This activity about teeth could be easily adapted for any elementary age classroom. There are three sections to this website. The first, "Information Panels" provides students with information about teeth, decay, cavities and more! The second section, "Teeth Identification Diagram" challenges students to identify all of the teeth on the jaw line. The third section, "Tooth Structure Diagram" is another diagramming activity. This activity asks for the names of specific parts of the tooth, gum and jaw. There is a glossary available for all activities. This site requires FLASH.

In the Classroom

For younger students, be sure to try an interactive whiteboard. This is an excellent lesson for all ages - healthy teeth! This is a definite keeper for Dental Health Month.

Divided into introductions at two levels, K- 5 and 6 - 12, the home pages explain briefly what the CIA does. Sites of interest for children include information about the Canine Corps, a story about pigeons, games and a feature on saying no to drugs. Links from the two levels of homepages do not necessarily go to reading matter of the level; for example, the "Who We Are and What We Do" pages require a sophisticated vocabulary and high reading level (9+). Links from features like "Spy-Fi Archives" display some inconsistency in formatting, but the source is a good general one for older children. An extensive book list on drug awareness and abuse prevention is helpful.

In the Classroom

Include this site when studying the three branches of government as a concrete example of one thing the Executive Branch does. Students could explore it on a "scavenger hunt" to learn answers to questions you pose, or the whole class could visit on a projector to learn about what the CIA does. If you ask students to research different government agancies, this would be a great reference site for them to use.

This online game, specifically designed for blind or visually impaired children, was developed by PBS in consultation with the National Center for Accessible Media. It's a challenging memory activity that asks students to safely lead D.W. through a dark room without stepping on a toy and waking baby Kate. To accomplish this, students must listen carefully to verbal descriptions that reveal the exact placement of each toy. Make sure that students select the "audio" option before beginning the activity. Headphones required.

tag(s): listening (91)

In the Classroom

This site is also useful for students without visual impairments who could benefit from an activity that strengthens memory skills, concentration, and attention to detail.

Make sure your pop-up blocker is set to allow them to open.
