Your students can dig dinosaur bones right from their computers. This site has two interactive three-dimensional tours: 1) a tour of a museum room featuring dinosaur artifacts where you can scroll your mouse over the contents to learn more; and 2) from the ground to the museum, you can dig bones out west and then unwrap them for display at the Smithsonian. Of course, with a click of the mouse, your students have a vast amount of information for research or fun, including an interactive dinosaur tree of life. Audio and Flash are necessary. They can be obtained from here: TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): dinosaurs (57)

In the Classroom

Use an interactive whiteboard or projector to effectively show and discuss the dinosaur dig and museum to your class. This Smithsonian website also features a fossil lab slide show if your students crave to learn about this branch of science. Have your students research different types of lesser known dinosaurs and create interactive presentations to share with the class. Rather than a presentation about the research, have students write a fictitious blog post from their researched dinosaur to a large animal of today (such as the elephant). What characteristics do they share? What makes them different?

Teachers of gifted students-- even younger ones-- will want to steer their dinosaur-obsessed students to this site for independent projects.

Come to this site and build a dinosaur! Students can choose the type of body, tail, head, and legs. As they click on the choices, information is provided about the six dinosaurs included in this activity: Stegosaurus, Apatosaurus, Iguanodon, Triceratops, Anklosaurus, and Corythosaurus. The site teaches how the dinosaurs protect themselves, what they eat, and more. Students can create a "real" dinosaur, or their own creation. For example, give the dinosaur the head of the Iguanodon, the body of the Stegosaurus, the tail of the Anklosaurus, and the legs of the Triceratops. This site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): adaptations (17), dinosaurs (57), paleontology (41)

In the Classroom

Use this site during your dinosaur unit to teach about six well-known dinosaurs and the adaptations their bodies had to fit their environments and eating habits. Create the "real" dinosaurs on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Take time and have students read the facts presented about each body part of the dinosaur. Have students work on individual computers to create their own dinosaur (using parts from various dinosaurs). Have students print their dinosaurs, name their new type of dinosaur, and write a story about it (describing what the dinosaur eats, how it protects itself, and other factual information).

This site was created for second grade students. It offers links to activities in math, science, social studies, language arts, creative arts, and a reference library. Some of the subject areas only offer one or two activities, while others offer several topics. The topics vary greatly and include addition, subtraction, multiplication, dinosaurs, Earth, the solar system, continents, oceans, compound words, contractions, and more! Much of the site consists of interactive quiz style questions (rather than background information). But this site does have a little bit of everything.

Although some of the activities are not highly interactive, they are well done and could be very useful in the classroom. Some of the pages do have advertisements, but they are not distractive. This site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): addition (251), continents (50), dinosaurs (57), oceans (148), subtraction (208)

In the Classroom

Use the activities at this site as an anticipatory activity for a new topic, or review prior to the big quiz. The site's activities would work well on an interactive whiteboard or projector. List this site in your class newsletter and on your class website for students to use for additional practice at home.

This lesson on simple addition is part of a collection of lesson plans featuring multi-sensory approaches to help all learners, including special needs students who benefit from multiple experiences with concepts. The plans focuses on consistency, repetitiveness, tactile and visual reinforcement--great for children with special needs. The original lesson plans were written by award-winning teacher Nora Coyle of Colorado, a KOAA-TV "Teachers First" Award winner. The staff of TeachersFirst has incorporated technology options, tips, and templates appropriate for younger students into the lesson plan to add yet another way for your students to experience and interact with new concepts.

Many of these ideas and templates can be adapted for use with almost any subject or concepts, to differentiate for different learning styles. The lesson includes national standards.

tag(s): addition (251)

In the Classroom

Experienced and new teachers alike will find this example helpful in designing multi-sensory, technology-infused lessons.

Students are always fascinated and intrigued about animals that are extinct. Follow the actual work of paleontologists in this interactive site. Choose a fossil dig site to start from "Giant fish's last meal," "Deadly dinosaur duel," or "Dinosaur nest." Read introductions and background information about paleontology. Use the basic tools of paleontology to uncover fossil remains. Move the tools (hammer, pick, and brush) to areas you wish to use them. After clearing enough of the structures, the fossil will automatically be revealed. Move on to the view the steps for the preparation of the shipment of the fossil and the reporting of the findings .

Follow the links along the top to resources and lesson plans for all levels in pdf documents, pictures, movie trailers, and an interactive time line. This site requires Flash and Adobe Acrobat. Get both from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

Learn all about fossils and paleontology. For the online information and interactives, choose "Activities Online" from the left side navigation menu. Choose "Who moved the Body" to learn how dinosaur fossils are made and unearthed. Click on "What Am I" to learn how paleontologists determine the names of the bones and the dinosaur identified from a fossil. The "Fossil Field Guide" provides extensive information about many extinct animals, their ecology, characteristics, and where they used to live. The "Geologic Time line" on the right side allows you to explore the different geologic time periods and the organisms that would be found there. "Educational Resources" can be used to visit "Dinosaur Dig," to view frequently asked questions, play "Jurassic Jumble" for interactive puzzles (requires Java), view a slide show, or "Name that Reptile." The educational resources contain a large and varied amount of information that includes many other titles such as "The Science of Jurassic Park." ." Younger readers will need help with many of the text passages. Several printable resources are available and require Adobe PDF. This site requires Flash and Adobe Acrobat. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

In the Classroom

Students can use the information in the Fossil Field Guide to create dioramas, posters, or digital media by using Make Beliefs Comics to create a fictional story of the extinct animal. Students can also use this information to show adaptations of organisms or similarities and differences between them. The information can also be used to identify structures that are also present in today's animal kingdom. Create a class time line that stretches the room and plots the animals that were present during each time period.

A great source of primary documents covering many topics of interest to grade school children including the real stories some of the people killed on Sept. 11. Although this is usually a pay site ($9.95/yr), free membership is available for educators, schools, and libraries. Each feature article is divided into "Story Chapter Links" and highlighted vocabulary clicks to photographs, maps, artifacts, documents, audio-visual clips, and articles with more information about the word. Topics offered include history, culture, literature, disasters, and media. You can find passages on topics related to almost any student's interests and use the resources to teacher reading skills. In December, 2006, Awesome Stories announced free accounts for individuals, as well, but for a "limited time." If you would like your students to be abe to use it at home, consider setting up accounts for students, as well, while they are free.

tag(s): dinosaurs (57), disasters (39), literature (275), movies (64), space (205)

In the Classroom

This is a great jumping off point for beginning researchers. You will find a wonderful compilation of photographs and other realia about the topics. Teach comprehension skills by using the first four chapters and asking students to predict or write aht they think would come next. Bring up the stories on an interactive whiteboard to highlight important terms and access the links that help students build connections to content. Maybe let students select the next topic to help engage reluctant readers.

This well-organized site from U.C.

The site was created with support from the National Science Foundation.

Use this activity as a learning center or station during a unit on cladistics. Save this site as a favorite on classroom computers and have students complete the activity in pairs or cooperative learning groups. This would be a great activity during a Biology class. As an extension, students can summarize what they learned in an flow chart or graphic organizer. Have students use a site such as Befuddler, (reviewed here).

This should make these materials effective in almost any teaching environment. If you teach at the primary level, this one's well worth a visit.
