This reference page from Ocean.com offers a continually changing collection of stories about people who work at sea and the creatures that live in the oceans. Nicely illustrated, this would be a good supplement to an oceans unit.

Try this one if you're interested in a site offering "what's happening right now" content. NOAA uses this space to chronicle dozens of past and current ocean research projects - providing daily logs and images for each activity. You can read daily dispatches from researchers and follow along to see how "doing science" on a daily basis works.

This site offers a three-part unit on the oceans that emphasizes the effects that humans can have in destroying or preserving marine ecosystems and species. There are detailed lesson plans and supplementary materials. There are also numerous sound clips to accompany the lessons, and we had difficulty making these work properly. That said, the content is perfectly sufficient without the sound.

Monterey Bay aquarium offers several live webcams showing ongoing activities in the facility. Users can watch the penguins swim, and watch the otters watch the people. There are many things to see here, and there are also lots of instructional activities that can go along with the tour. A high-speed connection is s must for this one, though.

This is a somewhat different look at seashore environments from the Oceans and Fisheries department that works in Canada's Atlantic provinces. There is information about shoreline habitats, the impact of development on shoreline environments, and the life forms and ecosystem of shoreline areas. There is also a variety of lesson information.

tag(s): oceans (148)

In the Classroom

This site would be a nice comparison to a similar site from a southern or tropical location. How does the environment differ in the two locations?

This is by far the best web-dissection site we've seen. The site lets students do a hands-on dissection, complete with detailed explanations of each step. Better yet, this site is available in either of two forms - a straightforward dissection or an expanded version that includes pretests and quizzes intermixed with the dissection content. If you have more students than frogs, this one's for you.

This farming simulation is no leisure game. It blends biology, weather, and economic concepts to produce a sophisticated simulation of a farming environment. It's a great exercise to illustrate all the factors that go into any business, and the presentation is sure to hold students' attention. From the Columbus Science Museum. The site requires FLASH and may take some time to open. If you do not have the most current version of Flash, get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): business (58)

There's lots of depth to this one. A thorough preview will help you decide how deeply students should work.

While this exercise is from a site on science and optics, the KWL strategy - a structured form of questioning and answering - is applicable to the study of many topics other than science. Teachers will like this one because it outlines multiple strategies for both inquiry and presentation, giving examples from science, literature, and art.

tag(s): inquiry (37), inventors and inventions (101)

In the Classroom

If you're not familiar KWL, this is a great starting point.

This unit lets students relate physical characteristics to genetic and environmental factors. Phenotypes are the physical characteristics that we develop from our genotype (our genetic makeup). Both the environment and our genotype interact to make us what we are. Any genetic unit can incorporate this lesson as an activity to introduce genotype and phenotype. This lesson plan was one of the winners in a lesson plan contest sponsored by TeachersFirst. TeachersFirst editors have added technology options where appropriate.

tag(s): genetics (90)

In the Classroom

Students this age will love the technology options in this lesson plan. Don't be afraid to learn some of the newer tools together.

The Genetic Science Learning Center at the University of Utah provides a collection of information and other resources on genetics and genetic engineering for students and their teachers. This is a particularly well-organized academic site.

tag(s): dna (69), genetics (90)

In the Classroom

Use this site to help students review a unit on genetics. There are plenty of links that students can access reviewing a number of subjects within genetics. Save the site on your class wiki or web page to allow students to access it both in and out of the classroom. The "tour the basics" link would also be great at the beginning of a unit on genetics to assess what knowledge the students already have, and bring them all up to speed. Any science teacher should save this site and use it frequently in their class!

These resources from the National Human Genome Research Institute offer a series of modules for secondary students that deal with genetics, genome sequencing, and the ethical implications of genetic research and development. Find links to Journals, Resources, and Databases. This material assumes some level of prior experience on the part of both teacher and student. The site also provides a number of links to additional web resources. This is challenging content for faculty and students willing to make the effort. Students will find the glossary found here helpful.

tag(s): dna (69), ethics (16), genetics (90), sequencing (31)

In the Classroom

Looking at the map of the all the human chromosomes (GeneMap99) is an interesting way to introduce genetics and tie research into genetic studies in the classroom. Students can investigate the traits of students in the classroom and determine the different variations. Provide a link to this site to determine the chromosome and location on the chromosome for the trait. Find data about the frequency of the different variations in different populations around the world. Use the trait to complete genetic crosses. Do research and create an informational brochure, blog post, website page, or presentation on the findings. Have students create blogs using Throwww (reviewed here). This site allows you to create "quick and easy" blogs to be used one time only. There is no registration necessary!
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.
