This informative website offers teachers, students, and parents ideas about how to get fit and be healthy. The focus of the site is 1-2-3-4-5: 1 hour of physical activity, 2 hours (or less) of screen time (TV or computer), 3 meals a day, 4 or more glasses of water daily, and 5 servings of fruits and/or vegetables each day. There are also links to help you stay healthy during the holidays, contests, the Learning Center with several webcasts (with full screen options), and more! This site requires Adobe Acrobat and Flash. You can get both from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): obesity (19)

In the Classroom

Share the webcasts in your health and physical education classes using an interactive whiteboard or projector. Try some of the contests as a class. Challenge students to make one of the five suggested changes in the 1-2-3-4-5 project. Why not try one of the changes each month from January through May? Have students create a class wiki to keep track of their successes (and failures) during the challenge. At New Year's, this is a great site to share for resolutions!

This must-see site, created by Maryland Public Television, offers some excellent interactive activities and lesson plans all about environmental mysteries (asthma triggers, causes of cancer, food contamination, water borne illness, and others). An excellent addition to a science, health, or physical education class, this site discusses the importance of exercise, effects of mold, how food can get contaminated, and more. The site includes a link for Inside Stories that includes interactive stories about four environmental mysteries (all involving the fictional gym: Reps). The lesson plans include national standards in science, health, language arts, math, and working with others. Lesson ideas are geared for middle grades but could easily be adapted for early high school. They also have video "tie-ins," and lots of details. Some of the activities require Flash and Adobe Acrobat. You can get both from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

In the Classroom

Share the Inside Stories on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Or have students work with a partner to navigate the stories. Have students offer a solution at the end of the story. Check out the ready to go lesson plans. Have your students do research about environmental illnesses and create a wiki or blog discussing the causes and solutions. Have your students create video clips or podcasts about these and other environmental mysteries. Upload the videos to YouTube or TeacherTube (explained here).

Take anatomy and physiology to the next level with heart surgery! Students use a virtual "scalpel" and step-by-step assistance by a surgeon guiding the process to complete heart transplant surgery. In the virtual Nova operating theatre, students are walked through straightforward procedures. Obviously, in real life it is much different, but by the end students have a general idea of the procedures and steps involved. Assistance through the procedure provides directions and prevents mistakes in the procedure. Site requires shockwave plug-in which is available on the site. Many districts block others from installing programs on district computers. Check with your IT department for assistance in obtaining Shockwave, if you do not already have it (try it to see!). You can also get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): heart (43)

In the Classroom

Use information learned in dissection or an anatomy and physiology unit to use the material in a different way. Students can name and describe the functions of the parts of the heart as they perform the transplant. Identify the vessels and other connecting material leading from the heart. Use this activity to compare hearts with other animals for similarities and differences. Use it as part of a study of healthy exercise and the cardio-vascular system in your health/Phys Ed class.

View a "Tip of the Day," "Latest Articles," "Interesting Health Facts," and "Latest Health News." Click on the abstract of an article of your choice to read the entire article. Sources and References are included.

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

In the Classroom

Students can brainstorm health and nutrition concerns among their class and then work in groups to obtain information and dispel myths. Students can survey their class or school to obtain information on what students their age know. Have groups present information to the class learned through the survey and research on the site. Additionally, students can create a newsletter for the class, school, or community or publish information to a wiki or blog. Students can also create a goal for personal wellness and health. Their action plan can use relevant facts and information from this site. For example, students can research TV viewing habits, habits that can make a person fat, and identifying unhealthy food.

Have you been pining to include pertinent webquests in your curriculum? This site allows you to view already created webquests and/or use their online tool to create your own webquest without HTML code or web editor software. This site walks you through a tutorial on creating your own webquest for the parameters YOU want. The tutorial includes planning, building, and getting your webquest published. Best of all-- it is free. This site also includes ready-made webquests in nearly every subject area (math, art, music, social studies, science, etc.) submitted by others like you. There are webquests for all grade level. The webquests are free to use and many include reviews by other educators. An easy to follow webquest matrix is available, with all of the subjects and grade levels. You are also able to do a webquest search for a specific topic. Nearly all of the webquests are in English, but a few are in other languages. Note: the quality of webquests is completely determined by others using the site to create webquests, so PREVIEW before using any webquest in class.

tag(s): calories (9), colors (79), money (193), presidents (131), pyramids (29)

In the Classroom

Search the multitude of webquests that are "ready to go" at this site. If you are looking for a more personal touch, you can create your own webquest for each class, tailored to what you want to cover or want students to research. This site also provides a place to post a personal portfolio of your work (if you choose to include any student work, you must have written permission to do so from the student and his or her parent). You might also want students to create webquests as final products of group research projects. Be sure to provide a meaningful rubric for the essential features.

This is a colorful art education site that also speaks to non-art teachers. The site shares project ideas that incorporate self-expression. It also has lots of information about helping children learn to draw and paint. The site features a neat chart of the developmental stages of artistic output. In addition to art "projects," there are exercises to help children think more creatively and training exercises to look at things from multiple points of view and find unusual view of the everyday. There are also lesson plans, specific links and activities for kids and "Art Education 2.0" (for teachers who want to collaborate with other teachers). One project that's particularly appealing is "Community Stories." Schools share art projects and culture from around the world as they describe their schools and communities. Some of the activities require Adobe Acrobat. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): creativity (109), critical thinking (108)

In the Classroom

Find an art project to accompany your current unit or try the "Community Stories" link to reach out to communities you have learned about through the ESL students in your school or your world language studies.

TeachersFirst provides this collection of printable quotations, ready for your classroom or bulletin board. Inspire, engage, or challenge your students to think with quotes from famous leaders, sports figures, thinkers, and writers. This site requires Adobe Acrobat. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): bulletin boards (16), quotations (23)

In the Classroom

They look great printed on brightly colored paper! As an opening day activity, challenge small groups of students to interpret the quote hanging closest to them and predict how it may be important in your course this year. For younger students, ask them to write a paraphrase or to illustrate the quote. Be sure to change the quotes periodically and give a prize to the first student who notices. Or give a pop-quiz during the last week of school, asking students to recall as many of the year's quotes as they can (working in small groups will probably help). If you have classroom blogs, ask students to choose and reflect on a specific quote and its relevance to your class throughout the past year.

Encourage fitness for the digital natives, using a high-tech tool they will love! Log It is a site that encourages physical activity by allowing students to keep a record of the steps they walk each day. Other benefits include allowing them to participate in a virtual walk across the U.S. with other students, set up their own goals, or participate in class goals set up by the teacher. Both students themselves and their teachers can register their miles at school or from home! Though the site introducation mentions elementary and middle school students, it also says college classes and corporations are welcome to join, as well.

With this site, students become aware of their daily physical activity and also participate in group competitions within their classroom or participate in one of several competitions across the U.S. The site requires Flash. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): competitions (16)

In the Classroom

Teachers must register their school and their class first before students can participate. Be sure to get parent permission before allowing students to register and plan for the logistics of letting students enter their miles. Help your students register and set individual or classroom goals. Make it a competition with the homeroom next door or throughout your school. Be sure to put this link and log-in information on your teacher web page for students, parents, and others to access outside of class.

Divided into parts for parents, younger children, and teenagers, Kid's Health presents health issues in an attractive, frank, and appealing format. The younger kid's section features a daily health question, homework help, a "Big Question" section, hot topics, and health concerns presented from the point of view of the child. In addition, some of the pages are available in Spanish. Other sections include health issues for grown ups and a glossary, the latter of which is available in Spanish. Video clips include health-related topics featuring well-known athletes. The teen section provides answers to multiple teen questions about health including sexual issues, drug and alcohol concerns, food and fitness, your body, your mind, and hot topics. The parents' section has regular health topics about raising a child. Requires Flash.

tag(s): body systems (57), emotions (35)

In the Classroom

Health teachers will want to share this site on their teacher web page or in class as part of sex ed units and study of disease. Younger students wondering about illnesses such as cancer will also be able to find good information, written at a level they can understand.

This site contains open discussion of topics. We suggest that you preview it to be sure it is in compliance with your school's policies. Some portions discuss topics that will cause great giggles among less mature students, so preview and set the tone before trungin students loose.

Are you teaching plays that include fencing? Are you students completely unaware of what fencing entails? If you want to teach the basics of fencing to students, even if you only want to let them know how difficult it is, this is a good site with a lesson plan. It offers direct objectives in 7 75-minute classes (which could be adapted to shorter time periods). You should have access to the 3 different types of fencing equipment (foil, ?p?e, and sabre)and some expertise (or access to some expertise!) in the art. But vastly fascinating for students!

In the Classroom

The lessons are sound and basic. The 3 "further information" links at the bottom of the page no longer work, but it should not be difficult to find similar working URLs on the net for fencing in theater and the movies.

Soccer - what the rest of the world calls football - is truly the world's sport, so the World Cup is big news internationally. It's also a great time to link sport and world cultures. This site from the host country, Germany, offers games to play, background on the host country, and a sampling of the action from a German perspective.

tag(s): german (64)

In the Classroom

If in need of a fun game during a lesson on International sports OR more information about Germany, be sure to check this site out. For the former there is an interactive game, "dribble king," that students could play on classroom computers. For the latter, there is ample information about German industries, business, soccer culture, and even travel destinations. Though its a bit text heavy, this could be great brush-up material for teachers before teaching a lesson on some aspect of German culture. Foreign language teachers could incorporate this into student research projects or during a lesson discussing vocabulary centered around sports.

The site calculates the mileage, lets you print out the map with the route marked, or even add it to an online database of walk/run routes all over the U.S. Then place links to your recommended routes on your teacher or school web site. Get students and parents involved in fitness with their families. You can also look up routes in your area already registered by other fitness enthusiasts. Maybe even create an all-school walk/run event!
