Find a growing database of high quality images used by science researchers. Photographs also include those taken under the microscope. You can use these images as long as you include the copyright information from the copyright link. These are beautiful images for use in science!

tag(s): cells (102), images (265), microorganisms (14), photography (160)

In the Classroom

Use these images of organisms and nature to illustrate concepts or ask visual questions. Use in student projects, on wikis or blogs, or anywhere a great picture is needed. Use to generate essays about the different types of organisms or have students make a "wanted" poster that discusses the habitat and niche of the various organisms. Use pictures when discussing characteristics of life or the classification of various organisms. Create simple drag and drop sorting activities for interactive whiteboard using these images to assess class understanding of different characteristics or classifications. Use this activity with one of the student centered activity formats from our Hands Off, Vanna ideas for student centered use of your interactive whiteboard.

Write, read, and share digital books with Widbook. Create a digital book that contains text, images, and videos. You can rearrange content on pages and upload images, etc. Invite others to make contributions to your books. Create a profile on the site to begin your book or collaborate with others (or you can skip this step). Books you create become a part of your profile. If you allow it, other Widbook users can add content and or comments to your books. You can change setting to allow comments and additions on a book or not. Likewise, you can search for others' books and contribute to their books. The only way to share your books is with others logged into Widbook or other social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest).

tag(s): creative writing (166), descriptive writing (41), expository writing (44), paragraph writing (17), persuasive writing (55), process writing (42), writing (358)

In the Classroom

Create books on any subject for your students to review or learn. Set up a whole class account or use individual accounts with those 13 and older if school policy allows it. Challenge students to create a book as a multi-media presentation instead of a typical book report. This would be great to use for a student/star of the week presentation. Each week add a student's information. Do this together as a class on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Create a link (and log in) on classroom computers for students to view the book when they wish. Use this tool for groups to collaborate on science concept tales, poetry books, general writing, math problem solve-its, and more. ANY grade can use this tool with a whole class account, depending on the amount of direction by the teacher. Have students create a book as an end of the year culminatng/review project.

Answer the questions on each of the tabs to determine the amount of carbon dioxide you are responsible for emitting by the products you choose and your lifestyle. You are given the options to measure/calculate using money spent or gallons (or other form of measurement). This calculators is quite detailed.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): carbon dioxide (17), carbon footprint (11), climate change (64)

In the Classroom

Have each student use the calculator to determine their total. Compare students in the class and the types of activities that cause a greater amount. Ask questions as to why some activities raise the carbon footprint more than others. Research the reasons for a better understanding of what causes a carbon footprint. Discuss ways that families could take action to reduce their carbon footprint. Most students are unfamiliar with carbon offsets. Discuss what these are and whether they are important or needed. Create a campaign or contest to reduce the carbon footprint of your community and make a change for the future. Have students create a word cloud of the important terms they learn from this site (or things that will increase your footprint) using a tool such as Wordle (reviewed here), Tagxedo (reviewed here), or WordItOut (reviewed here). Create infographics using the class footprint stats and a simple infographic tool such as Easel.ly (reviewed here).

Create interactive, text-based games with this simple tool. Perhaps you remember a text-based game called "Adventure" from back in the early days of computers. Be sure to watch the tutorial on the home page that also teaches you how to navigate the stories themselves. By clicking on the "Learn More" when you're signed out, or the "About Us" when you're signed in, you can view the "cheat sheet" that will certainly make your first creative attempt at Playfic more enjoyable. Experiment with Playfic games created by others and time yourself. if you get stuck, you can look at the source code. Create your own Playfic for any topic that interests you, whether it's fiction or not. Note that there is no moderation on games created by others, so preview before sharing with young people.

tag(s): creative writing (166), creativity (109), digital storytelling (142), gamification (65), mysteries (25), puzzles (208)

In the Classroom

"Gamification" of learning is a hot topic in 21st century learning. Use this simple tool to make it happen. Use for any digital storytelling: fact or fiction. In social studies, have students create an interactive game based on life during the Depression or any historic era. Have them create a "Where in the world is ..." for geography. World language students could make a simple game (in the language they are studying) about daily life. Gifted students will love creating games on their favorite topics, so make this a research-and-create-a-game approach for independent projects. Science students could make a game about what might happen in certain weather or life as a fossil. Have your language arts students create mystery or survival stories or even a different ending to a story you've read together. Warning: all stories are PUBLIC and your students will be able to view other's stories. You'll either want to have a class account or monitor this closely.

Ever use a number or statistic in a presentation and see the eyes of audience gloss over in misunderstanding or cluelessness? Perhaps you have trouble making number sense out of large figures. Try NumberQuotes! Simplistic and to the point, this tool allows you to enter a number into the search bar, and it will generate a list of quotes related to your number. Follow directions about the number entry format (words or numerals). Find fast, easy comparisons at your fingertips without tedious hours of detailed research.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): number sense (97), statistics (122)

In the Classroom

This tool is great when discussing numbers that are difficult for students to assimilate, such as exponents or population growth. In elementary grades, use it for 100th day celebrations! Help students develop number sense about large figures in economics, social studies, or science. Share this site with students on your interactive whiteboard (or projector) and type in the number such as the population of a country. It will then generate comparisons that are more student friendly. Keep this reference handy as a link on your class web page to help students comprehend numbers they encounter in informational texts or even in math class.

Wix makes creating your own website EASY! Wix has over 100 visually rich templates for you to choose. Or you may choose a blank template and upload your own material. The easy, "drag and drop" elements allow even the novice technology user to create their own website. Choose to have your website in Flash or HTML. Wix does all the work for either of these. Choose from 100s of images, fonts, menus, music files, buttons, and widgets, or upload your own. There are video tutorials that will take you from beginner to website designer in 8 steps!
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): blogs (88), game based learning (103), gamification (65), portfolios (28), social networking (112)

In the Classroom

Your students, 13 and over, may register by email if you want them to create a page to present a project, or for club web pages. Use a whole class account for students under 13. This program would be nice for developing student portfolios, small group presentations, even journals about career research. Create a Wix website page to publish biographical information about any historical figure in any subject area. Use Wix to create pages about characters in a novel. Create pages about scientists and their contributions including reactions of others to their discovery or invention. Research why these inventions were particularly important and the scientific knowledge that changed as a result. Create a page about artists, musicians, politicians, etc. using the same guidelines as above with scientists. Challenge students to step into the person's character to create an informative understanding about the person and their contribution. In upper elementary grades, have all students generate a starter page offline about a famous person (or people) you are studying. Then vote on one to publish as a class using this online tool. Have teens begin a "Me" portfolio in middle grades, one that they can continue to develop as they approach college and/or career. Encourage them to showcase links to online projects, favorite images they have taken or created, artwork, music, writing samples, and personal interests. This is the ideal way to build a positive digital footprint that students can actually use well into the future. If you teach gifted students, encourage them to add suitable projects from your class to their portfolio site, especially projects that involve connections with the "real world."

Anatronica is a 3D anatomy tool. Learn about the skeletal system, muscular system, respiratory system, nervous system, and several other systems of the human body. Mobile apps are available and the site is also viewable through PC or Mac. Click on "Free" to access the tool online. The site does require the Unity3D plugin, available for free at the site. Once loaded, navigation tools to move through the systems and views are self-explanatory. Data on anatomy objects are provided, and there is also a quiz function. It is worth the effort to install the 3D plugin to be able to use this site!
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): body systems (57), human body (120)

In the Classroom

Use this tool in health or biology class hen discussing anatomy and physiology of humans or any other creature being dissected as a comparison. Even younger students can grasp the systems of the human body when you share this on a projector or whiteboard and show the same part of the body ( head, arm, etc) through the lens of different body systems. To avoid the hassle of downloading the plug-in on all class computers, share the site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Have student groups give "travel tours" of their assigned body system to the class. Provide this link for students to use/explore at home. If your school computers are locked down, preventing you from loading plug-ins, this one is worth requesting and pestering your tech department.

This site provides "Twitter analytics for the masses." Enter a hashtag to find the conversations. This site finds the conversations, analyzes them, then provides the data with related buzzwords and information in a visually appealing way. This site updates information every 10 minutes. Please preview/pretest a few minutes before you share with students or children. Our editors noticed that some keywords pull up vulgar language. (We searched "school.")
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): twitter (50)

In the Classroom

Use current trending topics (such as elections or other current events from around the world). Revisit the hashtag or trending topic periodically to see the changes in the topic, including the buzzwords that change over time. Look at news reports or causes for the change in the trend. Twitter trends could be useful in any subject area but especially useful for current events, civics, health, and economics. New to Twitter and hashtags? Find information to help you here.

Turn any web page into a PDF document instantly with this incredibly easy tool! Simply type or copy and paste the url into the box and click the "P" button. Instantly the page converts to a PDF document and downloads to your computer for immediate use. Drag the site's bookmarklet onto your browser's toolbar for easy use at any time with any page.

In the Classroom

Use this site to print any web page without all of the headings and other extras that generally appear. Make print outs for students to practice highlighting and looking for main ideas in informational texts (especially if you do not have an interactive whiteboard to do this). Upload PDF's to your website for student use of single pages of websites instead of having students go through unneeded pages. Be sure to show students that you must make a note of the DATE when you made the pdf, since you should always include the "date accessed" in a project bibliography entry for a web site. Talk about "fair use" in making web page copies for temporary use as part of research or class activities vs copying web pages to hang them up as locker decorations! This may be a good site to share with parents via your website. (Help them save paper and print only what they need, not an entire website.)
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.
