading below grade level, have them watch the video twice: once to listen to the words, and the second time to read along with the dialog. Have students view these sample videos and then work in cooperative learning groups to create their own videos on topics they are currently learning in science, current events, or nearly any other subject area. Share the videos using a site such as TeacherTube reviewed here. High school social studies classes can compare news coverage from different countries/cultures about the same event to analyze the "spin" or bias.

This easy to use site allows you to make interactive online quizzes or use pre-made quizzes sorted by subject. You can upload classes, assign quizzes, and receive scores (if students are registered.) Current quizzes available range from Drama to Law to Math (and all core subjects). The format allows for any topic, and the enjoyable characters help to maintain student interest. Note: This site was created in the United Kingdom and follows the curriculum of the United Kingdom. You may notice slight spelling/pronunciation differences.

tag(s): assessment (99), quiz (85), quizzes (97)

In the Classroom

You can create and/or assign quizzes for any topic. You need not register students to simply assign an activity, but registration is required to keep and report scores. You simply check which countries to include to narrow activity searches, so decide whether alternate spellings might be an issue for your curriculum topic. Students can use quizzes either at home or in school. Use this site to help students review concepts and receive immediate feedback on their performance. There is a direct link in the quizzes to send a link to registered students or to share on social networking sites such as Facebook, iGoogle and Blogger. Assign small groups of students to create their own quiz for any topic you might be studying. Students can challenge their peers as a review.

tag(s): ecosystems (88), food chains (22), oceans (148), pollution (66)

In the Classroom

Use this resource when discussing food chains, ecosystems, and any environmental topic. As oceans are one of the biggest places we are seeing environmental degradation, many ecological concepts can be taught just by looking at what is going on in the oceans. Assign students a project to learn about an ocean species and create an informational multimedia or conventional project such as a wanted poster or a save the animal poster. Have students create online posters on paper or do it together as a class using a tool such as Web Poster Wizard (reviewed here). Research our impacts on the ocean and create an awareness campaign including posters, research information on a class website, and blog posts about the ocean as a resource. Find scientists you can connect to in the classroom that can discuss about this fabulous resource. Have students brainstorm topics about the oceans and let them search for relevant articles that relate to their interests. Do one-sentence summaries of these short articles to practice summary writing.

Want to use YouTube videos but cannot play them at school? Download your video using this free service. No software download required, but you will need to have Java on your computer. Find a video you want to save, then copy and paste the video's URL at KeepVid. The easiest way for your download to be successful to insert "keep" into the URL before the "YouTube." In our experience, this tool works without causing other problems. You may encounter warnings about applet security; we ignored these, but you may choose to do otherwise. If you decide to proceed, be sure to "allow" KeepVid access when your computer asks, and click "run" to begin the download. Select the quality you want to save the file to download (low, medium, or high quality FLV, MP3, or MP4 format.) Use KeepVid with a variety of video sites. If unable to view your file, either download a FLV viewer such as FLV Player (find a free one advertised on the site,) or convert your file into a more usable format. Drag the KeepVid button from their site into your browser's links toolbar. Find your video. When it starts to stream, click the KeepVid button in your toolbar. Choose the link to download and save.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): conversions (22), movies (64), video (253)

In the Classroom

Use this service to backup videos on your YouTube channel. Use to download and save videos at home that you wish to show to students, especially if they are blocked at school. Users must be able to find, copy, and paste the URL of the video to be downloaded. Once the program starts, you will be prompted to save it. If you want to use the video at school, you would save it to a USB stick.The MP4 format is fast, and it will play on an Apple or Windows computer. If you want to download in FLV format, you must also be able to play FLV files on the computer or be able to download an FLV viewer. No registration or login is required. This should primarily be a teacher resource. If using with students, discuss appropriate and inappropriate uses of the technology as well as choosing necessary videos. Be careful about videos found on the KeepVid site. These may not be family or student appropriate.

Use this free resource for an inside look at the general principles, methods, and motivations that underlie all of science. Take a site tour or view specific topics such as "Scientific Evidence," "Science and Society," and others. Don't miss the interactive pages of "How Science Works" that show scientific method as a dynamic, iterative process, not an oversimplified list of steps. Find other resources in the Resource Library. Find classroom activities, standards, and strategies in "Teaching Resources." Find "Frequently Asked Questions" about science process or even submit your own! Learn about what is science by clicking on "Science 101." Find great teaching resources and advice in the "For teachers" section. The Teachers area is divided into grade sections to find resources easily.

In the Classroom

Share the interactive "How Science Works" on a projector as you introduce scientific method. Use "Correcting Misconceptions" to aid in helping students with common misconceptions that hinder learning. Use case studies from the "Science in Action" section of the resources. Using case studies is one of the best methods to teach scientific concepts and provides interest in studying something more relevant to their lives. The teacher resources provide great examples of using data to generate hypotheses and learn scientific processes and content. Use the suggestions to convert your present activities into ones that will help students understand the processes of science. Ideas, suggestions, and activities that are explicit and complete.

In the Classroom

This site is great for students to upload photos from field trips or other events. Keep track of project accomplishments by uploading pictures of the process. Have a class project such as DNA models or types of plants? Get them out of the classroom by taking pictures and uploading them to Drop Event. Make a collection for local history or photos of lab results during a bridge-building or pumpkin seed counting activity. Collect images that students can then use in Thinglink, reviewed here, "lab reports" about their discoveries. Place the link to the event page you have created and invite parents to view the creations. Take snapshots to create a Day In The Life event for your classroom. What better way to share memories! Have parent volunteers? Have them upload their pictures too! Whatever project or event you have, sharing and collaborating with Drop Event is easy and fun!

The New York Science Teacher Movie Sheet page offers fast help for turning good movies into academic endeavors. How many times do we find a regular movie that we would like to use for science class but do not have the time to create a good guide or question sheet for it? This is a good solution. Movie sheets, all submitted by teachers, are searchable by subject content and a few are searchable by series. The guides are printable, and they make a great "in-a-pinch" solution.

tag(s): movies (64), worksheets (59)

In the Classroom

These printable movie worksheets are a great way to supplement a video. Try using them to amp up the educational punch of everyday movies or to ask different questions about science videos you may already have. Challenge students to create their own worksheets to accompany a video. Have cooperative learning groups view a video together (while other groups view other videos) and then create an online worksheet using Google Docs, reviewed here. Use the online worksheets with the other various groups as they view all of the videos. If you find a movie/video title that sounds good based on the activity sheets here, search for it on YouTube, perhaps downloading it using a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here.
