The weather wonks in your class will love this presentation from the University of Illinois about the blizzard that engulfed most of the northeastern US in March, 1993. The site shows how three storms converged to cause one mega-blizzard. Lots of excellent visuals combined with very understandable text.

Ocean Link is a Marine Science web site. It gives information on Marine Science careers and gives very detailed news from the ocean. It would be a great resource for Biology students, as it subdivides marine life by pictures and groupings. You can question a Marine Scientist, find lesson plans and resource packages, or find links to other sites. From Ocean Link of British Columbia, Canada.

This site from Texas A&M University provides information on the characteristics and life cycle of fire ants, and describes how and why they are moving northward. The site also shows how to prevent the ants from becoming a problem in areas inhabited by humans, livestock, and pets. The site could be a wonderful research resource for a biology or ecology report.

tag(s): wetlands (9)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on the different biomes that exist, specifically the everglades. This activity works best if there's a graphic organizer to guide students along. If looking for an easy way to create graphic organizers, we recommend using Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).

This site from New York's'? American Museum of Natural History provides information on several dozen endangered species, their habitats, and efforts to preserve these species and increase their numbers. Each species is really a case study, with significant detail on the plight of that species. Good site for a student interested in some serious research on one or more species.

tag(s): endangered species (38)

In the Classroom

Use this site as an anticipatory set or "activator" to introduce a unit or lesson on a projector. Explain the principles that lay behind endangered species, give a brief tutorial on using the website, and then divide students into small cooperative learning groups. Have each group pick a section on the website, such as "causes," "why help," etc. Have each student review and research their section, with the intentions of providing a brief presentation of their findings to their peers. To show what they have learned from this site, challenge students to create an online graphic to share using Tabblo reviewed here.
