National Geographic works their predicable visual wizardry in this site which chronicles an ongoing expedition along the Congo river. The site blends images and sounds - (Turn your speakers on!) - to give vivid impressions of this jungle ecosystem. This site could be a wonderful addition to your unit on Africa, jungles, rain forest habitats, or related areas.

tag(s): africa (180), endangered species (38), species (29)

In the Classroom

There are a few lesson ideas in the "Classroom Ideas" area, but you probably have many more. Share the site on an interactive whiteboard as a great unit introduction or assign students to take the trek with a partner and find examples of human's impact on animal habitats or answer questions about elephants and their behavior and habitat. After the journey, have them write a journal or blog entry about what they saw and learned.

Students create and maintain a compost pile to discover how natural materials can be effectively recycled using this inteactive composting site. This site requires FLASH. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.. As the site warns, "If you use a pop-up blocker, temporarily disable blocking to enjoy all of this site's capabilities."

tag(s): pollution (66), recycling (57)

In the Classroom

This site would be great on an interactive whiteboard or projector, but be sure to allow students to explore it on their own or with a partner to really experience the psocesses and answer questions about composting.
 This resource requires Adobe Flash.

tag(s): acid rain (5), ecology (135), pollution (66)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource during a lesson or unit on acid rain. Have cooperative learning groups explore the site, with the intentions of summarizing the information in a multimedia presentation. Have cooperative learning groups create online books using a tool such as Bookemon, reviewed here. Have groups tell the "acid" rain, explaining where and how it happens most. Great for a pre-discussion activity about the efforts to stop acid rain.

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.

The University of Florida has compiled a listing of insects holding the record for the biggest, fastest, smallest, etc., etc. A good collection of insect trivia, as well as a potential starting point for a more serious exploration of insects and the way they live.

tag(s): insects (69)

In the Classroom

While some of the world records might make students a little queasy, (see the worlds biggest bug) this site would be an excellent way to get students interested in the study of insects. Share the site on an interactive whiteboard or projector, and allow students to explore it in groups. What would be interesting is to see how many record holders were local insects. Have students create a digital record book, including images on a site such as Bookemon, reviewed here.
