From the Canadians (and who would know better?) comes this detailed explanation of wind chill, how to calculate it, and how it affects us. Try this one as a handy reference tool or as a mathematical challenge for students. For extra credit, have them convert the Celsius formulas into Fahrenheit!

tag(s): temperature (31), weather (194)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a reference tool for students working on a wind chill lesson or activity. Have students determine the wind chills of multiple locations using the formulas and information on this site. Be sure to save the site as a favorite on classroom computers to allow students easy retrieval of the information.

Created at Beloit College, this slightly quirky collection of Quicktime movies and applets illustrates aspects of global warming and climate change from the last ice age to the present. Additional text explains many of the concepts, but the site is primarily a visual tool.

tag(s): climate (92), weather (194)

In the Classroom

Teachers may find this one an interesting tool kit to use when discussing global warming issues.

There's a variety of information on tigers available from this Canadian site dedicated to preserving tigers and their habitats. The text includes well-illustrated descriptions of various tiger subspecies and the countries in which they live. Other areas of the site are still "under construction." This one could be used at a variety of grade levels.

As with anything involving water, lots of the good stuff in this site lies beneath the surface. Developed by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the site introduces the interplay of science, public policy, and resource management that go into managing water resources. These take the form of a collection of lessons and related background information that ask students to examine scientific facts and develop management strategies for water resources.

tag(s): environment (319), resources (112), water (131)

In the Classroom

Both the approach and the lesson topics are attractive, and this one could be a winner for thoughtful secondary science faculties.

Geography and earth science teachers will drool over NASA's collection of earth images made from the International Space Station. Use them to illustrate topographic formations and features, then move on to special sets that cover more specific areas. You'll need to make your own connections, but there's plenty of raw material in this one.

tag(s): biomes (115), earth (231), images (271), landforms (45)

Elementary students will likely need some guidance in using this site.

This striking page is the home for a year-long exploration of biodiversity by Chicago's Field Museum. There's a wealth of information and resources, especially for teachers. If you're near Chicago, there are also lots of opportunities for hands-on interaction, but there are also many online and downloadable resources that biology or earth science faculty may find useful. This one is probably worth checking periodically over the next year.

Conserving the habitats of sea birds is an international concern. This South African site examines a variety of conservation issues, including the interactions between sea birds and international fishing fleets. There are a variety of searchable databases as well as presentations on the issues facing different species of birds. This one's interesting in that it presents some conservation issues that students might not have heard about.

Here's a really nice site that offers 3-D models of marine species that students can rotate and manipulate for detailed examinations. If you don't have a supply of crabs and mollusks handy, this site is a great substitute. Along side you'll find lots of descriptive, explanatory text. This one could be integrated into a variety of secondary biology or marine environment units.

Photography can be both an art form and a form of scientific inquiry. Photos of People and Cultures can promote human understanding better than any written words. This site from National Geographic can serve both ends if used properly. Art teachers "focus" on tips and techniques and photography advice areas, while science/social studies teachers will easily locate a wide range of plant, animal, culture, and geography images. As always, the photos themselves are exquisite.

tag(s): animals (284), photography (160)

In the Classroom

Share a photo of the day as an activator at the start of a lesson on your projector or interactive whiteboard. Allow a student of the day to select his/her photo of the day as a class inspiration. Share a photo as a visual writing prompt. Use tools on your IWB to discover and reveal design elements in the photos in art class. Use selected collections on laptops with student partners (galleries) to provide a visual experience of a location or culture you are studying, asking students to observe for visual evidence of some of the major concepts you have discussed in class.
