The CDC's home page for information on "bird flu" (avian influenza) offers a variety of content written at an adult level, including basic fact sheets, current outbreak updates, etc. Used selectively, this information offers an authoritative look at the evolution of this new disease and the international response to its spread.

tag(s): diseases (71)

In the Classroom

Use this site as an introduction to the avian flu during the seemingly always present flu-season. Have students explore the site in cooperative learning group with the intentions of finding three things that they can do to prevent themselves from getting the flu, or what the government is doing to prevent a spread. Have students create a short presentation with the information, making online posters that summarizes their findings. Use an online poster creator, such as Padlet (reviewed here). This would be great in a Health class, or in a government class studying government responses during crises or the impact of globalization.

How loud is too loud? With this interactive tool, students can select a decibel level within the threshold of normal human hearing, listen to the corresponding sound (a mosquito, a diesel truck, a rock concert), and read about the effects of prolonged exposure. This is a great tool for helping kids understand the relationship between sounds and decibels.

Consider taking your classes to the computer lab so that each student may explore this resource independently.

Introduce your students to the microbial worlds of bacteria, fungi, and viruses with this site that provides entertaining background information, ideas for classroom experiments, and a collection of "Microbes in the News" articles. Find out when hands should be washed and what happens when they are not! Interested students can even explore a "Careers" link that offers interviews with experts in the field, advice on finding a mentor, and tips on how to become a microbiologist. Available in English and Spanish.

In the Classroom

Use the videos on this site as a supplement to a lecture on microbes. One video that would be great, "E. Coli Animation," shows the growth and reproduction of e.coli in a quick YouTube clip. Not all school internet systems allow for access to YouTube, so make sure to check your school's policies before use. If it does work, some of these videos do a great job of detailing specific microbes and their life-cycles. Definitely a lot more interesting and fun for students to watch than reading the same information out of a textbook!

Students are asked to guess how long it will take to burn off those extra calories given every-day exercise. A BMI calculator and menu planner are also provided on the site. Created by the National Institutes of Health.
