Are you looking to collect and analyze class data easily? Choose from 16 different ways to view data. Decide the items you wish to count (the free plan allows up to 1000 different things to be counted.) Also determine the category the items can be placed into (use up to 24 different categories in the free account.) Add a statement panel to your display panel to add notes and make comments about the data. Be sure to click the How To at the bottom of the home page to learn how to use the Daytum site. Also click the "Watch A Screencast" link for additional help. Data can also be collected via text or Twitter tweets.

tag(s): data (148), infographics (42), statistics (122), visualizations (14)

In the Classroom

Some of the best data to collect is anything that is a habit: types of drinks students drink at home, hours watching TV/playing games/doing homework, meals/fast food, etc. Use the site to collect data from other students or classes for a Math, Social Studies, or Psychology class. Use Daytum for a Science class by counting animals at a feeder, recycling efforts, amount of paper used in the classroom, days of rain/no rain, etc. Anything that can be counted can be used by Daytum! Be sure to identify students who will be counters and recorders of the data.

Before using Daytum, be sure to follow the directions on the How To page. Be sure to decide the goal first and the data to be collected. Having an idea of the kind of data to be collected as well as how it will be displayed is necessary before using. This tool is best used as a class activity rather than creating individual accounts. Create a class account and use a class computer or computer attached to a projector or whiteboard to collect data as students enter the room. Set up the parameters of the data to be collected (or enlist the help of an ambitious student.)

Sound Sleeping contains a great interactive sound-mixing tool. Create music with soundtracks of drums or flutes and the ambient sounds of nature. This soundboard helps you generate background music perfect for meditation, yoga, napping, writing, or quiet reflection.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): behavior (46), mental health (26), senses (28), sound (101), sounds (68), stress (14)

In the Classroom

Enhance student listening ability with this sound-mixing tool. Ask students to visit this site to create their own musical mix. Afterward, ask others to guess the tracks in the music. Students can also identify which speaker the soundboard's pan tool is sending various sounds. Activities such as these are the perfect addition to a science unit about the five senses. Consider having students create a their own personal mix to use while learning deep breathing, practicing creative visualizations, or engaging in class relaxation exercises. You could also plan these sounds during creative writing exercises or independent reading time. Headphones or speakers are necessary for this site, if you don't wish to share with the entire class. Students in need of "cooling off" time may enjoy playing Bubble Burst. Choose to create music with the vibes soundboard and student creations will automatically play with Flickr photographs of nature. Emotional support teachers may find this tool useful in helping students develop self-control mechanisms. Share this link on your class web page and/or in a parent newsletter and suggest ways to enhance relaxation techniques at home.

Enter the world of an interactive coral reef that is in jeopardy! The coral reef, located in the Caribbean, is now facing a dilemma of increasing tourism and putting the coral reef in jeopardy, or taking away the economic growth that could be possible for the island residents. Choose a character; an owner of a family hotel, a lifelong resident, or a tourist, and make your decision. This engaging interactive, allows you to watch how each perspective affects the coral reef. Additional links listed add a deeper understanding of the problems presented.

tag(s): coral (12), ecosystems (88), marine biology (33)

In the Classroom

Use this interactive coral reef in a study of nonrenewable resources, conservation, or ecosystems. Put the site on the interactive whiteboard or projector and watch your class jump into the water! As a starting point for Socrates seminar, debates, and persuasive writing, this site offers a great variety of passionate debate! Using this site as a model, have your students make a similar situation with other ecosystems. Have students create other scenarios for non-renewable resources, arguments for alternative energy, or even bring closer to home with a local dilemma. In writing class, develop an interactive based on the book Hoot by Carl Hiaasen. Why not have students create a Prezi presentation (reviewed here), simple to use with endless possibilities. Use the model for other scenarios and develop other story ideas. Use a problem based learning scenario into ways humans affect the environment. These activities will engage every learner!

Clorox Classrooms is designed to help teachers or parents explain good hygiene practices and the importance of protecting yourself against "germs" and bacteria as well as where to find them in school and at home. Lesson plans, whiteboard interactives, and take home activities are all included here. Links lead to grants to be applied for by classroom teachers and coupons for Clorox products.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): bacteria (30), diseases (66), hygiene (10)

In the Classroom

Find great lesson plans that would be great in a health and science cross curricular unit. Students use simple tools such as thermometers and more to collect data and compare results. For a creative extension and informational writing activity, have students create their own "germ" profiles by using a paint program to draw a picture of an imaginary germ, its f vorite environment, and the things humans can do to keep it under control. Use a tool such as Thinglink, reviewed here, to upload student-drawn images and have students narrate about them.

Magical Microbes: Chomp! is a bacteria simulation activity with three levels of difficulty. Each level has two different organisms to choose, and the object is to properly feed and nurture the microbes so that they stay alive. The simulation is easy to navigate with its straightforward onscreen instructions and bright graphics. Magical Microbes: Chomp! is part of the Kid's Science Challenge website.

tag(s): bacteria (30), diseases (66), hygiene (10), microorganisms (14)

In the Classroom

Have students try this activity as an introduction to bacteria. Allow students to "play" for about fifteen minutes, depending on the grade of the students. Then discuss what the students have discovered. Have students investigate further using other sources to find facts on the six different bacteria included in the simulation. This is a great way to engage students in the study of bacteria. Once students have learned more about the bacteria, have students replay the simulation and evaluate how much more effective they are at keeping the bacteria alive.

If you click on the lizard on the right at the top of the page, he gives the you a challenge: "Can you think of a brand new way that microbes can help us?" Have small groups of students brainstorm about how else microbes could be used. Have students use a tool such as bubbl.us (reviewed here) to create and share concept maps of their ideas.

At Skyrider for Kids you will find short, high interest nonfiction articles on a variety of topics (suspension bridges, owls, the food chain, and more), plus some follow-up activities. Most articles have either an animated image, audio, or video for the students to use.

tag(s): interactive stories (32)

In the Classroom

Here's the answer for "I'm done, what should I do now?" If you have one computer or more in your classroom, you can have the students choose a topic to read about, or you can choose for them. Some of the topics have follow up activities and some don't. It depends on whether you want the students to pursue a topic or just gain a little knowledge about it. Use your interactive whiteboard or projector to show students the nonfiction, interactive article about the Golden Gate suspension bridge. Break down all the interactive parts for them. Then challenge students or student groups to create their interactive poster on Glogster, demonstrating their assimilation of the information your class just studied. Whether your students are studying Roman architecture, cells in science, equations in math, or any other unit of study that can have changing features, have them create an online, interactive poster known as a "glog," using GlogsterEDU, reviewed here.

This easy to use calculator estimates the number of calories needed to gain, maintain, or lose weight. Simply input age, weight, height, exercise level, and gender to receive an estimate of daily calorie needs to maintain current weight. Information is given to help with losing or gaining weight. Other informative links on the site offer diet and exercise advice for beginners as well as articles about nutrition and exercise. Be careful: some links are advertisements. Be sure to check out the diet tools link that offers many other calculators for health, body fat and density, healthy weight range, and more. This same link also offers information about vitamins and minerals and healthy recipes. Be sure to preview the comments at the bottom of the site, as some may be inappropriate to share with younger students.

tag(s): fitness (49), nutrition (154)

In the Classroom

During your health unit, ask students to estimate how many calories they think they need or take in each day to maintain their current weight. Then compare their estimate to the actual number based on their personal information. Assign students different articles from the site to read and review. If you are hesitant to use actual student's information due to privacy issues, create fictional characters to use for estimating and comparing. Use this site when presenting a unit on estimation, after using specific examples to set as benchmarks, have students estimate new examples before finding actual figures. Share this site with a Physical Education specialist when collaborating on a health unit.

Use this website to help teach younger students about health and personal hygiene. Share a webisode on the interactive whiteboard or projector to introduce the concept of hygiene, then have students work in learning centers with one of the interactives on the interactive whiteboard or projector as a station for learning. The interactives are not just about game play, but rather provide the participants with information and facts as they progress through the steps.

This website offers self-evaluation tools, quizzes, personal examples, healthy living strategies and plans, and extensive reading about five big cancer causers: tobacco, sun, being overweight, not eating well, and not exercising regularly. Designed for teens, the ideal start is to do the self-evaluation first and then select whichever other area works best for your group. Reading the personal examples under the "Real Life" heading helps really bring home problems associated with cancer risks. Suggestions for teachers, as well as worksheets helping students to see how to bring about change in their lives, make the site very user friendly.

tag(s): diseases (66), drugs and alcohol (19), fitness (49)

In the Classroom

Use this site in health classes and physical education units. The ideal start is to do the self-evaluation first and then select whichever other area works best for your group. Reading the personal examples under the "Real Life" heading helps to explain some problems associated with cancer risks.

This is an extensive collection of ready to go, teacher-made SMART Notebook activities. This collection covers all grade levels and subject areas. Click Elementary, Middle School, Jr. High, or High School to find the many (MANY) resources). The topics vary greatly and the quantity is impressive. You must have Smart Board software installed on your computer to open these files. Some files will work using the SMART Notebook Express online viewer available here. (Download the notebook file from Longwood's collection to your desktop and then upload to SMART Notebook Express site.)

In the Classroom

These lessons are great for the new SMART Board user or the seasoned pro. Use these if you need a lesson but don't have time to create one from scratch. View the lessons and use them to help you create your own lesson. Click the different tabs to view the different grade levels. Please note that all of these activities require SMART Notebook software (which comes with SMART brand IWBs). Don't have SMART brand IWB's? Some files will work using the SMART Notebook Express online viewer available here. (Download the notebook file from Longwood's collection to your desktop and then upload to SMART Notebook Express site.) If you use a lesson, go to the staff directory under District Information -> Email Directory and send the creator a thank you. Think how great it would be to receive an email from a teacher "out there" thanking YOU for sharing?

View this video series to understand how ACS prizes affect people and our society. Bring the technological advances to light with each of these fascinating science discoveries. New feature videos appear on the page such as "Exploring Life on Mars," "Taming the Red Tides," and others. Learn about food poisoning caused by algae, eco-green transportation, creating smaller computer chips, and more! Check back for more videos to be added monthly. Preview articles about upcoming videos can be seen on the page as well. Subscribe to iTunes or YouTube to automatically receive new videos as they are added to the site. Feel free to embed links to the Prized Science videos on your blog, wiki, or site.

tag(s): pollution (66), space (205)

In the Classroom

View the videos and identify the science content that is understood in the video. Be sure to point out how science leads to technological breakthroughs that change the lives of those on this planet. Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Then have students explore this site independently or in small groups. Assign small groups different topics to view/explore and then create multimedia presentations to share with the class. Have students make online "tours" to explain the topic using Screenr (reviewed here). This is a great find for gifted students (logic or unusual topics, for example or a site where students can do more in-depth investigation related to a "standard" curriculum topic)! This site is excellent for enrichment or for gifted students. Include it on your class web page for students to access both in and out of class.

Play the role of "population manager" in this game about endangered lions. After a brief introduction, choose tigers to breed in hopes of returning them to their original habitat. Activity choices are based on maximizing disease resistance or maintaining genetic diversity. It is your goal to help the tigers survive based on offspring created from your choices.

tag(s): animals (276), genetics (90), habitats (84), reproduction (9)

In the Classroom

This activity would work well for individual or pairs of students in a lab or on laptops. This site includes many classroom materials such as data tables on genetic diversity, disease resistance procedures and extension activities provided by the New York Times and others.
