Save the World is an interactive that has you focus on alternative energies to fuel the planet. Based on the premise that fossil fuel stores are dwindling, you are forced to examine options to current energy sources, and in a game are challenged to create enough alternative energy to fuel the region that you have chosen to help. Included in this game are links to pop ups that explain the whys and hows of alternative energy. The graphics are interesting and engaging for younger users.

tag(s): energy (210), environment (321), natural resources (58), solar energy (40)

In the Classroom

Try implementing this activity as part of your lessons about alternative energy resources and non renewable resources. Have students read the "about the science" pop up to better understand the technologies of alternative energy sources, or to review what you have already taught the students. Then have them try this interactiv. You can have students do a "free play" where they pick the area and just play to see how much energy they can produce. Or, set up a class challenge, having all the students use the same region and then see who can create the most energy the fastest in the class.

Defenders of Wildlife is chalk full of useful, current information about wildlife conservation, threats to the natural environment, and fact sheets about specific species of animals, as well as much more! Explaining concepts such as climate change, off-shore drilling and renewable energy this site is an invaluable environmental resource. Plus, all information comes with interesting photos and an easy to navigate menu of further information.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): animals (319), conservation (123), endangered species (40), environment (321)

In the Classroom

This would be an excellent resource for an environmental science class. Add to online course sites as an alternative to textbooks. Create assignments where students are directed to this site to read for understanding of the topics that are being discussed. For students in more advanced environmental studies, the section on Policy and Legislation is great. It is far more understandable than reading through the actual laws and policies. Have students read the website information on a specific policy or law, and then have the students find the actual law to "check up" on the site. This will encourage students to make comparisons between the reading that they could easily understand and the more complicated language of the actual laws. This simple exercise could be incorporated in an English or reading comprehension classroom or a science classroom (what a great way to do a little cross curricular teaching!). Students will learn to read more analytically in the process!

This site offers a history of Groundhog Day along with a year by year recap of the groundhog's forecast. It is divided into sections for easier viewing, sections include origins of Groundhog Day, information on the movie of the same title, along with the history and a list of each year's shadow observations. Although very simple, this site is worth a visit to gather facts and information about the Groundhog Day observance.

tag(s): holidays (137), weather (202)

In the Classroom

Share information and facts from the site with students on Groundhog Day. Punxsutawney Phil's forecast has only been accurate 39% of the time according to this site, share this fact with students and have them research how this percentage would change if there had more or less correct observances. Have students research weather conditions in your city for the same dates and compare that to see how it could have worked out if Phil were from your hometown.

MrNussbaum.com was developed with the idea that crucial concepts, themes, ideas, and fact sets taught in the classroom can be enhanced over the internet through interactivity. Furthermore, for teachers to have a reliable k -8 internet site to use in the computer lab or in the classroom, that likely covers one or many themes currently being taught. The Science portion of the site is mainly devoted to information about animals; however, there are also portions on space, biomes, and the periodic table. The animal section is divided into portions by animal such as penguins, birds, sharks, insects, mammals and more. After clicking the link there are several activities matching games, scavenger hunts, anatomy, and other themed activities.

Promote environmental citizenship through this site's "green learning" units. The curriculum ranges from examining how electricity works, understanding the balance of ecosystems, to a high school unit on sustainable futures. Enjoy the interactive wind turbine and carbon calculator. The animation for grades 4 - 7 is engaging, and the video presentations for high school students on sustainability is powerful. Green Learning provides educators with an array of hands-on activities, online learning opportunities, printable materials, assessment tools, and valuable resources such as environmental experts to contact. Each environmental concept taught provides opportunities for real world learning, encourages social action, and advocacy. Teacher friendly planning tools can help meet instructional time constraints, students learning styles, and promote cross-curricular connections. The site is free but requires registration. Membership provides access to additional educational materials and a monthly newsletter. This program comes to us from Canada.

The e-Card project series invites students to research a topic, write a persuasive letter to an individual they believe makes decisions that effect environment, then design and create an e-Card. Have your students share their work on the e-Cards website and view what other students have created.

There is a range of lessons and activities here, some more complex than others. You may want to choose a few that fit your curricular needs and then allow small groups of students to investigate one together. Have student groups make an online Stixy (reviewed here) of things they discover about their topic, and later rearrange the items to "explain" their topic to classmates visually.

Find one minute listening exercises on such common activities as babysitting, chickens, and exercise. The listening selections are alphabetized with several selections for each letter of the alphabet. Each listening selection has a multitude of activities you can download (along with the reading text) in Word and pdf formats. Find Cloze paragraphs, fill in the blanks, words to unscramble, and much more. Many activities can also be viewed online. Each selection has two interactive quizzes. Though targeted for the ESL/ELL student, listening is one of the language arts standards, and this is a good way for any classroom teacher to address listening skills.

Use the selections and activities with individual students as an assignment or independent practice on your classroom computer. The reading and activities are easy to work on independently because of the listening feature. Don't forget to provide headsets. Small groups of students can listen at one of several literacy stations in your classroom. Provide this link for the families of ESL/ELL students to read (or listen) to the selections together. Learning support teachers will also appreciate the option to provide audio and text together to improve student comprehension.
