Bridge - Ocean Sciences Education Teacher Resource Center

Added 10/25/2013

This website has a lot of information on marine science in particular. However, this could be used in a Biology class because there are sections related to ecology and climate change. 


HippoCamus: Biology

Added 10/25/2013

A collection of videos from Khan academy as well as simulations from PhET. There's an interesting simulation that can be used for eating & exercise. 


SIMPLE-Science- Lessons

Added 10/25/2013

Has 4 or so Biology lessons that are online and interactive. Students can take temperatures virtually of different animals and learn about endothermic vs. ecothermic regulation.


6 Billion Human Beings

Added 10/25/2013

This website is really cool! I just helped a student answer a regents question today about population growth, and this site does a great job explaining it. The section where you put your age and it tells you how many people were around when you were born, in comparison to what it is now is a good way to make the idea of population growth relevant. 


Animal Eyes and Evolution

Added 10/25/2013

This website would be a great introduction to thinking about evolution or adaptation? How does an octopus' eye help it see under water? How do an owl's eyes help it see at night? In terms of evolution, how have eyes changed over time? What differences do we see? Questions like these could be explored.
