This visually exciting site includes step by step presentations of more than a dozen meteorological concepts from water cycles to en Nino to hurricanes and blizzards. There are separate sections for hurricanes and severe storms, as well as a case studies section which highlights unusual weather events of the past decade. Many of the visuals use the Macromedia Shockwave player.

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 (9)

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 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 (38)

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 (61)

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.

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.
