In this web detective hunt from the University of Leicester (England) students help a scientist figure out what's making the construction workers on the Panama Canal project ill, and work to develop a cure for yellow fever. Plenty of scientific backup to explain how the cure was developed!

The University of Florida has compiled a listing of insects holding the record for the biggest, fastest, smallest, etc., etc. A good collection of insect trivia, as well as a potential starting point for a more serious exploration of insects and the way they live.

tag(s): insects (69)

In the Classroom

While some of the world records might make students a little queasy, (see the worlds biggest bug) this site would be an excellent way to get students interested in the study of insects. Share the site on an interactive whiteboard or projector, and allow students to explore it in groups. What would be interesting is to see how many record holders were local insects. Have students create a digital record book, including images on a site such as Bookemon, reviewed here.

A journalistic report on Dolly, the cloned lamb born in 1997 near Edinburgh, Scotland. The information is presented in a clear and concise manner, and uses graphics to enhance students' learning of the material. This site could be used as required reading when studying genetics. The site is best suited to middle and high school students. From "New Scientist" magazine.

tag(s): dna (69), engineering (124)

In the Classroom

Share this site on an interactive whiteboard or projector, allowing students to read it before a class discussion. This site provides a lot of information and questions that students can use to debate the ethics or probability of human cloning. Too often science classes don't seem to have time for the ethical debates, and this would be the perfect way for students to begin questioning innovations in science. Prepare yourself for a very intense debate if using this!

The Space Race grew out of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union, the most powerful nations after World War II. At the end of the Cold War, the United States and Russia agreed to build a space station and pursue other joint ventures in space. A contest that began in fear and enmity has become a partnership. At this site you get to participate in this race!

NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab offers this java-based site which lets students see what the solar system, or any part thereof, would look like from another location. You can see what the stars and planets would look like from the surface of Saturn or one of Jupiter's moons. The site is both a great learning tool and a wonderful simulation example.

This very well planned site helps you and your students understand and explore astronomy. It explains astronomy in everyday language. It contains a calendar of celestial events. There are also tips for everyone. There is also software and astronomy hardware for sale. The site includes pictures of many astronomic events, lists of astronomy clubs, planetariums, science museums, and observatory locations from all around the world. You can find your hometown facility and print it out in minutes!

tag(s): stars (61)

In the Classroom

Probably the coolest part of this website is entitled "observing," which provides helpful calendars, explanations and images of solar events that are happening soon locally. Refer to this site for upcoming solar phenomena, and encourage students to go out and observe on their own. If there are events in the area, assign students to observe and create a report based on what they saw! If students are able to gather images of the event, we recommend a tool like UtellStory, reviewed here. This site allows users to narrate a picture, and could provide some cool presentations in class.
