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 (128), endangered species (40), environment (319), species (30)

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 (29)

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.

tag(s): africa (175), animals (291), environment (319), problem solving (277)

In the Classroom

Your students will need a good 15-30 minutes to complete this activity either as a class or individually. Don't forget to use an interactive whiteboard if you are doing this as a class activity. Students will want to visit again at home, so include the link on your teacher web page, as well.

Try this online interactive to teach about genetics and disease resistance among tigers. This is a "hands-on" activity that forces students to think about the repercussions of genetic factors. Before using this with students, investigate the Teachers Resources on this landing page for information, activities to use with students, and videos. You can turn off the sound for the interactive, if it starts to get to you, but the animated simulation both displays and reads the text, a helpful touch for differentiating for ESL or learning support students.

tag(s): biodiversity (35), diversity (33), genetics (95)

In the Classroom

Consider using a video from the TigerTouch resource with the class as a whole to create interest. You could even flip your class and assign viewing for home work. If flipping you may want to consider having students answer pertenent questions or take notes while while watching. Use a tool like EdPuzzle, reviewed here, to accomplish this. Next, demonstrate use of this interactive and challenge them to create the best breeding plan. In order to create a breeding plan, students should see the basic information about tigers from the 5 Tigers link, and complete some of the worksheets offered on the landing page. Then, let students navigate the interactive themselves on lab or laptop computers. You could even assign it as homework if everyone has Internet access. Be sure to follow up with some discussion or written activity to hold students accountable for more than click-madness. If you plan on using the New York Times resource, you will need to type in the title of the article "Improbably Tigers."

Don't forget to get an interactive whiteboard for these unique genetic "games." Use this opportunity to have the students look at their own genetic make-up (including ears, dimples and more). Although standards and goals/objectives are not provided, you could easily use this web page as an entire lesson. Include the link to the game on your teacher web page for students to review before a test on genetics. Note: the pages require reading at a middle school level, so you may need to pair weaker readers with someone who can read it aloud with them.

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 (291), energy (203), mammals (34), motion (61), plants (156), space (217), water (131), water cycle (33), weather (198)

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!

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 (140), inquiry (37), medicine (70), olympics (49)

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.
