Cells Alive!

Added 10/27/2013

This website can be used for teaching topics in cell biology, microbiology, immunology and microscopy from living environment. It will be especially helpful for visual learners because of the animations and the cell models. Teachers can also implement the worksheets and quizzes from the website in her lessons. The puzzles can also be fun activities for the class to engage in while learning about the cells.


Biological animations and tutorials

Added 10/27/2013

This website is very useful for a biology teacher because it contains a lot of animations, tutorials and quizzes on various topics in biology. What I also like about this website is that it has a step-through option for the animation videos, which has written written text next to the animations, which can be helpful for the students as they walked through some of the topics with multiple steps. The teacher can also use these texts in her lessons to help the students understand the material better.


Interactive Simulations for General Chemistry

Added 10/27/2013

This website is a useful site to teach General Chemistry and covers multiple topics. Some of the materials from this site can be used as summarizing handouts for the chapters and to review the lessons after the teacher has gone over the topic. The short and concise way it describes certain areas will make it easier for some students to comprehend seemingly complex chapters in chemistry.


Chembalancer - balancing equations game

Added 10/27/2013

This website can be very helpful and can be used as an engaging activity for the students who are learning how to balance equations for the first time in Chemistry class. I also like that they make it possible to grade the students by having a worksheet available so the teacher have an option to make this activity as a quiz or a homework assignment.


Contemporary Chemistry Multimedia Module

Added 10/27/2013

This is a really resourceful website for Chemistry. It has a lot of interactive animations on various topics in general chemistry as well as multiple choice and essay questions for students to practice on. I also like that there is an organized set of glossary and summary for each chapter for the students to study. This site could definitely be very useful for an exam review.
