This site contains lots of images and detailed descriptions of these large, often furry arachnids. While it's not the sort of thing that everyone will love, there's lots of material for research papers, class presentations, and the like. This may be one case where viewing on the computer is better than seeing the real thing!

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 (64)

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.

Eastman Kodak's office tower is the site for this web cam focused on a nest of peregrine falcons. Viewers can check the state of the nest from four different angles, and the site offers a chronology of this year's nesting. The quality of the enlarged images is surprisingly good. This one is worth several visits.

Take advantage of the free lesson plans and printables the website offers! The site has activities on the food chain, journal assignments, and graphing the baby falcons. Save this site and use it as a learning center or station to complement a unit on the study of birds or on the food chain.
