This visually beautiful compendium of artist web sites allows you to find artist by continent and medium to showcase sample techniques to your students or help them get inspiration for their own artwork and photography. Artists who have sites "list" themselves with Wotartist. A teacher can select a continent/region and can roll the mouse over types or styles of artwork: photography, sculpture, impressionism, etc, A colorful, small preview of a sample of the artist's work appears next to the words. Click to see more. Incidentally, the site offers e-cards, as well.

tag(s): drawing (77), impressionism (5), painting (67), photography (160), sculpture (22), surrealism (4)

In the Classroom

Share artworks and techniques on a projector as you introduce a project or make this site available on the desktop in your studio for students to get inspiration. Note: since there is no "filtering" on the artwork content, you might want to allow students to use this site ONLY under supervision. If you preview artists in advance, you can simply "avoid" those whose images might cause concern among parents or administrators. As you know, art can be tricky, so be wise as a teacher! When a student does a particularly GOOD art project, why not send his/her parents a positive e-card from this site? You could make a real impression! Note: ALL images on the site are copyrighted, so make sure your students know that they should not be copying them unless for a specific class project and with proper citation.

This lesson site for the novel Frankenstein offers a variety of activities, including student web searches and different ways to discuss this story. Monster stories are popular with teenagers, and Shelley's Frankenstein is not what they expect it to be. However, this website provides motivation for students to delve into and discuss the meaning of true "monsters."

tag(s): halloween (39)

In the Classroom

This site includes standards, procedures, and extensions for studying Frankenstein as well as an intersting way to approach a trial for student discussion. Certainly worth a look for anyone who teaches this novel. The link to the "Penetrating the Secrets of Nature" site would be a great one to share on a projector or interactive whiteboard as an anticipatory set or activator as you start this novel unit.

The BBC created this wonderful website especially for students ages 13 to 19 years old. Students can show share their artwork, get advice from the experts, or chat with famous artists. Students will also learn how various artists got their start and what the artists love about their jobs. There are a few interactive games and educational activities, as well. The interactive activities require Flash, get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.. Since this website was created by the BBC, you may notice some spelling differences.

tag(s): artists (75), painting (67)

In the Classroom

This is an excellent website for middle and high school art classes or clubs! Help your students to display their own artwork and learn about many artists of the past and present. Be sure to get parent permission and discuss safety concerns before uploading student artwork (avoid identifiable information) The interactive fun would be perfect on a projection screen. If your students are uncomfortable with critiques, this tool may be the lure to make them more willing to take the risks.

This website is ready for your aspiring artists. There are interactive games and art activities, chat areas to get art advice, unique project ideas, and even an area to submit your artwork to the gallery. If you want to spark some creativity, take your students on a visit to the Onion Street Art Room. Since this website was created by the BBC, you may notice some spelling differences. You will also read the term "GCSE," the British test that secondary students take to demonstrate general curriculum knowledge. The interactive activities require Flash, get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): artists (75), photography (160)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource to plan art activities or share it with your students so they can find fresh art ideas. Encourage budding artists by posting their artwork, as well (with permission). Use the galleries to show your students how to give a positive critique -- even leave some comments for other artists. Because the site includes discussion boards and commenting, you will need to have rules about netiquette/safety and to obtain parent permission if students are using the site at school. If you simply share portions on a projector or interactive whiteboard, you will not need to worry about safety issues in class.

The BBC created this wonderful website that shows students how to create 3 different themed murals (the countryside, an underwater scene, and a forest). The original contest and website is targeted at 9 - 11 year old students in Ireland, but many of the activities could easily be used with younger or older students. The mural instructions include a series of activities, worksheets, video clips, and more. You may prefer to cherry -pick the best activities to use in your class, or take advantage of the entire lesson. The interactive activities and videos require Flash, get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.. Since this website was created by the BBC, you may notice some spelling differences.

tag(s): water (130)

In the Classroom

Use the mural as a way to study the natural environment in your area: the plants , animals, and seasons. Don't forget to talk about the animal habitats you see as your observe and create. Get your interactive whiteboard or projector ready to demonstrate to your students how a mural is created step-by-step. Keep this resource available on your single classroom computer or large screen as a reference while students create their own murals, so they have a live and large model to follow. The website provides general standards, find them by clicking on the "Curriculum Relevance" link.

Have a high speed Internet connection? (Most schools do)The you MUST visit these 3D virtual tours of beautiful sites all over the world with your students. Read the Welcome message on the home page for directions and details, then explore the current features and several years of archives for 3D virtual tours from major world capitals to true "experiences" such as Times Square and white water rafting. Even the tour of a Banyan tree will amaze you. Bring the world into your classroom for geography, landforms, world cultures, foreign language study, or literary settings. Be in the midst of festivals or atop the Sydney Bridge. The site requires Quicktime. The Welcome section can help you troubleshoot. Or you can get Quicktime from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.. Just be sure to share in full screen (high band) view , if you can! Click the FULL SCREEN QTVR FEATURE > ARCHIVE to find more choices. There is also a link to Arounder, a collection of European Capitals in 3D tours.

tag(s): images (269), landforms (45)

In the Classroom

Use a projector--or better yet, an interactive whiteboard--to take students atop the Eiffel Tower, to the high Sierras, or aboard a Mars explorer. Allow student to navigate on the whiteboard. Nte that Shift and Ctrl keys alow you to zoom, as well. Be sure to click at the top of the 3D view to Read More about the image. These tours will make landforms real, culture come alive, and science a visual art form. As you introduce terms and place, use images! You could even use a tour as a writing prompt for poetry or descriptive writing. Include the link on your teacher web page for students to "tour the world" outside of class or feature one location a week to broaden class horizons on a classroom desktop.

What a GREAT idea! Thank you. I found one with mountain biking and vistas. I'll put it up early in the period and come back to it in the end and have them write their exit cards about it. Then I will revisit it in a week or two when we start talking about metaphorical language. Shirley, CA, Grades: 6 - 12
I plan to use this as a way to start the school year with my sixth grade G/T kids. I will display a panorama on an interactive whiteboard-- one of mountains with peaks and valleys. I will ask, "Why would I show you this and say that this is our classroom this year?" The students will write down an idea on a slip of paper, guessing why I might use this as an introduction to my class. They will most likely introduce all of the classroom conduct and learning environment issues that I want to touch upon that first day: peaks and valleys during the year, some rugged terrain, studying mountains and geography, some amazing views (everyone's opinions), and more. It will also get them thinking in analogies and allow me to see how quickly some of them do this and how literal others are. Thinking, PA, Grades: 5 - 10

This lesson focuses on the content and style of development in Twain's The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and explores the nature of Tom Sawyer as a youthful "American Adam." Offered in seven 45-minute lesson plans, this site has great activities, particularly for 8th and 9th graders. It incorporates Twain's classic with a humanities angle that gives students a broader view of what education and life were like in the mid-19th century in America.

In the Classroom

Use portions of these lessons; then allow students to choose among the various project options, perhaps using multiple intelligence approach to facilitate their choices.

This lesson plan enables students to identify characteristics that are common to heroes, recognize heroes from many diverse cultures, and discuss how heroes can be any type of person who has accomplished an inspiring action. It offers this in nine 45-minute class lessons. The instructional objectives make it easy to pick and choose which lessons you want to do in the order in which you want to do them. It offers a great, classic base of Aristotelian hero qualities while also enabling you to bring the idea of hero forward into modern times.

tag(s): literature (275)

In the Classroom

The links on the site itself offer ways to let students investigate on the web themselves at safe sites. Share the links as part of a web treasure hunt asking students to collect characteristics of heroes on their own and put them in a collaborative graphic organizer. What a great start to a heroes unit---one that you can revisit and add to throughout the unit. At the end of the unit, let them use the class organizer as the basis for their own "design a hero" challenge instead of a test.

Amazing! This site uses a highly-accurate Flash representation of the complete muscular and skeletal structure of the human face and head in an interactive tool. The parts are all labeled (probably enough for a med student), but then the user can make them move to understand how they work. You will find yourself looking far more closely at any facial expression after you play with this for a few minutes. The tool is available in both Spanish and English. Don't miss the sliders that make the skull or muscles show more beneath the "skin." You MUST have Flash to see this site. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): drawing (77), speech (92)

In the Classroom

Teach figure drawing (head and face) by exploring this tool on laptops or an interactive whiteboard. If you teach anatomy or even athletic training/physiology, the detail of the anatomical illustration is amazing. Creative writers can use the emotion descriptors at the right to learn how to SHOW characters' emotions in their writing by explaining what their faces do instead of TELLING readers how the characters feel. Spanish teachers and ESL teachers may want to use the facial expressions to teach words that describe emotions. Other teachers-- even those who teach emotional or autistic support-- could use the facial expression of emotions to help students who have poor social skills recognize what someone else is feeling or build vocabulary of "feeling words." Speech clinicians interested in showing students how to form sounds (for articulation) will love this site, as will their students!

Other subjects of interest for kids and parents include lunch box ideas, a music/song feature, party ideas, games,and recipes. There are advertisements (designated as "Ads by Google"), so you will want to navigate the site together to prevent getting stuck in commercialism! Look for the word "Activity" for links to the actual ideas.

This lesson plan examines the occurrence of Fibonacci numbers popularized by the book and movie The Da Vinci Code. By examining relationships between numbers of petals and other plant parts in fruits, vegetables, trees, and flowers, students begin to take note of the frequency of occurrence of the famed numbers. Students learn plant identification, data recording, research methods, and drawing conclusions based on findings in this fascinating, multi-disciplinary approach.

Use your digital camera and real plants to collect and observe and a spreadsheet to track and calculate. Even better, use an online collaborative spreadsheet such as InstaCalc for students to enter data from home and school. You may get them hooked on noticing something about nature when they are outside.

This multi-level lesson plan for ESL students offers opportunities for vocabulary development, reading, writing, and cultural sharing by responding to stories and books about kites. Primary grade tecahers could also use it in a unit on weather or as an interdisciplinary science/language arts activity. Because of its high interest level, it motivates students to participate in understanding new words and in expressing their ideas about the books they read and the techniques and history of kite flying in their countries. Students also read and talk about kite safety rules and examine websites about kites. Writing opportunities include writing rules,original stories, cultural histories haiku, and diamante poems. Students also get to design, make, decorate and fly their own kites.

tag(s): poetry (228), vocabulary (324)

In the Classroom

Plan a kite day in the fall or spring and use all or part of these plans to learn new words, build kites, and even fly them before you write about them. This would be a terrific activity to include parents at school year's end.

In the Classroom

Introduce the site to your students on a projector os interactive whiteboard. Then have them work individually or in groups to write some of their own alternatives. Use the whiteboard to write new ideas! You could even start your own class wiki to include cliches students encounter in everyday conversation and in readings along with their suggestions for alternatives. Give extra credit for new additions students make on their own! Keep the link to Cliche a Day on your teacher web page as a reference for student writing assignments throughout the year.
