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

In the Classroom

Introduce the site on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Then have students explore independently or in small groups. Use at centers or offer as a resource for projects on conservation. Have student groups decide what area they will explore. Have students take notes on the material and write down questions they still have and topics that confuse them. They can do this with pen and paper or online. If you want the assignment online, explain to students they need to open a new tab in their browser window and take notes with a tool such as Webnote, reviewed here; tell students to be sure to save the URL to share their notes and questions with you and their peers. Challenge groups to create informational videos sharing their research using a tool like My Simpleshow, reviewed here. Then share them on a site such as TeacherTube, reviewed here.

tag(s): acid rain (5), ecology (133), pollution (65)

Use this site as a resource during a lesson or unit on acid rain. Have cooperative learning groups explore the site, with the intentions of summarizing the information in a multimedia presentation. Have cooperative learning groups create online books using a tool such as Bookemon, reviewed here. Have groups tell the "acid" rain, explaining where and how it happens most. Great for a pre-discussion activity about the efforts to stop acid rain.

While some information is designed for working professionals, other elements are suitable for use by interested students.

This site would be an excellent resource for any unit conservationism, ecosystems, and endangered species. Have students use this site as a resource for research projects about specific animals. The site provides images, information and statistics what would be extremely helpful! Save this site on your class web page to allow students to access it both in and out of the classroom.

The University of Florida has compiled a listing of insects holding the record for the biggest, fastest, smallest, etc., etc. A good collection of insect trivia, as well as a potential starting point for a more serious exploration of insects and the way they live.

tag(s): insects (71)

In the Classroom

While some of the world records might make students a little queasy, (see the worlds biggest bug) this site would be an excellent way to get students interested in the study of insects. Share the site on an interactive whiteboard or projector, and allow students to explore it in groups. What would be interesting is to see how many record holders were local insects. Have students create a digital record book, including images on a site such as Bookemon, reviewed here.
