Sports history buffs will appreciate this very complete, but very all-text, chronology of achievements in women's sports from antiquity to the present. This is useful content, and it is interspersed with links to additional sites about some of the athletes mentioned.

tag(s): sports (97), women (101)

In the Classroom

Include this resource as a handout for students while working on a unit about the changing roles of women and the equal rights movement for the sexes. Although some of the information is more trivial than necessary, this would be an interesting way to show students how the involvement of women in sports evolved, matching their involvement or desired involvement in the political process. Because this includes several different countries, this would be a great way to lead into a discussion of how womens' rights varied among many countries.

The home page for the annual Iditarod sled dog race offers all manner of information on the race, the dogs, and the mushers. There's also information on the Junior Iditarod, and extensive information for teachers and students. This site is useful even during "non-race" seasons.

Here's an episode from the Scientific American Frontiers site that offers a look at how American young people eat and what their eating habits do to their bodies and futures. Users can view selected program clips, compute body mass (BMI), and learn lots of ways to improve their diets by changing what they eat. The BMI calculator opens in a pop-up window, so you need to turn off your pop-up blocker just for this site. See the Tools menu in Internet Explorer to do this.

tag(s): nutrition (154), obesity (19)

In the Classroom

Include this site as part of a research unit on healthy eating or make a simple web scavenger hunt for your students to learn the basic of how bodies metabolize food and create fat.

The National Cancer Institute now offers this venerable site as an encouragement to make fruits and vegetables a central part of the American diet. Though not designed specifically for students, the site includes complete resources - recipes, promotional ideas, local contact information, etc. - and could be useful for health and nutrition classes.

Band directors and high school music teachers will find everything for the marching band at this site. The concentration is on band competitions, but there's also a resources site offering products and services from uniforms to music arrangers and more. If your band competes, there's lots of up to date information here.

This site was developed for the 1996 Atlanta games, and updated in 2013. It offers some timeless information about the science behind the sports that is useful during any Olympic year! The WhyFiles presentation shows the hundreds of scientific connections to modern sports. There are eight main categories (for example, Ancient Olympics, Computers In Sports, and Sports Doctors: Athletic Ethics). Although this site isn't highly interactive, there are some explicitly detailed photographs and extensive information on all topics highlighted.

tag(s): olympics (47), sports (97)

In the Classroom

Why not do an eight day unit based on this website. Highlight a new category each day on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Or divide your students into small groups and assign each group one of the eight topics to explore. This site would tie into social studies, health, physical education, technology, and other subject areas.

Here's a site that lets kids read, write, and create based on their interest or experience in running. If you're a physical education teacher interested in making connections with the classroom, this is a site that could build bridges while letting students write about something they enjoy. Worth a visit!

Grouped by topic, some with grade levels.'? More than 50 different activities. The author points out that sometimes during heavy traffic, the server for this site shuts down for a two hour period becuase it is "overwhelmed." Check back another time. The site seems to have many visitors.

This site was created for scouts in Britain and offers a collection of indoor and outdoor games, activities, and other items that might prove useful for a PE teacher in search of something a bit different. The content is sometimes nested among other scouting stuff, but it can be worth the effort. These pages are a bit slow to load. Be Patient.

tag(s): acting (27)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of the free activities provided at this site! Examine the site before class, looking for games that would be appropriate for the age group and maturity of your students. A very useful site for same games that may be foreign to American children!

While not explicitly school related, this site's focus on sports leagues for young people includes lots of information that could be valuable for coaches, trainers, and amateur sports officials. It seems a natural, since many school coaches also work in other amateur leagues.
