DNA from the Beginning

Added 11/02/2011
This website is a great tool for teaching any type of DNA or genetics lesson. It has a collection of various simulations on DNA, genes and heredity.The site is organized into 3 major categories: molecules of genetics, classical genetics, and genetic organization and control. The science behind each concept is explained with animations, images, video interviews, problems, and biographies.

Human Brain Anatomy

Added 11/02/2011
This website would be helpful during a human nervous system unit (topics on brain and behaviors or brain and disorders). The site Includes interactive movies designed to help students become familiar with the different structures of the brain, along with their functions. The parts of the brain can be taken apart and built back together.


Added 11/02/2011
This website allows students to explore the different organelles of a cell. Students will learn how the organelles interact with each other to keep the cell alive. This site could be a great way for students to become familiar with all the individual organelles of a cell and what they specifically contribute to the running and proper function of the cell as a whole unit. Students can have a better idea of what the cell would be lacking if specific organelles didn't exist in a cell.

Mission: Biomes

Added 11/02/2011
This site provides descriptions of various biomes including the general characteristics and organisms found in the specific biomes. The site contains two interactive games as well to make the learning experience a fun experience. This could be a good reference site for a "create a biome" assignment where students have to describe all the factors of an assigned biome (environment, living organisms).


Added 11/02/2011
This is a great way to raise your students' aware to pollution and its impact on the environment. This website discusses various pollutants and environmental health risks in everyday life. There are animations that let students explore towns and environments and the pollutants that are present. This website could be incorporated in the pollution and environment unit/ pollution and plants unit to allow students to become familiar with how their everyday activities are creating pollution and what they can do to reduce.
