This interactive game introduces students to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The activity provides students with historical, scientific, and medical information about the MRI. After the reader-friendly information, students have the opportunity to choose patients and take them in for an MRI. There is also a matching activity that compares images from X-Rays, MRIs, and CATs (computer assisted tomography). As you study science concepts such as magnetism, light waves, and other physical science concepts this application of scientific concepts to solve a problem (seeing inside the body) will make the concepts more meaningful. If your science curriculum includes study of famous scientists or types of science, this feature is one of several on the Nobel prize site. This site requires Flash. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): images (266)

In the Classroom

This site is ideal for an interactive whiteboard. This website does an excellent job simplifying the complicated science behind MRIs. Students doing research on applications of science in the real world could also use this as as research source(most likely at the middle school level).

This virtual field trip takes students to the Arizona Science Center. The featured activity, "Beat The Heat", challenges students to design a home that uses the sun's energy as heat, but not get too hot. The challenge involves balancing the amount of shade and sun that reach the home. It includes an interactive explanation of the sun and the seasons. This activity requires Shockwave, get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.. There are also numerous other science activities, links, online exhibits and even Standards provided (see the Teachers Page)across many science, math, and engineering disciplines. Click on the "experiments" link for a wealth of fun and inspiring experiments in science and math. The experiments are engaging and provide virtual opportunities for students to build individual understanding.

tag(s): dna (69), environment (317), sound (101), sun (71)

In the Classroom

If you are unable to get laptops or the computer lab for your class, use an interactive whiteboard and make the "Beat The Heat" or other experiments a class project. Use the seasons explanation as a whole-class activity with elementary students on a projector or whiteboard.

This website, funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education, provides an enormous collection of "web lessons" (interactives) for all grade levels. There are lessons in language arts, math, science, social studies, and health. There are too many lesson plans to count - and all are projector, laptop, or whiteboard-ready. Just to give you an idea of some of these unique lessons, some of the titles include "Where is Japan?", "Walrus World", "Piece of Pie", "Medians", "Fence Me In", and "Critter Craze". On the main page, a brief description is provided for each lesson plan. Click Teacher Solutions > Lesson Plans to search by subject or grade level.

tag(s): charts and graphs (195), evolution (100), expository writing (44), industrial revolution (25), native americans (78), primary sources (86), probability (130), symmetry (55), writing (359)

In the Classroom

If you want ready-to-go lessons guaranteed to work well on your interactive whiteboard, this collection is a winner. You simply open the activity on the whiteboard and have students tap and drag their way through as you talk with the class. (Invite your most "active" student to be "Vanna White" for a great behavior management solution). Many lessons would work well on laptops or on a computer cluster center, as well.

This site offers information about the devastating facts of domestic abuse. There is a 12-minute video (requires FLASH), real-life stories by students who have experienced domestic abuse, an interactive quiz and a vast array of information on the subject of domestic abuse. Remember this site was created in the UK, so some of the language may be new to your students. You may need to discuss the noticeable differences.

In the Classroom

Encourage your teenaged students to read the real-life stories about students who experienced domestic abuse, either as a springboard to guidance discussions or for frank one-on-one talk. Discuss with your students, especially those who may be "at-risk," how someone could handle this situation where you live - who do they tell, where do they call and what should they do.
