Giving geology or earth science students the "big picture" can be difficult. This site from the US Geologic Survey uses colors and topographic maps to explain geologic time periods and phenomena. Along the way, there are lots of links to specific time periods and features showing where interesting things were happening millions of years ago. This one is worth some exploration; there's lots to see.

tag(s): geologic time (9), geology (81), logic (235), time (144)

National Geographic offers this complex site detailing Jane Goodall's return to the African jungles in which she has done pioneering work on the life habits of chimps. Creative teachers will find uses for this one in studying primates, issues about "how scientists do science," rain forest ecosystems, and the like. This one offers lots of possibilities.

The site from the University of Illinois Extension offers tips and guidelines for controlling or eliminating the effects of pesticides in common household and garden situations. While not intended specifically for students, teachers could use these guidelines as part of a unit on managing the environment, environmental policy, or ecology.

While this day of recognition (April 21) may be better known in California, Muir's legacy of concern for conservation had a national impact, as is evident from this Sierra Club site. In addition to documents relating to creating the California holiday, teachers will find a John Muir Day study guide in Adobe Acrobat format that outlines Muir's life and the conservation issues for which he fought.

This one's an oddity. It combines very good, very brief introductory pages on the essentials of geology with very detailed information on geochemistry, exploration, and testing methods. While the basics will work well for high school, or even middle school students, we suspect teachers will find the other content less helpful. Try this one as a reference source for hardness, geologic time periods, and the like.

This is an elaborate unit for middle or high school students that deals with specialized radar systems used to track ocean currents. It includes several simulations and flash animations that let students simulate this tracking process. Because it's fairly complex content, this site might best be used as part of another unit on marine ecosystems, the oceans, or other related materials. Teachers will want to preview this one before using it.

Click on the "Migration Patterns" link for an elegant look at the migration patterns of more than a dozen species from around the world. While designed to promote a film, this site is also a great teaching tool for the study of bird migration. Users with high-speed connections can hear audio and watch video clips of each bird. Truly neat!

You'll find more than just the bear facts (sorry...) at this site. There are sections about brown, black, polar, and grizzly bears, offering decent writeups on each, along with some very nice photographs. A kids' section offers several well-captioned slide shows about bears and their habits. This is a good example of a site that has effective text and visuals without lots of overboard effects. If bears are in your habitat, this one's a great resource.

Presented by a sanctuary in Tennessee, this site describes the sanctuary's efforts to keep aging Asian elephants healthy, and includes information about these animals and their native habitats. There's also a fair amount of fund-raising information, but students will find the factual content interesting.

Developed at Cornell University, this site offers a framework to help high school students conduct environmental science research and participate in communities of fellow student scientists. There are research protocols and discussion groups for a number of topics, as well as links to newly published text materials. The web content, however, seems to stand independently of the print materials. Secondary science, biology, and earth science teachers will find this one interesting.

Want the weather for Wellington? Will it be balmy in Bombay? This UN weather site has weather information for cities all over the world. As such, it's a ready store of climate data for any unit on weather observations, or even to use as an illustration of variances around the globe. It's nothing fancy, but there's lots of information.

BBC's companion web site to the program of the same name offers quizzes (e.g. name this sound...), live web cams, and lots of supplementary information on how mammals live. While teachers won't be able to build a complete curriculum here, the variety of activities could be a neat supplement to elementary or middle school studies of animals and habitats. You'll want a fast connection to make some of these features work well.
