BBC has created an extensive, interactive website about animals. Check out this website for information, games and more. Examples of activities include "Pets", "Amazing Animals" and "Wild Games". If you study animals and classification, this site will provide endless examples of animals your students do not ordinarily see. The video clips bring the animals to life! Try the Amazing animals section for detailed information.

Many of the activities require FLASH.

tag(s): animals (276)

In the Classroom

Try these on an interactive whiteboard and introduce your students to some wild and amazing animals! This site is sure to be a class favorite. Younger readers will need help with the written details in Amazing Animals, but can still learn from the video clips (Require FLASH. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page).
 This resource requires Adobe Flash.

Animal Diversity Web is an on-line database of animal natural history, distribution, and classification organized as an on-line encyclopedia. Users can search the Animalia Kingdom by Phylum, Sub phylum, Class, Order and Family. Choose the corresponding icons to view facts, descriptions, pictures, specimens and hear the sounds of the various animals. This site contains a lot of information. Younger students may need some assistance/instruction maneuvering through the site initially.

tag(s): animals (276), biodiversity (38), diversity (36)

In the Classroom

Introduce the site on a projector or interactive whiteboard before asking students to investigate their own animal choices. Older students can do comparisons and contrasts to better understand the taxonomy and can also read about naming of species. See the teaching link for more ideas. Play the sounds on your computer speakers, especially if the animals are unfamiliar in your part of the world. Sounds require Quicktime. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

This site also has a very public message about its authorship (college students) which can prompt a good discussion about reliability and appropriateness of sources. Reinforce critical evaluation of sources and information literacy in your science class, too!

Animal Corner offers facts and statistics for a multitude of animals. It is easy to maneuver through the categories of animals such as pets, farm, insects, wild life, marine, Galapagos, and rain forest. The site is user-friendly and filled with interesting information.

Be aware: the site says that it is "currently under construction" but all information and links work, they are simply adding additional material. There are some unobtrusive advertisements at this website.

tag(s): animals (276), insects (69), reptiles (11)

In the Classroom

Perfect for a web quest or research tool for a project/report. Place on your classroom homepage or desktop to correlate with your weekly/daily theme. Lower elementary readers will need help with some of the text, but there are also pictures.

This site starts from a map of the US and Canada with certain areas shaded to indicate where certain trees grow. A list of trees follows; to get more information about each tree, click on its name. A photo of the tree in full leaf is available as well as closeups of the individual leaf and its fruit. A short narrative with each tree describes its geographic location, size, leaf and fruit characteristics, wood type and its characteristics, and the way the tree is most frequently used. The site is created by a paper company.

tag(s): trees (30)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a reference for your leaf collection and identification projects or as part of a discussion about sustainability and the paper industry. Include the link on your techer web page, but be sure to model how the site works on a projector before expecting younger students to use it on their own.

tag(s): dna (69), genetics (90)

In the Classroom

Assign students to explore a section and complete the genetic journey then use the computers to organize data and graph their D.N.A. findings. Use an interactive whiteboard or projector to share and compare findings.

This on-line textbook contains an amazing amount of information regarding biology and botany. The in-depth detail is a bit overwhelming but the "diamonds in rough" and bits of interesting information are worth it, as is the factual data contained within the website. The site also includes on-line curricula for biology and botany 101.

In the Classroom

This site would be very handy for a research project or upper-level web quest. Include it on your teacher web page as you assign independent projects for both in and out of class. The pages are text-intensive, so an weak readers will need and alernate source or reader-partner.

Take Control! The Cincinnati Zoo provides web cams that students can control from the comfort (and safety) of their own classroom. The web cams are stationed within the rhinoceros and gorilla areas. Students enter a queue and wait their turn until the controls open up. At that time, students can manipulate the camera(s) for several shots within the animal habitats. This is an interesting and interactive opportunity as opposed to the traditional stationary web cams. High speed internet is helpful.

In the Classroom

As you study animals or read a selection about them in your language arts class, set up this site as a center. Teacher about scientific observation by having students "observe" the animals' behavior at specific times of the day or for a certain period of time. How often does a gorilla scratch? Look up the weather in Cincinnati to determine whether it has an impact on the animals' behavior. You don''t have to be there to conduct an "experiment." Search TeachersFirst for other webcams if these are not the animals you want.

This webquest carefully examines the problem of possible wolf extinction, their re-introduction into the wild, the opposition of the ranchers in the area etc. By presenting small groups of students with a real issue, the quest will teach how to perform and evaluate research before developing a point of view on an issue. For the final project of the quest, users write an editorial stating their well-researched viewpoint. Students don't do original research but rather use the articles contained within the project. Contains a rubric for evaluation as well as a form for "pre-writing" so the process of research and final presentation is carefully controlled. Users need RealAudio to hear the howls of the wolves.

tag(s): conservation (127), endangered species (38), environment (317), species (29)

In the Classroom

Update this project a little and have students deliver their reports via podcast, giving them practice on oral reporting and editing. Use a site such as PodOmatic (reviewed here).Student groups can present their reports to the class or post the to the class wiki or webpage. Not comfortable with wikis? Have no wiki worries - check out the TeachersFirst's Wiki Walk-Through.
