Science Review Games
How about a fun way to review for science tests (physics, nature of science, meteorology, living environment, geology, earth science, chemistry, biology, and astronomy)? This site has it all. Teachers can also create their own games on the site for their students.
Welcome to Connecting Concepts: Interactive Lessons in Biology, a series of interactive web-based lessons designed to give introductory undergraduate biology students opportunities to connect biology concepts. Click on any lesson below to begin, or navigate using the links above to find out more about the project.
Sky and Telescope
News, observing tips, how-to advice, and more! Excellent resource, but no lesson plans.
Organisms and their Environments (K-4)
Fun site for grades K-8. Could also be used for ELLs at the high school level in SDAIE classes. Site is easy to navigate and provides positive feedback as student attempts to navigate the lesson/activity.
If getting kids to love science is your goal, this is your site. Here you can build a solar system, find your age on other worlds, see the human body from the inside, calculate the aerodynamic drag and propulsive power of a bicyclist, etc. You will find hours of activities here that will fascinate your students.
The American Museum of Natural History. Pick a science that interests you and explore. Students of all ages will truly enjoy any time they spend here.
Science Kids Here students of all grade levels will learn about science through fun experiments, cool facts, online activities, videos, and much more. I enjoyed the videos the most because they were well done and easy for my students to follow. The games were interesting also in that academic was covered in a format that kept my students on task and loving every minute of it.
Agriculture and Kids Even if your students are not formally studying agriculture, this site could still be incorporated into a general science class. The site addresses animals, plants, nutrients, and just about anything else related to agriculture. Amazing photos also!
ScienceNews for Kids Archive covers everything from agriculture to weather. You will also find a SCIFI zone which was a first for me. I am quite please that scientists are now seriously entertaining exobiology themes. Of course, you will also find puzzles, online games, lab experiments, and more.
Biology Topics I have never seen such an extensive collection of biology topics in one website … and they are all active links. Their site on evolution was incredible.
Dragonfly Inquiry based learning for children. “Our primary mission is to provide a national voice for young investigators and the opportunity for them to interact with experienced researchers.”
Chemistry for Kids Excellent resource for K-12 resources, essentials, activities, lessons, quizzes.
Creative Chemistry This is a British based site, and as such, makes reference to their high stakes tests occasionally, but everything else would work for us—fun chemistry puzzles, interactive revision quizzes, and molecular models. What is there not to enjoy!
Are your students studying life science, biology, environmental science, etc.? If so, you may enjoy this site. It is an ongoing expedition in the Arctic.
Powered by the number 1 non-fiction media brand in the world, Discovery Education transforms classrooms and inspires teachers with engaging content and services that measure and improve student achievement.
Biology in Motion
Welcome to Biology In Motion. Original and entertaining biology animations and interactive activities, available for free on the Web.
The Astronomy Net
“The Astronomy Net contains articles, forums, clubs, vendors, manufacturers and other resources important to those interested in Astronomy.
NASA Space Place for Kids This NASA site should inspire many kids to want to think about becoming space explorers! It is also in Spanish. You will find GAMES, PROJECTS, ANIMATIONS, COOL SUBJECTS, AMAZING FACTS and FRIENDS SHARE (lots of information on community groups and what they are doing to prepare for space exploration).
N.A.S.A. (for kids of all ages)
NASA offers a wealth of information on everything space related. Even the non-astronomer will find poking around the site irresistible. The student site has videos with closed captioning. Closed captioning is a must for ELLs. ELLs need the language support.
N.A.S.A. (for educators)
NASA offers a wealth of information on everything space related. Even the non-astronomer will find poking around the site irresistible.
ePals Global Community
Water Classroom project for a science lesson. In addition, ePals is a free email account for your class. THIS is a reason to write for kids. It will also make the world a smaller friendlier place.
Science games in a virtual world. Originally developed to get girls interested in science.
Cool Science In his site, questions of all kinds are addressed (students are encouraged to write to scientists for information on topics of interest to them). Cutting edge topics are covered here for high school and college. Science teachers are provided with the latest data in their specific areas of expertise. Students are actively encouraged to think like a scientist in the hopes that one day they might just decide to pursue a career in one of the sciences.
Physics This link is a resource for students enrolled in physics classes or just interested in it. From this link, you can jump to many other sites related to physics.
Physics Forum This is another physics site which offers a physics forum where students may pose questions they have on I area of physics. All areas of physics are addressed here in a student friendly format.
Chemistry If you have ELLs in your classrooms, you will definitely want to bookmark this site since you can translate everything on it in anyone of close to 20 languages.
Chemistry Through Song Have you ever heard of teaching chemistry through songs? Check out this link (one of many on this site) and enjoy the experience!
