The JASON Project is an excellent site to use a model for elementary preservice
teachers in a science methods course. The previous Jason Projects (e.g.,
Rainforest Adventures; Journey to the Center of the Earth) are ready to use
models or examples for preservice teachers, while the active or future projects
allow for interaction and participation of students. The projects models
developing fun and educational activities based on the National Educational
Standards. Examples of the National Educational Standards that the JASON
Projects include:

1. Science as Inquiry: Content Standard A
a. Students should learn about scientific inquiry and develop the abilities
needed to perform it.

2. Life Science: Content Standard C
a. Students should develop an understanding about the structure and function of
living systems, reproduction and heredity, regulation and behavior, populations
and ecosystems, and the diversity and adaptations of organisms.

In addition, the JASON Project curricula are aligned with the National Education
Standards in Science, Geography, English, and Technology, as well as with state
educations standards.

Technical Remarks:

It is easy to move throughout the site. Several plug-ins are required to run
movies, etc.
