This tutorial from the University of Arizona offers a step-by-step introduction to the scientific method, the role of organisms' size in biology, the history of cell research in biology, and the various cell parts and reproductive stages. The tutorial includes study questions, and would be a useful resource for independent study or review.

tag(s): cells (102), scientific method (64)

In the Classroom

Use this tutorial to help students review before a unit assessment. Set this site up as a learning station or center OR post the site on the teacher webpage to allow students to use it both in and out of the classroom. This would be a great study resource in a biology classroom.

This is a French site which discusses world population growth, individual and sociological factors which affect that growth, and the implications of continued population growth for earth's ecosystems. Teachers and parents, please note: This site was created in France, where standards for discussions of reproduction, sexuality, and human behavior are more frank than may be customary in the U.S. Both the information and the presentation are engaging, but the approach may be too direct for your circumstances. Preview thoroughly before using.

This site from the University of Michigan uses a highly detailed collection of MRI scans of embryos to produce complete three-dimensional views of a human embryo as various developmental stages. The site also offers tools to let viewers select a particular MRI "slice" to show the embryo's internal structures. The images are fascinating.

MendelWeb is a rich hypermedia site that integrates the study of elementary mathematics (i.e. probability and statistics), classical genetics, European history, and the history of early modern biology. It is geared to both the high school/AP teacher and student. The section entitled "Secondary Sources and Tools" provides additional ideas and activities for use in the classroom. Noteworthy is the "Mendelroom" a virtual space designed for teachers and students who wish to share their experiences and ideas when using MendelWeb.

This site from the U.S. Department of Energy describes the origins and goals of the Human Genome Project, as well as the reasons for DOE's involvement. It offers a literate, sometimes challenging introduction to the effort to map the entire human genetic code. Apart from its obvious use for report research, the site could also serve as an introduction to genetics, cloning, or other aspects of high-tech biology.

BBC's Flash-enabled tour of the human body couples nice animations with relatively detailed descriptions of the major organs and body systems. The texts explain the roles of each body part in maintaining digestion, respiration, circulation, and overall body metabolism. There are also limited links to external information sources. The animations do a particularly good job of showing "how all the parts fit together."

tag(s): body systems (57), respiration (17)

This site from the US Fish and Wildlife Service's Office of Protected Resources provides detailed information on endangered species, their habitats, and the circumstances of their endangered classification. While some information is designed for working professionals, other elements are suitable for use by interested students.

tag(s): endangered species (38), species (29)

In the Classroom

This site would be an excellent resource for any unit conservationism, ecosystems, and endangered species. Have students use this site as a resource for research projects about specific animals. The site provides images, information and statistics what would be extremely helpful! Save this site on your class web page to allow students to access it both in and out of the classroom.

This site offers an introduction to three areas of bioology: cells, chemistry, and ecology, along with a set of study materials. Though the concepts are "real science," the language is approachable and interesting enough to keep students engaged. This site is well worth a look for use as either a self-study or a resource to accompany an introduction to biology. Part of the Kapili.com collection.

This site is a gold mine of illustrations, artwork, and images for teaching biology. Divided into separate sections for human biology, histology, etc., the site offers hundreds of downloadable illustrations in GIF and Corel vector formats. Convenient thumbnail pages make selection simple, though there's lots to choose from. If your classroom is short on resources, this is a wonderful alternative. From the University of Ottawa, Canada.
