The Mystery Spot provides interactive modules great for building reading comprehension and science reasoning. It has seven modules that challenge you to read and research different diseases, and problem solve your way to a correct diagnosis of the issue. Modules include convenient links to further information about the diseases, symptoms, and medical tools used so you gain a thorough understanding of the content. Best of all, they are fun and engaging!
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): critical thinking (108), diseases (66), problem solving (272), puzzles (208)

In the Classroom

Use the interactive modules early in the school year to develop critical thinking skills. Or, use as an end of the year activity to review different diseases and problem solving strategies that students have learned. Instruct students to read the activity and take notes. Encourage them to explore the extra links. Students can create charts to organize the information they have gathered. Students should submit their work and conclusions and discuss different possibilities.

Learn about the life and careers of many famous scientists by viewing intriguing videos. Find out about scientists such as Richard Feynman, Rosalind Franklin, and Gregor Mendel through interviews with scientists in their field today. Don't let the cartoon figures fool you: these videos are not "juvenile." The scientists included may not be household names to everyone, but the videos make their work accessible and interesting. At the time of this review, there were over a dozen scientists included, and more were being added regularly. Note that the actual videos are hosted on YouTube so may not be accessible in some schools. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): biographies (87), darwin (11), scientists (69)

In the Classroom

Use as a resource for finding more information about a variety of different scientists told from a scientist's perspective. Share the videos on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Consider having students create their own report about the importance of research and not just the biographical information about a scientist. Encourage students to make their own videos (or other presentation tool) about scientists to place on a wiki, site, or blog. Have students use one of the many TeachersFirst Edge multimedia tools reviewed here.

Choose between still images and videos that explain complex Biology concepts. Find great animations of ATP synthase, the electron transport chain, protein modification, photosystems, photosynthesis, transcription, and more. Use the navigation on the left hand side to choose between "Cellular Processes" and "Molecular Processes." Find descriptions for many of the animations on the front page along with a direct link.

tag(s): cells (102), photosynthesis (33), respiration (17)

In the Classroom

Use this free site for greater differentiation among learners in the Biology classroom. Use these animations at any point in a unit of study in Cell Biology. Use animations (on your projector or interactive whiteboard) as much of the content is very difficult for many students to grasp. Use animations with students summarizing the process in their own words for later review. Create a study guide that follows the processes and asks important points. Use the animations to create a vocabulary list to provide ahead of time to become familiar with the difficult language of Biology. Challenge students to create flashcards (with the key vocabulary words) using a site such as Funnelbrain (reviewed here).
