This site from the University of California at Santa Barbara lets students explore selected ecology topics in several ways. There are sub-sites dealing with ecology principles, whales, and several other marine species. There's also a very nice section on Data, showing why data collection is important for scientists and illustrating different ways to present data visually. Both sections might be useful in introducing scientific method and experimental procedure.

tag(s): ecology (133), pollution (65), recycling (59)

In the Classroom

This site is a great science find for both teachers and students! Teachers, there is an entire section of free lesson plans and activities that can be easily recreated in your classroom. For students, use this site as learning center or station. Allow students to use the site in cooperative learning groups, for any science unit on biomes, ecology, mammals, or data collection. This site would be a great supplement to book materials.

tag(s): disasters (43), earth (223), earthquakes (51)

In the Classroom

Use this site as an anticipatory set or "activator" to introduce a unit or lesson on geology and/or natural disasters on a projector or interactive whiteboard. When an earthquake is in the news, use this site as the starting point for individual or group projects in response to their curiosity about the news event. An option would be to divide students into cooperative learning groups to explore the site. Have them take online notes using Webnote, reviewed here; tell students to be sure to save the URL to share their notes and questions with you and their peers. Use the information they find as a jumping off place for doing further research on areas that interest them. To show what they have learned from this site and their research, challenge students to create an online graphic to share using Visme, reviewed here. Have them create presentations on different parts of the information found in the site and its activities.
