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.

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.

Besides identifying trees, users learn about forest ground layers, enrich their vocabulary, study tree anatomy and health, and hone their searching skills. When users are looking for the name of tree by looking at its leaf, this website will identify the leaf and then lead to so much more information! People who want to learn how to take care of trees learn about soils, types of land, and even how to plant (video included)!

tag(s): trees (30)

In the Classroom

A good reference resource for outdoor outings involving leaf collecting or as a reference site during your botany unit. There are portions of the site where items and memberships are for sale, so preview and alert your students to avoid these areas.

This animated site is amazing! The entire site is a journey throughout the African forest. Along the way, students have four African children offering advice. Their parents include a researcher, forest ranger, farmer and more! The African characters' expertise helps the student to choose which way to go next. The site includes a forest fact book, information about African animals and forests. A special asset of this unique site is that it incorporates problem-solving skills. Hints are given, but the student has to choose which option would be best. The site requires FLASH! Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

Take these interactive "walks" in a virtual temperate forest of Virginia to learn about biodiversity, soil study, tree identification, seasonal change, forest mapping, amphibians, and more. The walks are part of a larger set of modules on Conservation done by the National Zoo. Each "walk" is available with or without narration. The download is quite lengthy for the narrated version during peak time periods, even over a broadband connection, but weaker readers can more easily understand this spoken version. The small links to each option are below the clip art icons with the descriptions. There are also Acrobat Reader files of teacher materials. Correlation to Virginia science standards is available.

tag(s): biodiversity (38), diversity (36), oil (45), seasons (37), soil (17)

In the Classroom

Assign the students to take the "walks" to learn specific terms and concepts. You may want to start by modeling one of them on a projector. Note: If the download time is a problem, do them as a whole-class activity on a projector or interactive whiteboard. Once you have downloaded the "walk," it will run smoothly. Peak traffic on the site is likely between 11 am and 2 pm Eastern time due to traffic from throughout the U.S.
