This is a comprehensive resource for geology students and faculty, providing links to research data, lecture notes, teaching materials, and geology projects. Developed by the University of Washington with support from Worth Publishing. Lots of depth, but the site assumes a working knowledge of the field.

Enchanted Learning offers this detailed geologic time line, showing geologic period from the Permain on forward. Time segments link to description of the creatures that thrived during those periods. It's a great site for showing students how much life had evolved before the dinosaurs arrived.

From U.C. Berkeley comes this site to help users understand and use the fossil record as an accurate indicator of the evolution and distribution of species. The site includes articles by several faculty citing teaching strategies and their scientific underpinnings. There are also various collections of resources intended for use by students, lesson ideas, and related materials. This is a rich resource; plan to spend some time on your visit.

This site from Texas A&M University provides information on the characteristics and life cycle of fire ants, and describes how and why they are moving northward. The site also shows how to prevent the ants from becoming a problem in areas inhabited by humans, livestock, and pets. The site could be a wonderful research resource for a biology or ecology report.

This site from Duke University offers a well-designed natural history and tour of Florida's everglades ecosystems as part of its overall study of wetlands. Special sections explain the role of wetlands and their relationship to the rest of Florida's natural resources.

tag(s): wetlands (11)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on the different biomes that exist, specifically the everglades. This activity works best if there's a graphic organizer to guide students along. If looking for an easy way to create graphic organizers, we recommend using Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).

This site from the National Audubon Society offers a "watch list" for hundreds of endangered bird species. While intended primarily for serious bird-watchers, the site contains the sort of sighting and location information that can help students understand how scientists determine whether a species population is endangered.

This site from New York's'? American Museum of Natural History provides information on several dozen endangered species, their habitats, and efforts to preserve these species and increase their numbers. Each species is really a case study, with significant detail on the plight of that species. Good site for a student interested in some serious research on one or more species.

tag(s): endangered species (40)

In the Classroom

Use this site as an anticipatory set or "activator" to introduce a unit or lesson on a projector. Explain the principles that lay behind endangered species, give a brief tutorial on using the website, and then divide students into small cooperative learning groups. Have each group pick a section on the website, such as "causes," "why help," etc. Have each student review and research their section, with the intentions of providing a brief presentation of their findings to their peers. To show what they have learned from this site, challenge students to create an online graphic to share using Tabblo reviewed here.

Want to know how your neighborhood has changed over the past 20 years? This USGS site compares satellite imagery from places all over the world to show the impact that growth and population changes are having on the earth's environment. It's tough to find this sort of comparison, and the visual impact of these photos makes the site particularly useful.

This site from the US Geologic survey provides highly detailed current information on volcanic activity throughout the world. While some of the information is suitable for students or non-professionals, there is also a good deal of highly technical content. A good site for those with a real interest in observing how scientists predict and record volcanic activity.

tag(s): volcanoes (64)

In the Classroom

As you plan for a volcanoes unit, be sure to check out the Educator's page on this site for mmaterials. Include the full site as a research link from your teacher web page, but students might also like to use some of the online versions of print pubications availabel in the Educator Resource area. These include pictures of volcanoes.

What happens to coastlines as a result of natural forces? What happens when people develop those coastlines? Where is the balance? This site explores the natural and man-made forces which have an impact on the state of the Carolina coast, and asks students to help determine how this resource can best be preserved. There are discussion starters and some simple lesson ideas.

This is a superb resource for students interested in studying the migratory patterns of birds. It presents several decades worth of data on migration and sightings of dozens of different species in North American. While the navigation is sometimes tricky, the site contains a wealth of possibilities for studying the relationships between ecosystems, climate, and other factors on the behavior of birds.

The University of California at Berkeley offers this unusually complete catalog of thousands of amphibian species from around the world. Users can perform keyword searches, then select from the results to see descriptions, photos, endangered species warnings, habitat information, and other facts about each species selected. It's a powerful research tool that makes comparisons among species especially easy.

tag(s): amphibians (20)

In the Classroom

Share this site on an interactive whiteboard or projector during a unit on the classification of animal kingdoms. The site provides a good example of the classifications, and can be easily searched for specific species if students are doing a research project. Forewarning: the classifications are all the Latin names of the reptiles, so it is best to know the creature you're searching for beforehand. Allow students to explore the site on their own, and post on the teacher web page if there are any research projects to allow students to access it both in and out of the classroom.
