This site from the University of California at Santa Barbara lets students explore selected ecology topics in several ways. There are sub-sites dealing with ecology principles, whales, and several other marine species. There's also a very nice section on Data, showing why data collection is important for scientists and illustrating different ways to present data visually. Both sections might be useful in introducing scientific method and experimental procedure.

tag(s): ecology (135), pollution (67), recycling (57)

In the Classroom

This site is a great science find for both teachers and students! Teachers, there is an entire section of free lesson plans and activities that can be easily recreated in your classroom. For students, use this site as learning center or station. Allow students to use the site in cooperative learning groups, for any science unit on biomes, ecology, mammals, or data collection. This site would be a great supplement to book materials.

This site from the British Museum of Natural History is a rich resource for images of dinosaurs. Users can select by body type, country, geologic time period, and other idicies. Apart from the images, which are watermarked, there is only basic information on the size and environment of each creature. While not intended for elementary students, the navigation is simple enough for these students to use effectively in finding images.

tag(s): dinosaurs (58)

In the Classroom

In a unit on dinosaurs, share this site on an interactive whiteboard or projector with students. The function they will most interesting about this site is the area that describes the dinosaurs that existed in their local area! Brief bios are presented on all the dinosaurs, so this could also be a great resource if the students were to research their local dinosaurs for a project.
