This is an online simulation game focuses on sustainable fishing (NOT the Stock Market as the title might lead one to believe!). Students can manipulate variables (numbers of fishing boats, catch quotas) and see how those changes affect both the bottom line and the environment. Each change results in a year's worth of data (up to 15 year's worth), and then reactions from different stakeholders. The game can be played at a basic level and at an advanced level.

tag(s): environment (317), fish (24), resources (112)

In the Classroom

The game could be helpful in showing students that "success" in a business that affects the environment can be measured in a number of ways: cash flow, environmental impact, community support. The game could be played cooperatively by groups of students on an interactive whiteboard, or could be played individually by students. Since it's available on-line, students could be instructed to play the game at home or during study halls and then be prepared to share their individual data in group discussion. Requires FLASH!

This interactive website is amazing - both informative and entertaining. Students are sent on a mission as an investigative reporter from a local newspaper. This interactive lesson takes students up close to the Philippines to observe seahorses. Students also complete their investigations by interviews and library research all pre-created at the Shedd Aquarium. The culminating activity requires students to prepare a persuasive article. This site is extremely well done and students will enjoy the videos, unique activities and the original way that the information is presented. Note: our editors had difficulty accessing some of the interview videos. There's apparently a codec issue with these. That's geek speak for, "They don't work." The rest of the site works fine, however, just be sure to pre-test videos you assign to students.

tag(s): conservation (127)

In the Classroom

Use this investigation to spice up your conservation, marine biology or general science classes. It is multi-disciplinary and very interesting.

Listen to songs to teach important (and less important) science concepts. This collection of MP3 files was generated from an old set of records (yes, those round vinyl things that had scratches). While the actual copyright holder information is a gray area, you can feel safe in playing the songs from the site. Most likely, these songs from the 1950s and 60s are past copyright at this point. In any case, you can click to play from smaller or larger file versions. Be patient while they load, even over a broadband connection. It will be worth the wait to teach parts of plants, the water cycle, weather, motion, energy, electricity, and MANY other topics with just a computer and set of speakers to help students retain the information. Most of the content is elementary to middle school age, but some is high school level. Learning support teachers seeking alternate study strategies will love this one!

tag(s): animals (276), energy (197), mammals (32), motion (58), plants (144), space (205), water (130), water cycle (33), weather (188)

In the Classroom

Include the links to specific songs for review on your teacher web site or play one of the songs as students enter the room (a sort of audio anticipatory set). You will definitely need to turn up the speakers. Elementary music teachers might want to pick up one of the songs while the students are studying these topics and teach the music and lyrics during music class!

Living in an Alkaline Environment is a three-part activity that explores the ecology and diversity of life in alkaline environments. The activities feature Mono Lake, CA as an example of an alkaline, hypersaline ecosystem. The first two activities on this site are classroom lesson plans, and the third is an online investigation. Complete lesson plans and standards are included. The final activity asks students to draw upon their new knowledge to research organisms living in and around Mono Lake, and create field guide pages and a food web detailing the Mono Lake ecosystem.

tag(s): ecology (135)

Really excite your AP biology, ecology, and biochemistry students with these real-world applications of the sciences in solving problems. Each case is presented in a narrative, and the learner resources include advice on reading cases, collecting data, and all the steps to solve the problems. There are over two dozen problems across several biology, chemistry, ecology, and molecular biology disciplines. These are college-level problems, so you may want to use one as a whole-class activity to model the process and spur enthusiasm for further scientific study. The ideal is then to allow groups of students to continue with the investigations, if they have sufficient knowledge to do so on their own.

tag(s): genetics (90), scientific method (64)

In the Classroom

Review the cases and select one that extends your curriculum, then share it on a projector so students are not overwhelmed by the level of sophistication at first. These would also be ideal for gifted high school students interested in the sciences.

AP Biology teachers will love these downloadable, advanced mathematical models (Excel and other) for many biology concepts in ecology, botany, genetics, biochemistry, and more. Created for college classrooms, the models are quite sophisticated and may be best used by advanced students or as a whole-class activity. These models provide real-world application of mathemetical and scientific concepts that are certain to excite budding scientists. The desciptions include computer software specifications for successful use. Some examples of applications include: a model for biogeography and the impact of mainland species pool, area of the island, and distance of the island from the mainland on the species available on the island; a 3D mathematical model of various factors' impact on the growth of tree branches; and a worksheet that simulates the population growth of two interacting species

tag(s): ecology (135), environment (317), modeling (9), species (29), statistics (122)

In the Classroom

Teachers eager to spread enthusiasm for true scientific inquiry and use of mathematical tools in the sciences may want to select one of these tools to extend their regular curriculum. Share it on a projector so students are not overwhelmed with the college-level material at first.

Learn about the anatomy of the knee and how doctors perform knee surgery through this online simulation. It even includes a separate section with actual photographs for the strong-stomach crowd. The animated movie has the option to display subtitles (for the hearing impaired or computers without speakers) and stops to ask questions all along the way. The activities are correlated to Ohio and National standards. Teach about scientific inquiry using the section where you select the correct prosthetic knee device. Not only is this site an interesting look at a science topic for biology, anatomy, or physiology classes, it also provides a view into medical careers.

tag(s): careers (132), inquiry (37), medicine (67), olympics (47)

In the Classroom

Share this site as a real-world extension of a biology class on anatomical structures or in a career exploration activity. Students can navigate on their own computers or access the site from your teacher web page for use outside of class. Guidance counselors may want to include it among career links they offer to middle and high school students. Use this site during the Olympic games to discuss injuries that athletes may endure.
