This one is hard to describe, but it offers a beautifully designed collection of close-ups of insects and their environments. Surprisingly well-written descriptions accompany these images, and there's a "magnify" feature that lets users see even more of the details. Younger students will enjoy the images, and secondary students will appreciate the descriptions and explanations.

This collection of lesson plans from National Geographic Society provides standards-coordinated habitat lessons for primary, upper elementary, middle, and high school students. While the lessons themselves are entirely text, each contains links to other NGS resources that offer graphics, images, and other visuals. These are very complete resources, but will require some preparation time.

This Canadian site is just what the bear buffs need - an introduction to the habitat and lifestyle of North America's most famous bears. There's a large "bear basics" section, along with details on staying safe when sharing space with grizzly bears. But alas, there are very few photos.

tag(s): canada (30)

In the Classroom

During a class on environmental conservation, have students open this site on their individual computers. Looking at the site, what do they think would be the most beneficial actions to take to conserve land for bears? Use this site as a launchpad for a discussion on human-animal interaction, and the affect humans have had on their habitat. This site would also be a useful source for any student working on a research project, making it an excellent site to post on the class wiki or web page so students could access it both in and out of the classroom!

The US Geological Survey offers this page full of information about earthquakes, earthquake monitoring, and earthquake safety. The site includes several features that offer real-time reporting data.

Giving geology or earth science students the "big picture" can be difficult. This site from the US Geologic Survey uses colors and topographic maps to explain geologic time periods and phenomena. Along the way, there are lots of links to specific time periods and features showing where interesting things were happening millions of years ago. This one is worth some exploration; there's lots to see.

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.
