Eastman Kodak's office tower is the site for this web cam focused on a nest of peregrine falcons. Viewers can check the state of the nest from four different angles, and the site offers a chronology of this year's nesting. The quality of the enlarged images is surprisingly good. This one is worth several visits.

tag(s): birds (52)

Scroll to the bottom of the home page to find links that work for News, Features, Birds, Conservation and more. Visit the "Bird Conservation" link containing several online projects and "Ask an Audubon Expert" where students can email questions to a scientist. Both are great options for those new to Internet collaboration.

tag(s): birds (52), conservation (123)

In the Classroom

There is a lot to explore here. You could start with the home page and the many articles listed there. Have small groups divide up the articles to read and investigate. Then have students with the same article meet together to become the expert on that topic (in cooperative learning, this is known as Jigsaw). Have each student in the Jigsaw group create an Awesome ScreenShot, reviewed here, where they can make digital notes with lines, text, or shapes. Once they form back into their original small group they can report what they learned to the other group members.

Here's a site which offers answers to imponderables such as, "Why is the ocean blue?" The site offers numerous articles of interest. You can join (for a fee), but the articles are available for free. The site is published by the British periodical New Science.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): DAT device agnostic tool (175)

In the Classroom

Share the site on an interactive whiteboard or projector, and use it as a springboard for an ethics discussion during science class. Though there are a wide array of articles, some capture and illustrate arguments over the debate of stem cell research, Pluto's classification, and climate change. At the end of a unit, open one of these articles and use the real-world information provided to spark a classroom debate. Students can use the knowledge they have gained, in addition to seeing its practical application. This is a very useful site for science enrichment!
