This one is hard to describe, but it offers a beautifully designed collection of close-ups of insects and their environments. Surprisingly well-written descriptions accompany these images, and there's a "magnify" feature that lets users see even more of the details. Younger students will enjoy the images, and secondary students will appreciate the descriptions and explanations.

tag(s): canada (30)

In the Classroom

During a class on environmental conservation, have students open this site on their individual computers. Looking at the site, what do they think would be the most beneficial actions to take to conserve land for bears? Use this site as a launchpad for a discussion on human-animal interaction, and the affect humans have had on their habitat. This site would also be a useful source for any student working on a research project, making it an excellent site to post on the class wiki or web page so students could access it both in and out of the classroom!
