Wow - this resource is amazing! This website provides numerous activities and/or games for extra practice in literacy, math, science, history, geography, art, and religion. Some examples of the specific activities include, "Saving the Environment", "Fraction Monkeys", and "Ancient Egypt". The site provides a huge amount of topics and a wide range of activities. Note: The site is British, so beware of spelling differences!

tag(s): fractions (235), grammar (213), habitats (85), homework (46), human body (125), measurement (160), money (190), spelling (166)

In the Classroom

This website would be an excellent resource to use with an interactive whiteboard. You may also want to provide this link on your teacher web page for parents to use at home. Nearly all subject areas (and topics) are included. Do yourself a favor - and utilize this excellent resource! Learning support teachers will love the opportunities for their students to get extra practice.

This site accompanies a PBS episode on the sinking of the Andrea Doria. Following a "crime scene investigation" model, the episode looks at the controversy behind the collision between the Doria and the Stockholm in 1956, and efforts to examine the wreck off the coast of New England. The site's usefulness is not limited to history teachers, however! There is a significant portion devoted to the science of deep sea diving.

In the Classroom

Use the excellent flash-enabled interactive "Diving Deep" to illustrate the physical properties of deep-sea diving that can endanger the lives of divers. There is also a detailed lesson plan in the Teacher Toolbox section that offers hands-on activities for exploring gas laws that affect divers, and printable handouts that provide questions on the lessons.

As you study the decades of the 20th century, this site could also be an interesting independent project source for a student interested in the 50's. Gifted students as young as upper elementary might find it a springboard for a comparison of maritime disasters.

This is a companion site to a PBS series on the forces world wide that are affecting global population. There is a wealth of information here on historical trends in population growth, the impact of population on the environment, and the continuing imbalance between the rich and the poor in the world. There are flash-enabled slide shows illustrating global population growth over history, and the impact of that growth on the environment. Don't miss the population counter that starts when you load the home page. It shows how many babies are born in the world since the page first loaded, and the impact is startling! A teacher's guide gives further information about using the resources in the classroom.

tag(s): demographics (19), environment (320), population (61)

In the Classroom

Several excellent interactives might make a strong visual impact if used on an interactive whiteboard. There is an interactive quiz that might be a good discussion starter, and matching "game" that shows demographic trends in four contrasting countries: the US, Japan, Kenya and India. These interactives give impact to discussions of the global economy, world wide environmental changes and the balance of power between "developing" and "developed" countries. Put the population counter up on a projector as student enter the room to activate prior knowledge or provide an anticipatory set.

This site provides an organized and user-friendly explanation of the history of plate tectonics as described by the U.S. Geological Survey. It includes a lot of detailed information as well as photographs and diagrams. This site has some tough reading depending on the reading level of the user. Allow plenty of time to take in all of the information.

tag(s): earth (231), earthquakes (50), geology (83), plate tectonics (25), volcanoes (65)

In the Classroom

This site is useful as a supplement to a geology unit or for review. Include it on your teacher web page for students to access both in and out of class. It is also a great reference tool when preparing your lesson plans. This is a great site to use when teaching about informational text(s). Open it on an interactive whiteboard and review reading strategies using highlighters and pens as you learn about plate tectonics.

This site takes readers on a detailed, fourteen-day adventure down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. The trip includes breath-taking photos and a few videos of the river, canyon walls, plant life and local animals. The site maintains a wealth of knowledge on geologic history. Be prepared for some lengthy reading.

tag(s): geology (83)

In the Classroom

As they read the descriptions of the tour, students will find first-hand accounts of some of the research being done on the Colorado River. Since most teachers cannot take an actual trip to the Grand Canyon, use this site on laptops or a projector for a virtual trip. Ask questions requiring students to find examples of various types of rock or evidence of the geologic history of the canyon. A simple set of "why?" questions about various images will challenge students to apply what they know about rock, sediment, erosion, and more.

This tool allows you to calculate your contribution to greenhouse gasses by answering questions about lifestyle and behavior. A kids' version is also available. The calculator is intended for adults but is quite applicable to teenagers, especially those who drive a car. This site also includes ways to "offset" carbon emissions through tree planting, etc. Some of the information is part of initiatives for which the organization solicits funds, but the research and data are informative and sobering.

This resource was featured in a recent New Teacher Hotline Podcast as one of the Tech Toolbox resources. Hear more about it on the podcast .

tag(s): carbon (21), carbon footprint (11), climate (93), climate change (66), earth (231), earth day (111), environment (320)

In the Classroom

Share this and the kids' calculator on your teacher web site and ask students to come up with a plan to decrease their carbon emissions as part of your unit on environmental issues. This could be a "real world" connection in geography study of natural resources or a science class on climate change.

This powerful site will challenge your brightest students and get everyone thinking. Designed to spark interest of young scientists and thinkers in real world issues, this site is run by Johns Hopkins' famous program for gifted youth. Find feature articles on current research, Nobel laureates, and hot topics such as global warming. Explore the links for MANY outstanding sites not specifically for "education" as much as for real-world investigation and learning.

tag(s): careers (133), energy (202), gifted (94), summer (13)

In the Classroom

Teachers with high level, AP, or gifted students will want to explore this site during the summer months for inspiration and resources to use throughout the year. If your gifted program requires individual projects, send your students here to find ideas and to get energized! Even "regular" teachers, especially in the sciences, will want to share some of the current research topics and interviews that fit their curriculum. If you are looking for ways students and environmental clubs can get involved, check out the "Get Involved" section in the Sites and Tools menu.

One simple way to use the Interviews in a regular science classroom would be to have students research and act out an interview with a "mock" scientist, explaining what he/she does in order to expose students to the many fields included in the sciences.

Stellarium is a free, open source planetarium software for your computer. You must download the software and install it on your computer to create a planetarium-like experience right in your classroom. (Open source software is free to allow software developers to collaborate and improve on the products.) The download and install are not difficult, but you should ask someone for help if you are uncomfortable.

tag(s): planets (126), space (215), stars (66)

In the Classroom

You may need tech support to help you install the program on a school computer. There is an extensive wiki (user-contribution help section) to answer your questions about using Stellarium.

Try it on a projector in your classroom or even on an interactive whiteboard where students can draw and highlight items "in space." When you find successful strategies for using the software, be sure to participate in the wiki to share them. Or contact TeachersFirst to let us know more about ways to use Stellarium, so we can share them with other teachers!
