This is an engaging, "real science" site with explanations and narrative designed to keep students involved. There are explanations of more than a dozen concepts, each in sufficient detail that the site can serve as both an independent study and an enrichment resource.

tag(s): enrichment (13)

In the Classroom

Teachers may also find the site a good resource for strategies on conveying abstract concepts.

View very well done simulations (Java Applets) of Physics concepts. Some may be a little slow to load into your computer, but they are worth the wait to illustrate concepts which change and move on the screen. Along with the simulations are buttons to click to "put it in context," i.e. explain how the concept relates to something in everyday life. Use this as a student resource or on a projector for the entire class.

Hands on Physics is an experience-based physics course developed by the Concord Consortium. Its goal is to provide a set of experiments which present complex challenges using materials and equipment which are easily and inexpensively available. Several lesson plans are also available.

tag(s): motion (59)

In the Classroom

Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Then have students explore this site independently or in small groups. This site covers almost everything in basic physics, and would be an excellent site for students to use while reviewing for a quiz or test. Design a worksheet for students to fill out that accompanies the site, or use the site as a learning center or station.

The American Physical Society presents this elegant, decade-by-decade review of innovations in physics during the twentieth century. There are descriptions of major events, several time lines, and lots of illustrations to keep students' attention. Predictably, there is lots of information on the evolution of the atomic bomb and progress in astrophysics.

Created by the High Energy Astrophysics Science Archive Research Center which is located within the Laboratory for High Energy Astrophysics (LHEA) at NASA/GSFC. This is an incredible site. It gives easy to read tables of previously taught background necessary for the students to successfully complete the experiments, necessary materials (for both teacher and students), and copy ready data tables.

Learn about the life and careers of many famous scientists by viewing intriguing videos. Find out about scientists such as Richard Feynman, Rosalind Franklin, and Gregor Mendel through interviews with scientists in their field today. Don't let the cartoon figures fool you: these videos are not "juvenile." The scientists included may not be household names to everyone, but the videos make their work accessible and interesting. At the time of this review, there were over a dozen scientists included, and more were being added regularly. Note that the actual videos are hosted on YouTube so may not be accessible in some schools. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): biographies (87), darwin (11), scientists (69)

In the Classroom

Use as a resource for finding more information about a variety of different scientists told from a scientist's perspective. Share the videos on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Consider having students create their own report about the importance of research and not just the biographical information about a scientist. Encourage students to make their own videos (or other presentation tool) about scientists to place on a wiki, site, or blog. Have students use one of the many TeachersFirst Edge multimedia tools reviewed here.

This phenomenal website is all about levers. The website provides information about levers and how we use them everyday. It also has an awesome interactive challenge that requires Shockwave. The interactive is a challenge to use a lever to raise one end of an obelisk three feet off the ground. There is a teacher's guide that provides a detailed lesson plan. Check it out!

tag(s): newton (25)

In the Classroom

Use this site with your interactive whiteboard or projector to help your students gain a better understanding of levers and their use in everyday life. After reading about common levers we use everyday, ask them if they can think of others.

Find online video lessons and free resources on this MIT site. BLOSSOMS features great STEM videos as well as links to other STEM resources on the site. Find great resources that focus on the use of science and math knowledge to bring these topics to life. View a variety of topics such as Using Geometry to Design Simple Machines, Galaxies and Dark Matter, and Classifying Animals by Appearance Versus DNA Sequence. On each video page, click the link to view the video, read a summary of the information, and even download the transcript, teachers guide, and images that are used for the video. Downloads are available in Word or Adobe Reader format. Interested in the topic? Use the links at the bottom to view other sites and resources.

tag(s): engineering (125), STEM (134)

In the Classroom

Use as some great starters to a unit where students can question what needs to be understood to solve the problem. Brainstorm questions, research information, or use these as starters for daily lessons. Provide time for students to view videos and report their understandings via a blog or report. Create student reviews of videos to be placed on a blog and allow for commenting on the videos and the reviews themselves.

Looking for a great resource site that offers visualizations of complex cellular activities? Use DNA Tube as your visual scientific resource. This non-profit scientific site provides video based studies, lectures, and seminars that are for more advanced and motivated students. Use the video-based explanations of a large variety of biological concepts to remove barriers of understanding from students. Click "watch" to see thumbnails of videos. Use the search bar at the top to find relevant videos. Use the Category tab to search among various categories such as lectures, experiments, ecology, genetics, and many others. Sign up with the site to be able to download videos after entering login information. Along the bottom of each video page, find thumbnails of related videos as well as related topics. Topics include various areas of science and math. This site does allow you to upload your own videos. Uploading videos required registration.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): cells (102), dna (69)

In the Classroom

Find great videos to use as an introduction to a unit or to help clarify how a certain process occurs using these visualizations. Use videos on an interactive whiteboard or with a projector. Pause through the video to ask questions about what is happening in the process, explain processes, or have students be able to use appropriate vocabulary to explain. This site is excellent for enrichment. Include it on your class web page for students to access both in and out of class. Challenge students to create their own simple videos to help explain a science concept. Share the videos using using a tool such as SchoolTube reviewed here.
