This dandy idea is a clear and concise weekly program to enhance general physical fitness through push-ups. Reading the site is easy; however, beware of some agitating advertisements sprinkled through-out the pages of this site. This would be great for health teachers, physical education teachers, and even school wide health initiatives or challenges. Included on this website are links for two hundred squats, twenty five sit-ups, and twenty-five pull ups. If push-ups are the place you want to start, or if you would like to offer a choice in fitness challenges, these links are worth checking out as alternatives for the teacher running the class or the students' choice. The important thing is to motivate their health with the technology that they already enjoy.

tag(s): human body (93)

In the Classroom

Introduce this program as part of a journal activity in health class. Have students do the initial test in class and then the first workout together. Have students read the introductory how and why pages. Have students check in on each other for form and honesty purposes, and record their workouts, thoughts, and experiences throughout the challenge weeks. Why not create a class workout wiki. Not comfortable with wikis? Have no wiki worries - check out the TeachersFirst's Wiki Walk-Through. Do the final test at the end. Fitness prizes such as free passes to the community or school pool or free passes to school athletic events may be a good idea if you can get your district involved on that level. It is worth a try! Districts that are currently pushing for wellness and physical fitness of students and staff should embrace this type of challenge. So to even the playing field for different levels of fitness that students start at, have the "winners" be the biggest percent gain.

This European site features nutrition information in interactive format for two age groups: Kidz (ages 6-12) and ADOZ (ages 13-19). The KIDZ area features topics such as "Brain Food," "Nutrition Quiz," "Body Fit," "Safe Food," and "What's a Label?" The ADOZ section delves deeper into the same topics and more, including "Emotions and Eating" and "Food Myths." The nutrition information included in the site is from EUFIC but closely parallels comparable literature from the USDA and other US agencies. There is a "School and Parents" section with teacher's guides and background information about the site. You may want to turn down your speakers to avoid the intro music in each area. If you have speakers of European languages other than English, return to the coolfood home to select a different "flag" for another language.

tag(s): nutrition (132), obesity (11)

In the Classroom

Share the interactive quizzes and activities on an interactive whiteboard or projector to spark interest and assess prior knowledge at the start of your nutrition unit. Have student groups investigate food myths, facts, and more, then create their own online "Infoodmation" posters using a tool such as Easel.ly, reviewed here. Or have students create visual menus for balanced eating on a class wiki. Not comfortable with wikis? Have no wiki worries - check out the TeachersFirst's Wiki Walk-Through.

What is Watch Know? Short for "You Watch, You Know," it provides explanations for students. Finding bits of information to help students can be frustrating as resources are disorganized on the web and may be hard to find." Watch Know" is a free site that organizes small video clips to help with the understanding of a variety of topics in subject areas. Search by age (3-18+). You can click and drag the age filter to the youngest and oldest ages to include. Videos are also organized by sequence of topics taught. The site is an ongoing project with input from educators and organizations interested in education of children. Registration is not required to view the videos. Creating and saving videos to the site, as well as commenting, require registration. You can monitor site recent changes and additions using the "Change Log."

tag(s): computers (100), crafts (41), decimals (89), environment (220), ethics (23), fractions (163), holidays (122), scientific method (47), video (242), vocabulary development (86), writing (283)

In the Classroom

Search for videos relevant to your upcoming units or share the link with older students to search on their own. Use clips as engaging openings to units or as a review at the end. Have students identify the main points in the video and relate it back to class information. Students can use the examples on the site to create their own videos about a topic they have studied that could be beneficial to others.

If you do join the site to submit videos (for more adventurous technology users), we recommend uploading, commenting, and participating in the project (the creation and growth of WatchKnow) as a whole-class collaborative activity. If your students create videos, critique them locally before submitting them to the site as the "bests" from your class.

This website offers a one-stop destination to all of your Olympic information. There are links across the top to learn about the athletes, sports, countries, and even a media player offering video clips and more. At the time of this review the media player had over 1,000 videos and nearly 10,000 photographs! This is an excellent site for research about the Olympics (both summer and winter). There is also a link to go back and learn about the past 46 Olympic games. Although there are no "student" or "classroom" links, this site truly has something for everyone: maps and geography, science behind the sports, research about events and countries, athete information, and more.

tag(s): olympics (41)

In the Classroom

The possibilities at this website are endless. Use your interactive whiteboard or projector to share the MANY videos, information about the athletes, and many other activities. Use the site for research purposes about specific athletes or sports. Have students create multimedia presentations about events, athletes, or countries using this site. Create a class Olympics Wiki!

This creative lesson plan challenges students to participate in their own version of the Olympics. Students choose which activities they want to "try their hand at" and are required to keep score. Some of the classroom Olympic "sports" include Speedy Spelling, Tongue-Twister Tournament, The Math Meet, and several others. The lesson plan includes descriptions of all sports and standards. This site was last updated in 2008, but the activities are applicable during any year.

tag(s): measurement (131), olympics (41), sports (82), statistics (108)

In the Classroom

Bring the Olympics into your classroom. Share these "ready to go" sports with your students. Then have students try to invent their own Olympic games to share with the class. Why not video and share the Olympics using a site such as TeacherTube, reviewed here.

Dating back to the 1950's, The President's Challenge is a motivating program that promotes physical activity to all Americans. Students take a pledge to do 30 minutes of activity, five times per week for six weeks. The website provides a log for students to record their activity and length of time. Once they have completed their six week challenge, they can submit their logs and earn rewards such as bronze, silver and gold medals and The President's Challenge badges. The site also provides a list of activities to choose from and information on the importance of physical fitness. Although the site mentions "Log-In," at the time of this review all features of the site were available without having to log-in.

tag(s): fitness (49)

In the Classroom

Challenge your individual classroom, school, or entire district to try The President's Challenge. Have younger students partner with older students to create a team affect. Classroom competitions such as jump rope contests, push-ups contests or silly relays can be loads of fun. Maintain statistics and results on the classroom homepage or district wide homepage. Students can record and maintain data on spreadsheets and present their findings with bar graphs and pictographs. Create a "Get Fit Wik" - a wiki for students to write about their weekly activities. Not familiar with wikis? Check out the TeachersFirst's Wiki Walk-Through. Provide this link on your class website for families to explore together.

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.

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 (90), critical thinking (100)

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.

tag(s): bulletin boards (15), quotations (20)

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.

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!

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.
