This website appears "plain vanilla." But once you click on a chemistry topic, be prepared for an excellent, interactive chemistry tutorial or demonstration. Some general chemistry topics include electrochemistry, gas laws, thermochemistry, acid-base equilibria, stoichiometry, kinetics, and many others. The topics are for both high school and college (or AP). The website offers both simulations and animations. This website requires Flash, get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

This site provides a good introduction to science fairs to help teachers, students and parents. There are separate sections of information on getting started, choosing a topic, completing the project, displaying the project and the Scientific Method. The section and links on Scientific Method are quite useful, even if your school does not do a science fair.

tag(s): air (146), scientific method (66)

In the Classroom

As you study scientific method, use the science fair examples as exercises for students to identify independent and dependent variables for the various projects. Give students the links to "find" experiments and analyze them with a partner or do this analysis as a class, sharing the project ideas on a projector or interactive whiteboard. The whiteboard tools would allow you to color code and highlight the various steps of scientific method consistently to help learning support students.

Include this site on your teacher web page for students and parents to access as a reference. Consider directing students and parents to particular links within this site that apply to the science fair students are participating in.

tag(s): matter (59), states (165)

In the Classroom

Use this site as an anticipatory set or "activator" to introduce a unit or lesson on a projector. Pair students to enter their observations about the change process on a worksheet as they try the activity. Then try demonstrating the change using real heat and liquid in front of the students to have them predict and narrate the change process. They could also diagram the steps on an interactive whiteboard.

Click to open Riding Snowflakes and then the Kids Site-Play Games. Discover three activities by opening the top bubble "Nanolab" on this page: "Build" explains the molecules of basic compounds, "Zoom" shows molecules from space, and "Transform" teaches about states of matter. Other areas of the website show digital views of compounds and fantastic animated video trailers in the Digital Dome. The Gallery is a series of musical animated views of different molecular arrangements and states of matter. Back on the home page click Educators then Educators Resources. find many additional activities under the Guide to Nanospace tab, and a printable teacher's resource guide for help and suggestions by clicking the Educator Resources tab.

In the Classroom

Turn on your speakers! Be sure to explore this site completely before attempting to use it with your class to be able to navigate comfortably. The use the site on a projector or interactive whiteboard as an introductory lesson on atoms and molecules. Once your lesson is complete, be sure the site is available for students to revisit on their own on a classroom computer (with headphones) or as link from your web page. Teachers of the gifted may wish to bookmark this site for their students to explore on their own. Whether exploring at a computer center, on their own, or as a class, instruct students to create blogs sharing their learning, drawings, and understanding of matter, molecules, and atoms using Pen.io, reviewed here. This blog creator requires no registration. If you are teaching younger students and looking for an easy way to integrate technology and check for understanding, challenge your students to create a blog using EasyBlog, reviewed here. An alternative would be to have students upload their drawings to Thinglink, and create an annotated image including text boxes, audio explanations, and related links and videos.

This online tool lets you create(or "share" someone else's existing) online calculations/spreadsheets. You can also display instant graphs of the spreadsheet contents. The spreadsheets are displayed in terms that ordinary people can understand and allow you to "plug in" numbers to see instant results. Some of the shared calculators already online are surface area and volume of geometric solids, interest calculators, body mass index, and more sophisticated business functions. The best way to see how the site works is to read through their "tour" then click to browse through the examples, especially the shared ones. Even if you never create your own, this tool is great!
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): addition (225), calculators (42), conversions (24), multiplication (211)

In the Classroom

Visit the site and observe how the shared examples work. If you find one you like, you can get the link (try the little disk icon) to go directly to it. If you are feeling more adventurous, try creating one of your own, perhaps for calculating the class average on a test. Your web-savvy students will love this tool for collaborative lab reports or graphs of statistics. For safety's sake do not use any student names or information if you share calcs online.

This website provides numerous teacher-created PowerPoints. Some of the presentations are excellent, while others are just mediocre. The range of topics goes from astronomy, to history, to French and much, much more! There is something good here for every classroom. You MUST have PowerPoint software (not free) to be able to download and edit the shows.

In the Classroom

Use the small blue buttons to find your subject(s). This site is great for finding/sharing an interactive whiteboard activity or projected lesson. Since the PowerPoint shoes are editable, you may want to customize the shows you find. The grade equivalents are listed in the British system: KS1=ages 5-7; KS2=ages 7-11;KS3= ages 11-14;KS4= ages 14-16, A Level=ages 16-18.

This highly creative website combines the periodic table with actual comics. There are comic strip stories for all (or nearly all) of the elements. This website offers a new approach to teach a complex subject! A favorite aspect of this approach is that they include both recent comics and comics from over 50 years ago. This website presents basic scientific information in a fun and student-friendly manner. Connect to your students' "prior knowledge" of comic books to hook them on chemistry.

tag(s): elements (36), latin (22), periodic table (52)

In the Classroom

Get an interactive whiteboard and utilize this excellent website to help your students better comprehend the periodic table. These comics are packed with knowledge and fun to use! You will certainly want to include it on your teacher web page for studens to explore outside of class time.

This site is designed to be a resource for teachers and students on the atom bomb. There is an interactive time line, excellent graphics on the physics of the atom bomb, biographies of major characters in the story and good teacher resources including lesson plans. This site might be useful to both science and social studies teachers. The graphics on the physics of the atom bomb are great, but the historical context setting and discussion is also excellent. There are links to WebQuests, and information about California state standards met by the lesson plans.

In the Classroom

Consider using this exploration about the development of the bomb as a focus while studying atomic particles or twentieth century history. The webquests are ready-to-go units or you can "cherry pick" sites to feature as a single class activity on laptops or in a lab.
