Want to change your eating habits for the better? This free site offers a way to track your eating habits (and exercise) through the web, mobile device, and even email. Images can also be uploaded (for better accountability.) This site does not focus on counting calories but on assessing progress towards goals and using slider bars to indicate how well goals are being met. Use your friend to motivate you in reaching your goals. Sharing is optional and settings can be maintained for privacy. Enter your settings and use your log to keep track of progress daily. Describe the foods you eat and use the sliders to choose between "none" and "lots" on the items you are trying to reduce and the ones you are trying to increase!

tag(s): eating disorders (7), food chains (22), human body (120), myplate (28), nutrition (154), obesity (19)

In the Classroom

Use this tool in place of keeping a food diary and counting calories, especially during a unit on nutrition or health. Have students create goals that they can monitor. Use privacy setting to include buddies within the classroom to encourage each other. Create classroom challenges that can be extended into family challenges. Teach digital citizenship by learning to encourage and to make constructive comments in and off this site.

Anatronica is a 3D anatomy tool. Learn about the skeletal system, muscular system, respiratory system, nervous system, and several other systems of the human body. Mobile apps are available and the site is also viewable through PC or Mac. Click on "Free" to access the tool online. The site does require the Unity3D plugin, available for free at the site. Once loaded, navigation tools to move through the systems and views are self-explanatory. Data on anatomy objects are provided, and there is also a quiz function. It is worth the effort to install the 3D plugin to be able to use this site!
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): body systems (57), human body (120)

In the Classroom

Use this tool in health or biology class hen discussing anatomy and physiology of humans or any other creature being dissected as a comparison. Even younger students can grasp the systems of the human body when you share this on a projector or whiteboard and show the same part of the body ( head, arm, etc) through the lens of different body systems. To avoid the hassle of downloading the plug-in on all class computers, share the site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Have student groups give "travel tours" of their assigned body system to the class. Provide this link for students to use/explore at home. If your school computers are locked down, preventing you from loading plug-ins, this one is worth requesting and pestering your tech department.

Comments

This is the go-to site for Promethean flipchart downloads. Most files were created by teachers. The only downside is that the files are hit-or-miss. There are many gems, but you might have to browse some not-so-great files to find them. Tim, , Grades: 0 - 6

Although the blog was originally created in 2008, many of the activities and sites have been updated. Find word games sorted by event and grade level (such as Summer Olympic Swimming for grades 1 and 2). Many of the lesson plans include national math standards. Some great research ideas are also offered, such as exploring the Olympics through time.

This site has strong content focused on the historical importance of the Negro Leagues Baseball teams. It also has a very rich assortment of lesson plans for teaching about the Negro Leagues. There is an introductory video for a good overview of the Leagues themselves, the offerings of the NLB Museum, and a searchable archive of photographs and multimedia resources that can be used either in conjunction with the lesson plans (which include national standards benchmarks), or independently.

tag(s): baseball (36), black history (59), civil rights (117), sports (96)

In the Classroom

This is a great resource for "hooking" students who are interested in sports into the study of the Civil Rights Movement or modern US History. Consider including the resources here in your recognition of Black History Month as well. Share the introductory video on your projector or interactive whiteboard. Challenge cooperative learning groups to explore a specific part of this site and create an online poster on paper or do it together as a class using a tool such as Web Poster Wizard (reviewed here) or PicLits (reviewed here.

Other options on the site allows you to save items as favorites, follow other users, save searches, and upload materials.

Type in an address and determine the walkability of any location. A map of the address entered displays nearby restaurants, coffee shops, and more that are within one mile of that location. The list can be personalized by choosing the Other Amenities tab and choosing more. Many, but not all, addresses will also display a walk score rating demonstrating how walkable that area is with a score from 0-100. What a fun way to workout "around the town." More "green" communities often have a better walkability score.

In the Classroom

Use this site as part of a school-wide physical fitness program to determine places that students can walk to instead of driving. Have students use their home address to determine walkability and locate destinations nearby. Physical Education teachers may want to use this site to demonstrate easy ways students can improve fitness by walking to nearby locations. Compare different communities around the country for walkability. Have student groups research to discover the fitness level of these communities and/or the importance of environmental concerns to the citizens there. For a big challenge, have student create an infographic that shows the relationship between walkability and health or pollution data. Or have them design a "dream" walkable neighborhood to practice map skills. Share this link on your website for families to view together.

FIT by WebMD is a great website to promote health and healthy opportunities for students of all ages. This is a health/fitness site that is designed for three different stages of childhood: Fit Jr. (PreK- elementary) , Fit Kids (upper elementary and middle school) , and Fit Teen (secondary). Explore four different areas of health: Food, Move, Recharge, and Mood. The site offers a far healthier approach to fitness than simply weight. Highlights include an age appropriate body mass index calculator, video clips, audio books, recipes, interactive challenges, age-appropriate articles, and more. There are also quizzes and many ways to earn FitQ points. There is an entire Parents area so everyone can be involved together.

A free registration process allows kids and teens to track personal accomplishments. Email is required ONLY for teen accounts, not "kids." The registration information required is minimal and is legally appropriate for the age level.

tag(s): cooking (34), fitness (49), heart (42), myplate (28), obesity (19)

In the Classroom

Check school policy on setting up student accounts or work together with parents on this. Parents (or teachers) can use the Fit Jr. with younger students. Read the audio books together, try the interactives, and read the articles together. The Fit Kids portion of this website would be great for fifth and sixth grade physical education or health classes. Set up a classroom challenge for students to gain at least 30,000 fit points per week for four weeks. Include families for greater success. Have students track and monitor their progress over that time with the site. Tracking their own progress will be educational and fun! Keep a class "Workout Wiki" that can serve as a meeting place and neutral location to store exercise goals and nutritional changes. Maybe even include a recipe area for fit foods.

"Lose It!" is a comprehensive calorie counting and activity tracking tool; this website provides a free way to monitor calorie intake and output to lose, maintain, or manage health and weight. With great graphics and an available phone application, this tool is so versatile and easy that even younger students could learn to use it. The database of food includes restaurant, grocery, and generic food brands and types.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): calories (9), DAT device agnostic tool (196), fitness (49), nutrition (154), obesity (19), social networking (112)

In the Classroom

Try using "Lose It!" in health classes as early as fifth grade to help students become aware of how they spend their calories in a day and just how much they are consuming. Sometimes just this awareness is enough to help some kids stay healthier. Have students do a baseline record what they eat and do with no set rules for three days to a week. Have students analyze with their free weekly reports: what they consumed, how much, and what vitamins and other nutrients that they may need to increase. If students are comfortable sharing information with each other, have them compare reports to get a better and more realistic view of their intake. Have students create a plan to make small changes to diet and activity for a week at a time and then have them check their reports again. This could be a year long, month long, or two week long process. Depending on the incidence of childhood obesity or malnutrition in your area, you can adjust this to fit your needs. If you are concerned about student privacy, create an account for a fictitious person that the entire class can use to analyze hypothetical food intake and more.

World Music for Children, though a commercial site, shares some simple treasures of music: song lyrics, audio files, and music-related craft projects to engage children with music at school or at home. Steer clear of the items for sale, and you will find songs to play for Martin Luther King Day, Hispanic Heritage Month, Native American Heritage month, Cinco de Mayo and more. This review directs you to the Teacher section where you can also find directions and photos to make simple percussion instruments from all over the world. The site is simple, but the options for making music are many. PDF files of song lyrics are available.
This site includes advertising.

In the Classroom

Turn up your speakers and try the limbo. Make simple instruments as part of your cultural heritage celebrations. Record your class singing one of the simple songs using a simple tool such as PodoMatic (reviewed here ) or your computer's own recording software; then share the link to the recording on your class web page for younger students to sing along at home. During units on sound in elementary science class, make some of the instruments to explore how sound is created and transmitted. PE teachers can teach lessons using the song/dance options, such as the limbo. World language classes and world cultures classes may even find some of the ethnic instruments from other parts of the world interesting, despite the more juvenile appearance of this site.
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.

Watch hundreds of animated explanations, tutorials, and videos on a variety of questions. Learn about the myth of Santa, the flu, migraines, history of football, how to avoid stomach aches, what is Twitter, and other topics. General subjects include Health, Sports, Software, Work, Technology, and Companies (advertising.) This site is designed for secondary students (and adults). However, many of the topics would be relevant with older elementary students (for example, "How to Avoid Stomach Aches"). Be sure to peruse and preview before sharing the video in an elementary classroom.

Embed the videos easily into your blog, wiki, or site for use with students. This site does allow users to submit their own videos, but this appears to be for a fee and mainly for businesses looking to advertise or promote a service.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): advertising (33), animation (63), myths and legends (25), sports (96), twitter (50), video (253)

In the Classroom

Share these short videos on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Find videos related to the content you are teaching. For example, the "What is the flu?" animation gives a great amount of information about colds and flu. Begin your lesson by asking students common statements or questions about what they understand about the cold or the flu. Show the results on a board and then share the video. (Embedding it in a site that you already have is a really great idea.) Identify the actual information to counter the common misconceptions. Find great animations related to technology and using computer and Web 2.0 tools. Divide students into cooperative learning groups to explore the site. Have them report information learned to the others. Challenge groups to create an animated explanation using one of the many TeachersFirst Edge animation tools here.

Sqworl is a site for combining multiple links into one single link. Registration is required; however, it is very easy. You create a username and password, add your email and it is done. After registering, a personal homepage is created, this is where the magic can begin! The homepage is where groups will be created to combine url's. Then adding some groups of link begins the process of creating groups. At this point a title is given to the group being created (examples might be Math sites, American History, etc.). The final step is to add a short description. After choosing start, simply copy and paste the url you want to use and add a short description and click finish. Once a group is created, it can be shared through the url shown on the page. Sqworl also has a bookmarklet that can be added to the browser toolbar making it easier to add items to your groups without having to open the homepage. There is also a mobile app for iPhone.
