Who better to offer an online periodic table than the American Chemical Society? Theirs is shockwave enhanced and offers links to a full complement of background information and resources on each element. There's a wealth of information in this one, and this more than makes up for a less-than-perfect shockwave implementation.

Oxford University's online chemistry offerings include this collection of "virtual experiments" in a number of areas, along with a complete online "pre-university chemistry course." While the entire collection may be more than most secondary teachers can use, the individual components - with lots of animations and video - are well worth a look, especially if your laboratory resources are limited.

High school chemistry teachers, especially those teaching AP students, may find MIT's online course materials useful. MIT has committed to putting its entire curriculum on the web, and these early offerings include syllabi, reading materials, and a variety of subject-specific class notes. Before using these pages, teachers, students, and parents should all be aware of what Open Courseware is and is not.

This sizable collection of animations for undergraduate chemistry includes Quicktime, Shockwave, and animate GIF images. The utility of these for secondary classrooms will depend on your local curriculum, but the collection is extensive enough that it's worth a look if you're trying to find an illustration for a concept or principle.

Here's a collection of science lesson plans covering disciplines from geology to earth science, chemistry, and general science. Each includes complete procedures, standards references, and discussion. Some of these lessons use video clips as an integral component, so teachers will want to plan accordingly.

tag(s): dna (64), evolution (102), genetics (87)

In the Classroom

The lesson plans here are excellent! Choose from many lessons (levels 4-12) to use in class to save you time. All lessons have a summary explaining what you and students will encounter with that lesson. Some example titles are The Ladder of Life where through video and Web-based activities, the students will develop a greater understanding of what DNA does in a cell. Students will be able to assemble DNA parts in order to simulate DNA strands. They will also have the opportunity to experimentally view DNA through an extraction technique included in the lesson. Another is Evolution: Its Effect Throughout Geological Time and the Controversy where students review the basics of Charles Darwin's Theory of Evolution. They use the World Wide Web to explore the various stages of evolution, over geological time, and learn how each organism fits into the evolutionary story. These are just two representatives of how the many lessons are presented.

This site offers an introduction to three areas of bioology: cells, chemistry, and ecology, along with a set of study materials. Though the concepts are "real science," the language is approachable and interesting enough to keep students engaged. This site is well worth a look for use as either a self-study or a resource to accompany an introduction to biology. Part of the Kapili.com collection.

tag(s): cells (99), ecology (133)

In the Classroom

This site will compliment your study of cells. Use it as an introduction or review. Share this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Have students explore this site independently or in pairs. If used independently put the site on a classroom computer and use as a center. To use in pairs, bring students to the lab or use a classroom set of laptops. This site would also be a good one to add to your class webpage or blog for use at home. Have students create a simple infographic sharing their findings using Visme, reviewed here.

What a find! Chem4 Kids contains six sections ranging from Matter, to Math in Chemistry, and Chemical Reactions. Information on each topic is presented clearly. Hyperlinks are included to assist students in understanding terms.

tag(s): atoms (54), chemicals (45), elements (35), matter (61), periodic table (51)

In the Classroom

The explanations are clear and concise and the examples are everyday items. Students should create their own flashcards or work together as partners or in small groups to create flashcards for each section. Each topic and term has what looks like hand-drawn images for examples. Where possible challenge students to draw their own examples. Students could use Padlet, reviewed here, to brainstorm a list of examples (images) to replace the ones Chem4kids has for their flashcards. Next, have students create the drawings using Doodle.ly, reviewed here. Have students save their drawing(s) to their computer, or if you are cloud based save it there, to add to student made flashcards. Use a flashcard tool such as Study Droid, reviewed here. Study Droid allows you to use rich text (web page language), images and more! Asking students to think about replacing the image examples used on Chem4kids will help them to understand the topic, and drawing their own replacement examples will help them remember the information.

MIT's contribution to the numerous on-line periodic tables.

tag(s): periodic table (51)

In the Classroom

Save this site as a favorite on classroom computers to allow students to use MIT's periodic table as help with studying, worksheets, and review. What is great about this periodic table is that it provides additional information and images on all the elements, which can be accessed merely by clicking on them. A very useful site for any chemistry class!

Here's a site which offers answers to imponderables such as, "Why is the ocean blue?" The site offers numerous articles of interest. You can join (for a fee), but the articles are available for free. The site is published by the British periodical New Science.
This site includes advertising.

In the Classroom

Share the site on an interactive whiteboard or projector, and use it as a springboard for an ethics discussion during science class. Though there are a wide array of articles, some capture and illustrate arguments over the debate of stem cell research, Pluto's classification, and climate change. At the end of a unit, open one of these articles and use the real-world information provided to spark a classroom debate. Students can use the knowledge they have gained, in addition to seeing its practical application. This is a very useful site for science enrichment!
