his simulation lesson casts students in the role of a city administrator facing an oncoming winter storm. Participants must figure out how to fight the storm, maintain city services, and ensure public safety, all while learning about how these storms form and spread. Lots of interesting "what if" discussion possibilities.

tag(s): acid rain (5), ecology (135), pollution (67)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource during a lesson or unit on acid rain. Have cooperative learning groups explore the site, with the intentions of summarizing the information in a multimedia presentation. Have cooperative learning groups create online books using a tool such as Bookemon, reviewed here. Have groups tell the "acid" rain, explaining where and how it happens most. Great for a pre-discussion activity about the efforts to stop acid rain.

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 (70)

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 (127)

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!
