This site from the US Geologic survey provides highly detailed current information on volcanic activity throughout the world. While some of the information is suitable for students or non-professionals, there is also a good deal of highly technical content. A good site for those with a real interest in observing how scientists predict and record volcanic activity.

tag(s): volcanoes (66)

In the Classroom

As you plan for a volcanoes unit, be sure to check out the Educator's page on this site for mmaterials. Include the full site as a research link from your teacher web page, but students might also like to use some of the online versions of print pubications availabel in the Educator Resource area. These include pictures of volcanoes.

This is a superb resource for students interested in studying the migratory patterns of birds. It presents several decades worth of data on migration and sightings of dozens of different species in North American. While the navigation is sometimes tricky, the site contains a wealth of possibilities for studying the relationships between ecosystems, climate, and other factors on the behavior of birds.

The University of California at Berkeley offers this unusually complete catalog of thousands of amphibian species from around the world. Users can perform keyword searches, then select from the results to see descriptions, photos, endangered species warnings, habitat information, and other facts about each species selected. It's a powerful research tool that makes comparisons among species especially easy.

tag(s): amphibians (21)

In the Classroom

Share this site on an interactive whiteboard or projector during a unit on the classification of animal kingdoms. The site provides a good example of the classifications, and can be easily searched for specific species if students are doing a research project. Forewarning: the classifications are all the Latin names of the reptiles, so it is best to know the creature you're searching for beforehand. Allow students to explore the site on their own, and post on the teacher web page if there are any research projects to allow students to access it both in and out of the classroom.
