Popcorn! offers a bowlful of information on that universally-loved food. Not only does it list the history behind the food, but it provides games, trivia, arts and crafts, printables, reading and math lessons, science and health lessons and a booklist dedicated to the topic of...POPCORN! Who knew there were so many children's books based on this simple treat?

This site requires Flash. Some of the lessons and printables require Adobe Acrobat. You can get both from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

In the Classroom

The site can also be incorporated into social studies and history for the many uses of popcorn by various cultures. For example, include the site in a Thanksgiving unit. Follow the seed to plant information for a life cycle unit in science. Add it to a health curriculum under healthy eating habits and food groups. Do not forget to check out the worksheets and lessons for math and reading.

HeartPoint has created this site that takes a creative approach to teaching students (and adults) about the heart, heart functions, and heart problems. Highlights include "Foods You Will Love" and "Health Tips". Be sure to visit the "HeartPoint Gallery" for detailed pictures, descriptions and other information.

tag(s): heart (42), nutrition (154)

In the Classroom

FCS and health teachers can use this site for student research or scavenger hunts about the heart. The recipe section would be great for FCS classes learning to plan healthy menus. Health/PE classes studying life habits and disease will find lots of information on cardiac conditions and prevention.

This informative website offers teachers, students, and parents ideas about how to get fit and be healthy. The focus of the site is 1-2-3-4-5: 1 hour of physical activity, 2 hours (or less) of screen time (TV or computer), 3 meals a day, 4 or more glasses of water daily, and 5 servings of fruits and/or vegetables each day. There are also links to help you stay healthy during the holidays, contests, the Learning Center with several webcasts (with full screen options), and more! This site requires Adobe Acrobat and Flash. You can get both from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): obesity (19)

In the Classroom

Share the webcasts in your health and physical education classes using an interactive whiteboard or projector. Try some of the contests as a class. Challenge students to make one of the five suggested changes in the 1-2-3-4-5 project. Why not try one of the changes each month from January through May? Have students create a class wiki to keep track of their successes (and failures) during the challenge. At New Year's, this is a great site to share for resolutions!

Kids a Cookin' is loaded with simple and easy recipes. Each recipe comes with a how-to video. The site also provides lesson plans and a glossary of terms. Be sure to watch the food safety and healthy eating tips videos prior to the start of cooking activities. There is also a link to view this site in Spanish. (The Spanish, Espanol, button is to the left of the title).

If you use the back button, you may end up in a different language! If this happens, click English or Espanol, to return to the preferred language. This site requires RealPlayer and Adobe Acrobat. You can get both from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): cooking (34), directions (20), measurement (159), spanish (108)

In the Classroom

Use the recipes to enrich lessons about sequencing and directions. Students could write the directions according to what they see on the video or practice following the directions by making the recipes in small groups. They could even present their recipes to the class in a cooking show format. Try having students write the directions in a wiki and enhance it with digital photographs. This site would be a beneficial addition to Family and Consumer Science or health units. You may want to add this link to your class website for students to "cook up some fun" at home.

This site offers an interesting mix of activities for all classes to use to celebrate the 100th day! Some are simple: songs, quick art projects, counting activities, or exercises. While others are more complex: learning to say hello in 100 languages, researching 100 African Americans who have made a difference (connecting 100th day activities to Black History month), and many others. This site is a basically a list of activities, but worth taking a look at.

This creative site offers "how to" videos on a WIDE variety of topics. Anyone is able to view the videos, but you must be a member (which is free) to comment on the videos, grade the videos, or submit your own "how to" video. Topics vary; some are appropriate for the classroom - others are definitely NOT appropriate. Some of the general topics that may be useful in the middle school or high school classroom include: alcohol, autos, motorcycles, and planes, business and money, computers and programming, diet and health, education (which features a variety of science experiments and more), film and theater, language (English, Chinese, Hungarian, Russian, Finnish, sign language, Polish, and countless others), music and instruments, travel, and several other topics. Within each of these general topics, there are thousands of specific "how to" videos.

Membership is free and has many perks. You are able to comment and/or grade the video clips or even submit your own video. Registration does require some personal information: a username, password, email address, and date of birth. ALL USERS MUST BE OVER 13-years of age! Check with your administrator about allowing the students to register for this site using fictitious names. You may wish to set up a class registration instead of entering true data into the registration site. Another option is to create a free Gmail account to use for memberships. If you plan to have students register individually, you may want to create your own Gmail account with up to 20 subaccounts for each group of students (by code name or number) within your classes. Here is a blog post that tells how to set up GMail subaccounts to use for any online membership service.

Warning: not all videos are suitable for the classroom. Be sure to preview what you wish to share. If you choose to allow your older students to navigate this site on their own (for research or a class project), be sure to set boundaries on which videos to watch, consequences for going elsewhere, and WATCH CAREFULLY! Some videos explain "how to" do things that are unsafe or inappropriate for school-ages audiences. Wonder How To does include unobtrusive advertisements. This site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): aircraft (24), business (58), money (193), russian (26), sign language (8)

In the Classroom

Use these fabulous "how to" videos for informative writing projects in speech, science, or even with your gifted students. The site does provide excellent research. You may want to link directly to the specific videos you want students to see in order to avoid other, less-desirable options. Share the "how to" videos on an interactive whiteboard or projector as an anticipatory set for a new lesson. For a final project, have students create and submit their own "how to" video using YouTube or using a tool such as SchoolTube (reviewed here).

Teens spend a lot of money. And they influence the spending of a lot more. Marketing companies know this and pitch their products mercilessly to the teen age demographic. With their high need for acceptance and affiliation, teens are also very susceptible to these marketing pitches. This site, part of the well-respected Consumer Reports site, offers commentary in several areas of interest to teens: electronics, cars, money, and shopping. Each topic area includes a full post and a blog. There are also links to news, forums, and videos. Offered without the hype, these reviews and observations may help teens cut through the marketing to learn to make intelligent consumer decisions, and learn to manage their money responsibly.

In order to comment on the blog, you must enter your name and email address. Rather than using your personal or work email, consider creating a Gmail account. If you plan to have students register individually, you may want to create your own Gmail account with up to 20 subaccounts for each group of students (by code name or number) within your classes. Here is a blog post that tells how to set up GMail subaccounts to use for any online membership service.

tag(s): advertising (33), business (58), safety (92)

In the Classroom

Family and consumer science, business, or "Life 101" classes might ask students to research common teen purchases using this site as a resource. Similarly, economics or psychology classes might consider the impact of marketing on purchasing, and how advertisers target and influence their audience. Follow up by having students generate their own blog entry on a product comparison they do as a project.

This must-see site, created by Maryland Public Television, offers some excellent interactive activities and lesson plans all about environmental mysteries (asthma triggers, causes of cancer, food contamination, water borne illness, and others). An excellent addition to a science, health, or physical education class, this site discusses the importance of exercise, effects of mold, how food can get contaminated, and more. The site includes a link for Inside Stories that includes interactive stories about four environmental mysteries (all involving the fictional gym: Reps). The lesson plans include national standards in science, health, language arts, math, and working with others. Lesson ideas are geared for middle grades but could easily be adapted for early high school. They also have video "tie-ins," and lots of details. Some of the activities require Flash and Adobe Acrobat. You can get both from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

In the Classroom

Share the Inside Stories on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Or have students work with a partner to navigate the stories. Have students offer a solution at the end of the story. Check out the ready to go lesson plans. Have your students do research about environmental illnesses and create a wiki or blog discussing the causes and solutions. Have your students create video clips or podcasts about these and other environmental mysteries. Upload the videos to YouTube or TeacherTube (explained here).

Take anatomy and physiology to the next level with heart surgery! Students use a virtual "scalpel" and step-by-step assistance by a surgeon guiding the process to complete heart transplant surgery. In the virtual Nova operating theatre, students are walked through straightforward procedures. Obviously, in real life it is much different, but by the end students have a general idea of the procedures and steps involved. Assistance through the procedure provides directions and prevents mistakes in the procedure. Site requires shockwave plug-in which is available on the site. Many districts block others from installing programs on district computers. Check with your IT department for assistance in obtaining Shockwave, if you do not already have it (try it to see!). You can also get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): heart (42)

In the Classroom

Use information learned in dissection or an anatomy and physiology unit to use the material in a different way. Students can name and describe the functions of the parts of the heart as they perform the transplant. Identify the vessels and other connecting material leading from the heart. Use this activity to compare hearts with other animals for similarities and differences. Use it as part of a study of healthy exercise and the cardio-vascular system in your health/Phys Ed class.

Did you know that Apple flowers are related to roses? Visit this site to learn more about Apples: What is an Apple? What are the parts of an Apple? How many kinds of Apples are there? Where do Apples grow? How do Apples Grow? What about Johnny Appleseed? Each link includes several hyperlinked texts that take you to pictures, diagrams, or more information. There are also buttons on each page that say "read." This feature reads the information aloud to the student. The site also includes interactives, online quizzes, and lots of yummy apple fun perfect for Fall.

Be aware: at the time of this review, at the link How do Apples Grow?, the clickable definition for the word "picked" was not working. You may need to explain to your students that an apple is "picked" when someone pulls the apple off of the apple tree. This site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): fall (16), fall festival (5), seasons (37)

In the Classroom

Are apples part of your Fall curriculum? If so, check out this free resource. Use your projector or interactive whiteboard to share the text, photos, quizzes, and audio with your class. Set up a learning station and have students work in cooperative learning groups to complete one segment of the website (such as the Parts of an Apple). Have students take the quiz together. Culminate your unit with a visit to a local orchard (if applicable) and let students dissect their own apples -- and of course eat their project. That's one snack that healthy for everyone! Extend the apple activities by having students make an apple wiki, complete with digital pictures of apples and apple people, poems, and recipes for apple fun.

In the Classroom

Students can brainstorm health and nutrition concerns among their class and then work in groups to obtain information and dispel myths. Students can survey their class or school to obtain information on what students their age know. Have groups present information to the class learned through the survey and research on the site. Additionally, students can create a newsletter for the class, school, or community or publish information to a wiki or blog. Students can also create a goal for personal wellness and health. Their action plan can use relevant facts and information from this site. For example, students can research TV viewing habits, habits that can make a person fat, and identifying unhealthy food.

This site walks you through a tutorial on creating your own webquest for the parameters YOU want. The tutorial includes planning, building, and getting your webquest published. Best of all-- it is free. This site also includes ready-made webquests in nearly every subject area (math, art, music, social studies, science, etc.) submitted by others like you. There are webquests for all grade level. The webquests are free to use and many include reviews by other educators. An easy to follow webquest matrix is available, with all of the subjects and grade levels. You are also able to do a webquest search for a specific topic. Nearly all of the webquests are in English, but a few are in other languages. Note: the quality of webquests is completely determined by others using the site to create webquests, so PREVIEW before using any webquest in class.

In the Classroom

Search the multitude of webquests that are "ready to go" at this site. If you are looking for a more personal touch, you can create your own webquest for each class, tailored to what you want to cover or want students to research. This site also provides a place to post a personal portfolio of your work (if you choose to include any student work, you must have written permission to do so from the student and his or her parent). You might also want students to create webquests as final products of group research projects. Be sure to provide a meaningful rubric for the essential features.

This game-creation site is useful for almost any grade level from intermediate up to high school. The teacher creates the game appropriate to what the topic and level is. You do have to register, but it is free. Games are as simple as Hangman and go to more complex (but appealing for students) as TV-based game shows such as "Deal or no Deal" and "Who Wants to be a Millionaire." Some of the links and activities require Flash or Quicktime. You can get them from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.. All of these are great tools for helping students study, as well as figure out how they learn best.

In the Classroom

The games created are interactive, so students can work individually, on teams, or on a class computer using an interactive whiteboard or projector. One of the best learning tools for kids is to have them create their OWN games, and this site allows them to do that easily. Use your own teacher account so you do not need student emails at school. Ideally, students can create games for either learning or review for their fellow classmates. Assign a small group of students to work with different game templates and then act as "host" of the game to quiz the rest of the class: an ideal review or way to present student research information an a topic and keep the "audience" engaged.

Learn about exercise and eating healthy at this kid-friendly website. Tony didn't get chosen for the football (what Americans call soccer) team, and he is devastated. Come along with Tony and his friends to learn about how his choices kept him off of the team. Learn about the four food groups, nutrients, the importance of exercise, and several other topics about health and fitness. There is a link for teachers with objectives, curriculum standards, and more details about this interactive website. Other highlights include an online review quiz, drag and drop health activities, research and facts, tips for choosing the right food, and much more. Since this site was created in the UK, Americans may notice some minor spelling and grammar differences. This site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..
