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.

tag(s): cold war (29)

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.

Learn basic facts about each element, including what it costs (!) using this interactive site. You can also learn how elements are named and much more. The site requires good reading skills, since the element names are quite challenging.

tag(s): elements (37), periodic table (52)

In the Classroom

This is an excellent reference to include as a link on your teacher web page for students to access in class or at home as they begin to study the elements. Be sure to assign a partner reader for weaker students if you are requiring students to research on their own.

This site, created by and for the largest independent school in France, is intedned to help teachers and students prepare for the IB tests in chemistry. A team of teachers from the school created the site. It includes extensive resources and readings on chemistry, as well as review activities. The content is separated into middle school and high school sections.

In the Classroom

Make this a reference link from your teacher web page or use the site as a different way to introduce content so students can move at thier own pace.

Investigate modern accomplishments in technology through these exhibits of technology accomplishments. Tech Ed and science teachers of all disciplines can highlight these accomplishments as real world connections to classroom learning or ask students to research the application of their classroom learning in the technology world. Of certain interest are topics that explain our systems of weights and measures, the technology time line, and the and stone wall test as a real world application of scientific method for practical purposes.

tag(s): engineering (126)

In the Classroom

Use this as a starting point for a research project or share portions on a projector as you begin units on different science and technology topics.

Note: This interactivity works on ROLLOVERS with a mouse, so this site is NOT suitable for an interactive whiteboard, since there is not mouse to "roll." This is a MUST link from your teacher web page during a chemistry unit or course.

This website is a wonderful resource for teachers. Some of the highlights include video footage from Bill Nye, episode guides for 100 shows, questions and answers, instructions for at-home learning fun, directions to make some unique science crafts and some very interesting science facts. The site requires FLASH. Some downloadable directions use Acrobat Reader. Get them from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): scientists (69)

In the Classroom

If showing your class a Bill Nye video, the episode guides will help to organize the lesson. Students may enjoy simply surfing the site, some very interesting facts are displayed! Don't forget to check out the "home demos" for some new ideas. This is a great site to include as a general enrichment link from your teacher web page. Hook some young scientists!
  This resource requires Adobe Flash and PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.

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 (287), energy (203), mammals (33), motion (62), plants (153), space (215), water (130), water cycle (34), weather (195)

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!

Really excite your AP biology, ecology, and biochemistry students with these real-world applications of the sciences in solving problems. Each case is presented in a narrative, and the learner resources include advice on reading cases, collecting data, and all the steps to solve the problems. There are over two dozen problems across several biology, chemistry, ecology, and molecular biology disciplines. These are college-level problems, so you may want to use one as a whole-class activity to model the process and spur enthusiasm for further scientific study. The ideal is then to allow groups of students to continue with the investigations, if they have sufficient knowledge to do so on their own.

tag(s): genetics (94), scientific method (65)

In the Classroom

Review the cases and select one that extends your curriculum, then share it on a projector so students are not overwhelmed by the level of sophistication at first. These would also be ideal for gifted high school students interested in the sciences.

High school chemistry teachers will find this collection dealing with the chemistry behind everyday objects and substances an interesting way to connect chemistry's abstractions to real life. Dealing with everything from light sticks to asphalt and baseballs, the site explains the chemical processes that make these things valuable.

Now imagine them as lyrics set to the music of Arthur Sullivan (as in "The Pirates of Penzance"), and you can begin to grasp the unique nature of this animated little gem. A perfect anticipatory set to liven up your science class. This site requires FLASH. If you see a blank screen, you need to install the Flash player. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

Chemistry students can breathe a sigh of relief. Help is only a mouse click away. This straightforward site, designed specifically for high school students, offers numerous tutorials covering such concepts as the nature of proof; atomic, molecular, and formula mass; significant digits, and atmospheric chemistry. A series of well-organized experiments provides assistance to chemistry teachers as well. While lacking in pizzazz, the site is rich in useful content.
