This is a collection of copyright-free, downloadable historical images of wildlife in Alaska. Image quality is adequate for either web or most publication use. The search feature - the only way to access images - finds species easily, but doesn't do as well with place names.

tag(s): air (163), alaska (25), states (163)

In the Classroom

If you're looking for photos of early Alaska, this is a great resource.

Monterey Bay aquarium offers several live webcams showing ongoing activities in the facility. Users can watch the penguins swim, and watch the otters watch the people. There are many things to see here, and there are also lots of instructional activities that can go along with the tour. A high-speed connection is s must for this one, though.

This site from San Francisco's Exploratorium chronicles the journey of a team of scientists from McMurdo sound to the South Pole. The study topics included everything from global warming to continental drift, and there are lots of reports and images to prove it. This would be a nice background site for an Antarctica unit.

This webquest gives high schoolers a tall order: come up with a workable renewable energy policy to work with a business. The quest offers leads to information on renewable resources and suggestions on areas in which these resources can be economically viable. The rest is up to your students. This one has lots of possibilities.

For the sales pitch presentations, consider having students use Google Docs, reviewed here, instead of Microsoft PowerPoint. This will make upload time faster and grading easier, as they can simply share them with your google account.

Much of the U.S. is experiencing mild to severe drought conditions. The wealth of charts and maps on this NOAA site will serve you well for a discussion of climates and long-term weather prediction. These graphics would also be a great study project for students who are building their skills at interpreting and analyzing graphical presentations of data. Try this one while you're waiting for the rain.

The teachers' section of this site suggests activities and resources which teachers can use to enhance a unit on minerals, geology, or earth science. The quality of the links varies, but the good breadth of topics makes this one worth a look if you're headed into a unit on these topics.

tag(s): minerals (17), rocks (49)

In the Classroom

Introduce a topic on minerals or rocks using this site on the interactive whiteboard or projector. The site has some excellent images of every mineral and rock, which could easily accompany a verbal lesson. Post the site on the class web page or wiki to allow students to use it for review both in an out of the classroom. (Note: for classes that require an Identification exam of minerals and rocks, this is an excellent site for review!)

Follow a team of scientists visiting Antarctica from December, 2001 to January, 2002. If you miss the live events, there are lots of reports filed on activities conducted during the visit. This site also has background sections on the Antarctic climate, the history of exploration, and the scientific tools and tasks involved in Antarctic science. From the Exploratorium.

tag(s): antarctica (29), arctic (44), explorers (61)

In the Classroom

Use this videos on this site as a learning center or station during a unit on the water cycle or Continental Drift during an Earth Sciences or Physical Geography class. This activity would work best with a graphic organizer - we recommend Graphic Organizer Maker, (reviewed here).

The link concerning continental drift, entitled Gondwanaland, would also be a great activator to that unit. Share the site on the interactive whiteboard or projector to help students visualize how the spreading of the continents took place over the eons.
