From: AprilMask@aol.com Date: Tue, 22 Jun 1999 10:20:34 EDT Subject: 6/21 HK To: j-levin@uiuc.edu Exemplary sites for my students: 1) http://education.nasa.gov/students.html There are 6 links here that all look like excellent sources for my students depending on the goal. Also http://www.nasa.gov/hqpao/hqpao_home.html/ Scroll to the bottom of the page. There are pictures at the bottom like Earth Observatory. As you link to each of these sites there are great resources for kids! 2) http://www.logal.net/a/owa/page?p=index I hate to be redundant but this web site is both equally useful for the teacher as it is for the student. 3) http://www.nationalgeographic.com/xpeditions/main.html This is a virtual tour of a science museum. Very cool for the students to view. 4) http://powayusd.sdcoe.k12.ca.us/mtr/PlanetEarthMainPage.htm If you scroll down to lead in activities and click on any of the links, there are activities and lessons for the students that are excellent!!! 5)http://www.globe.gov Below is the description of globe. This is a great science program and their web page would be incredibly useful for my environ science course, however, it is extremely difficult to figure out how to use it properly. It is the opposite of user friendly. I have spent hours trying to get comparitive information about rainfall in different countries for example, and after exhausting efforts, given up. It looks easy to use but don't be deceived! This international science and education program coordinates the work of students, teachers and scientists to study and understand the global enviroment. GLOBE students "make a core set of environmental observations at or near their schools and report their data via the Internet. Scientists use GLOBE data in their research and provide feedback to the students to enrich their science education. Each day, images created from the GLOBE student data sets are posted on the World Wide Web, allowing students and visitors to the GLOBE web site to visualize the student environmental observations." Portions of this site are available in French and Spanish. (added 3/9/97, reviewed 4/15/99)
Sites for Students: 1. http://www.sdcoe.k12.ca.us/districts/cardiff/car/lagoon/cover.html This lagoon guide was created by my first, second and third grade students to help other students learn about the plants in our local area. It includes actual photographs of the plants along with descriptions. 2. http://seds.lpl.arizona.edu/nineplanets/nineplanets/nineplanets.html This site offers a multimedia tour of the solar system, including lots of information for young scientists. It has links to each planet and each moon so you don't have to take the whole tour if you want to see something specific. 3. http://kids.earth.nasa.gov/ A kid's site connected to the NASA site. Includes explanations and information about scientific phenomenon such as El Nino. Kid-friendly explanations and demonstrations. 4. http://www.mcs.surrey.ac.uk/Personal/R.Knott/Fibonacci/fibnat.html#pinecones A site explaining Fibonacci numbers. Includes illustrations demonstrating the occurance of Fibonacci numbers in nature, such as in pinecones. The pictures help to make the high level concepts more accessible. 5. http://disney.go.com/DisneyTelevision/BillNye/ Bill Nye the Science Guy website includes the demo of the day--an experiement that students can try out for themselves. Incorporates science learning into what kids find so engaging--TV! Kim Douillard
Jean Alexander Sites for Students 1. http://www.cotf.edu/BioBLAST/main.html NASA has a multimedia site and program for high school biology. This site has a lot of dynamically presented interesting information. Its not for my students but I enjoyed looking through this site. http://www.geocities.com/RainForest/ Geocities has links to many science related sites and information about the rain forest and animals. Children can easily negotiate this site. 2. http://tetra-fish.com/sitemap.html Sea World has a site map where children can look up facts on fish, reptiles, etc. by clicking on hobbyist information. Sea World also has other well presented, child friendly sites. The information for parents is clearly presented and easy for them to understand. 3. http://public-library.calgary.ab.ca/cya/klchem.htm Kids and Chemistry. This site has info from the Calgary Public Library as well as other links on chemistry that kids can understand. For example you can look at the "Atoms Family" or the "Comic Book Periodic Table of the Elements." Child friendly. 4. http://forum.swarthmore.edu/students/ "Math Forum" from Swarthmore College Student's Site with information and problems. . Students can participate in problem solving activities within this site as they attempt to solve weekly problems and email their answers in. I used some of these problems for "gifted" students because the problems are tricky, well worded, and have multiple parts to them. 5. http://members.aol.com/egyptmouse/ My sister, who is an archeologists, sent this URL to me months ago. The site describes Mousey's (a stuffed toy mouse) travels around Egypt and gives history and geography lessons in a child friendly way.
Hi Jim! Here is my list of 5 web sites (in rank order) that I think would be of educational value for students: Number 1: http://www.funschool.com/ This is a visually stimulating website that provides on line activities for students organized by grade level. For example, a first grader can participate in playing concentration, reading stories, etc. There is also a "state locating" game where a map of the US is provided and students are prompted to locate particular states (State detective). I think this would be a wonderful opportunity for students to hone their skills and test themselves on their geographical knowledge (and develop "mouse control" skills). Number 2: http://www.ipl.org/youth/HomePage2.html This page is the Internet Public Library. It houses links to a variety of library-type resources: science info, encyclopedias, reading (complete books/ some with audio and some without), etc. It also has "newspaper - like" articles, a question/answer option, and hints for using computers. This site is like spending time at a library, but from the comfort of your own home... Number 3: http://www.addison.lib.il.us/5school.htm Though this isn't an highly interactive sight, it does provide some valuable resources for students. It is a library site with links to a "homework helper" tips page, calculators on-line, guides to grammar and writing, dictionaries and a thesaurus on line. Number 4: http://www.exploratorium.org/digit/index.html This is a website with a wealth of information -- most likely suited to older students. It is maintained by the Exploratorium in San Francisco. It has a digital library with archived audio of lectures on particular topics. It provides images, sounds etc. and a host of "web casts" -- upcoming and those already completed. Number 5: http://www.dkonline.com/kids/private/atlas/index.html This site is like a mini-encyclopedia on line. It links links to websites dedicated to providing information about particular countries. Some of the country web-sites might be more useful for travelers, but there are some that provide information on plants, animals. There are guides to culture, geography. Some even provide visuals -- ie. a "photo voyage" in a particular country or maps. Thanks! Joyce
Web sites for myself and my students: I am a junior high History teacher. While there are many web sites that I use, many of them are also very appropriate for students because they have primary and secondary source historical information for research. For this reason, I have included a number of web sites that are more for teacher use, but my first list is for both teacher and student use. I commented mostly on the content of these sites but they are all exemplary sites because they are organized, visually appealing, and have extensive resources. Teacher and Student Use 1. http://www.msnbc.com/news/default.asp This is the MSNBC web site. It is a wonderful current events resource that includes national and world events as well as commentary on social issues. 2. http://www.score.k12.ca.us/ This is the SCORE site (Schools of California On-line Resources for Education). It has activities and resources for California's curriculum organized by grade level and by subject. It has evaluated the links. Great for student research. 3. http://www.lib.utexas.edu/Libs/PCL/Map_collection/Map_collection.html I found this source when I was trying to find a map of Yugoslavia to use in my classroom to discuss the Kosovo issue. They had wonderful maps, including one coded for religious/ethnic breakdowns. They have a wide variety of maps for both teacher and student use. 4. http://kuhttp.cc.ukans.edu/history/index.html This is a source very rich in good links. It looks like it is put together by the University of Kansas. It has World History links (which are less common that US History links). This would be a great source for both students and teachers. 5. http://lcweb.loc.gov/homepage/lchp.html This is the Library of Congress page. Wonderful resource to search for primary sources in historical research. Good for both students and teachers. Ann Cerny
Here are the pages I found that would be helpful for children: 1. granicus.if.org/~firmiss/m-d.html This is the Skunk and Opossum page! THere is general info. about the animals, photos, conservation efforts, games, puzzles and a movie. The page is quite engaging, colorful and the facts seem accurate and current. 2. frog.simplenet.com/froggy/ This site is "home to all kinds of virtual frogginess, from the silly to the scientific." Their are pictures, sounds, tales, songs, etc., as well as good information about frogs. Easy and delightful to look at. 3. www.homeworkcentral.com This page is a resource to help kids with school work, or just do school-type work. It has categories for 1-6 grade, middle school, and high school in all subject areas. 4. www.kidsthinklink.com This is a International Children's on-line magazine. Downfall: it took a very long time to get to each page, so I finally gave up, but it looked promising. 5. www.animabets.com This is an interactive site, where kids play games, do puzzles, and the like. The games are related to the alphabet, numbers, colors, etc. Thanks, Donna
Student Web sites: http://www.jasonproject.org/ The Jason Project, an interactive site with pictures, movies, resarch articles and other information. This year the JASON team traveled to the Amazon Center for Environmental Education and Research (ACEER),located in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest. http://www.bjpinchbeck.com B.J. Pinchbeck's Homework Helper A comprehensive site for students with infotmation on: Search Engines Reference Section, News and Current, Events ,Math, Science, Social Studies, English, History,Music and Art,Foreign Languages,Computers and the Internet, Health and Physical Education, Playtime, Teacher's Corner,Search Tips,My Weekly Spelling http://www.ran.org/ran/info_center/index.html Rainforest information site. very and informative and colorful. Includes fact sheets, reports, press releases on rainforests throughout the world. http://www.pbs.org/science/ A web site thaat connects with different tv programs on science. Excellant pictres and graphics. Also good for teachers. http://www.servtech.com/~mvail/home.html Digital Librarian excellent resource for researching all topics. Divided into major catgories by sunject area. For example in science: marine science, environmental, biochemistry. very detailed. Sharon Sinclair
Here are the exemplary web sites that I found for kids: http://www.discovery.com/ My students are very interested in animals, science and nature. This site has wonderful graphics and lots of information that my students would find facinating. http://www.cnn.com/ This is a great site for current events. It has many links, graphics, audio and video. http://www.exploratorium.edu/default.html This site gives exciting information about science, art and human perception. The museum is in San Francisco, but the site has a Q&A section as well as subjects my students would be interested in, like the science of skateboarding. http://www.pbs.org/kids/fungames/ This looks like a lot of fun. As a matter of fact, I am going to e-mail it to some of my students who have written to me to say that they are already bored! This site has lots of links to other sites and includes a section on how to tell a good joke, karaoke and coloring on-line. http://www.whitehouse.gov/WH/kids/html/kidshome.html This would be a very useful site for me and my students when we study about the presidency. This was a fun and useful activity. Now I just hope that my school is on-line and ready to go in the Fall! Thank you, Colleen
Five exemplary student web sites: Ranking 1 www.bonus.com/ "Supersite for kids" This site is extremely colorful with options to explore, color, play games, etcThis site will hold the interest of kids for a long time. 2 www.howstuffworks.com/ This site contains everything the curious child (or adult) would want to learn in relation to how things work. All those tough to answer questions can be handled here. 3 http://disney.go.com/ Another classic web site that houses a variety of educational sub-sites, ie. Bill Nye the Science Guy and School House Rock. Great site for elementary age students. 4 http://dww.deafworldweb.org/ Excellent site for students of American Sign Language. Information regarding events, culture, language and other topics can be accessed here. 5 http://themeworld.com/ This site would be interesting for secondary age students. It offers information regarding famous people, nature and universities, among other topics. Jodi Mowrey
Exemplary Websites for Students: 1.)www.cnn.com: I frequently ask my students to connect themes in our literature to current events. CNN.com is quick easy access to the most up-to-date news. My students use it a lot. 2.)www.ocsc.com/hoagies/kidstuff.htm: this website for the "gifted and talented" students (I teach 3 periods of GATE) has a wonderful link that contains reading lists, magazines, and the like. 3.)www.bonus.com: What a colorful website with fun and easy links to interesting sites for kids! 4.)www.eb.com: On a more academic side, the Encyclopedia Brittanica website (which you have to pay for) has excellent and interesting research for students. My students are asked to research frequently! 5.)www.howstuffworks.com: This is a fun "surf" site for kids with zillions of things to read and research! 6.)www.pbs.org/kids: All kinds of interesting research, "fun stuff" for kids to do. It's a bit young for my students, but has links to other sites that my students would find intersting. Kristi Ellis
Subject: TEP 231 Annie Rego & Mary Noble For students to use http://www.osho.com/talks/unconc19.htm http://www.hopepaul.com/kids/solidgeo/intro/intro_sw.htm http://teams.lacoe.edu/documentation/classrooms/jeannie/geometry/5-6/web/web.html This site contains lessons on tangrams. This site also has adreesess from where to buy software.
Andrea Barraugh   Educational Websites for Students   1. http://www.nas.com/envision/index.html **Actually this turned out to be a site advertising a software -- but the software is pretty great. It makes use of hypermedia.  It provides students with great graphics, allowing them to navigate through a web of  realistic problems.  It has a notepad that students work on, complete with spreadsheet and graphing capabilities. It provides hints when a student requests it.  It is the best math website I have seen!   2. http://tqjunior.advanced.org/4471/Default.htm This is a website designed by fourth graders with math word problems and tips on how to solve them.  It is exemplary because students have many choices in problems as well as the type of help they can get -- strategies, heuristics, representations.  Once they ask for help, it provides expert models of solving the problem using the strategy they choose.  It also has links to other math sites.   3. http://www.ed.gov/pubs/parents/Math/index.html This is a great website because it is informative for parents and gets them involved in teaching and learning.  It provides a description of the current political movements in mathematics education along with various articles for parents.  Then it lists many math games that parents can play at home with their kids.  It also instructs parents in detail on how to make every day life into opportunities for mathematical learning. It covers a range of ages. The site gives parents tips on what to expect from a quality school math program as well as what they can do at home to reduce tv hours and increase learning opportunities in fun ways.   4. http://mathcounts.org/ This is the Math Counts competition website.  It gives a problem of the week -  which I am going to put in my thesis appendix.  It also provides many practice "warm-up" problems.  It is exemplary because it provides the user with plenty of coaching so that the user can become competent at solving problems.   5. http://www.csmt.ewu.edu/wsmc/ This website is a cooperative group math competition for Washington residents.  Although my students would not be able to participate in it, it provides some great problems for them to solve.  The problems are complex and emphasize reality.   6. http://www.aplusmath.com/Games/index.html This website is not really my bag but for those parents who are into flashcards and basic fact practice, this is the spot for them.  It provides a homework computation check, where students can enter math problems and it will tell them if they are correct or not.  It provides various levels of flashcards and games such as concentration.  It would make many parents happy.
LISA LUNA (Mary Elizabeth) #1 Favorite Exemplary Web Site for Students = Kidlink Home Page http://www.kidlink.org/english/index.html Kidlink is a grassroots organization aimed at getting youth through the age of 15 involved in a GLOBAL dialog. It is a a place where kids can join together and talk. It is available in many different languages. It is an example of an exemplary web site because it is eye-catching with its animated icons and "children made" picture displays. It is full of activites, projects, and chat rooms for children. It even has a "Help Wizard" to help students with homework and questions. #2 Favorite Exemplary Web Site for Students = PBS Home Page for kids http://www.pbs.org/kids/ PBS has an awesome web site! It is lively with music, movies, games, and stories-- all very educational for students. Best of all, it is fun. Students are familiar with most of these characters from watching PBS, so it holds interest. #3 Favorite Exemplary Web Site for Students = Dr. Math Home Page http://forum.swarthmore.edu/dr.math/dr-math.html Dr. Math is a web site for students of all ages, where they can ask Dr. Math for help with everything involving math, including: About Numbers, Addition, Division, Fractions and Decimals, Geometry, Golden Rectangle, Grab Bag, Infinity, Large Numbers, Math History, Multiplication, Place value, Projects, Puzzles, Square roots, Subtraction, Terms and Units of Measure and Word problems. Students submit questions and recieve a reply. They can also take part in an on-line math forum. It is exemplary because it deals with a subject which many students have phobias about. They can ask questions without feeling like they "look stupid", or are asking a "dumb question". #4 Favorite Exemplary Web Site for Students = Education Place Home Page http://www.eduplace.com/kids/index.html Houghton Mifflin has creatyed this wonderful web site where children can play games, solve brain teaser, go into a reading room and have fun with learning activities. It is for K-8 graders. And because it's Houghton Mifflin, you know its good!! (Right?!) #5 Favorite Exemplary Web Site for Students = Science Home Page http://nyelabs.kcts.org/flash_go.html Full of science stuff for all grade levels!
Web sites for students to use: http://scnc.jps.k12.mi.us/~shotwell/index.html This web site is done by a student at Jackson High School in Michigan. He is Deaf and he lists a lot of information about deaf colleges, a deaf resource guide, and a has links to his personal web site. I think it would be great for deaf elementary and high school students to see another deaf student and his web page. They could also get information about events in other states and maybe get ideas for starting some activities in San Diego. http://www.enchantedlearning.com/dictionary.html This web site is for young children. It is called little explorers and it has 909 illustrated dictionary entries. The students just click on a letter and the entry comes up. It also has links to dot to dot games and other educational sites. http://www.teleport.com/~dstroy/index.html This site has everything a student would want to know about frogs. The site is called frogland. It is very colorful and great for research reports. You can color a frog or learn about the different parts of a frog. http://worldkids.net/pooh/welcome.html This site is called Pooh Pages. Young children can follow Pooh on an adventure where they have 20 different places to visit. It is very educational and fun for the kids. The students have to click on the place they would like to visit with Pooh. http://quest.arc.nasa.gov/project/jupiter.html This site is the NASA K-12 initiative: online from Jupiter. It is an interactive science classroom that is very fun and informational for the students. The students can read field journals and track missions. This would go great with the field trip to the Challenger Center in Balboa Park that the fifth graders do each year. Jennifer Jones
From: su To: Jim Levin Subject: TEP 231 Kid Resources 1. http://www.sandiegozoo.com/apps/animals/ is an interactive web site for children to get acquanted and learn about animals at the zoo.  The colored photographs and the wide range of links that children can easily go to from one click to another allows kids to get more detailed information about a specific animal. 2.  http://www.pbs.org/kids/ is an interactive site specifically for kids.  By getting onto different links, kids are provided with the steps to create games, jokes, songs and many other activities that would interest children and development important skills.  A few animations, lots of color and a wide variety of links to other sites and activities can easily keep students entertained.   3.  www.yahooligns.com reminds me of an adult version of Yahoo, yet, toned down to the scale and interest of kids where they can go through journeys/trips through photos and narratives as well as find out more information about news, sports, computers and many other subject areas.   4.  www.enchantedlearning.com is a site where there are a variety of topics, mostly animals, that children can choose from to learn. 5.  http://wwar.com/postcard/ is a web site where users can click onto an image that is a piece created by an artist at a familiar museum and send it as a postcard, writing a message to a significant other. I ranked the above according to the amount of active and colorful learning that was going on in each site as well as how much content area/skills the I felt the site covered. Su
Student exemplar web sites 1. www.askjeeves.com An information web site on a wide range of subjects Good activities for students. Easy to use, provides good activities often using house hold materials. 2. www.pbs.org see the teacher exemplars 3. www.sandiegozoo.org A website for the San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park Students can browse any section of the zoo or park, getting information on all animal and plant species. Could be coordinated with visit to both the zoo and the park. Dave White
I found five sites that I thought would be useful in a variety of science courses. The first site relates to physics and physical science:   www.glenrook.k12.il.us/gbssci/phys/Class/BBoard.html   This site represents the Physics Classroom which is a interactive high school physics tutorial complete with sample questions, real-life applications, animation, and simulations.  The site is reader friendly and easy to navigate.  It also has links to an interactive high school chemistry tutorial.   I would use the remaining four sites for a life science classroom:   1)    The Interactive Fly:  This site would be a perfect supplement to an A.P. Biology course that was doing the optional Drosophila lab.  The site discusses the Drosophila's genes and their role in the development of the fly.  It has details pictures of the fly at its different stages:    www.sdb.bio.purdue.edu/fly/aimain/1aahome.htm      2)    Cells Alive:  This site  is amazing!  It has time-lapsed photography, using bio-cams, of different types of cells and microorganism replicating.  The bio-cams also show the immune system cells protecting the body against foreign organism.  I was truely impressed.  I think that this type of site could add excitement to studying the world of microorganism, cancer, cells, and the immune system.   www.cellsalive.com   3)    The Interactive Pathology Laboratory for Medical Education:  This site has some incredible pictures of the anatomy of a human.  It also has some great pictures of different types of cells and tissue types.  Each picture comes with a tutorial.  The site also has diseased tissues and discusses how the tissues become diseased.  I think that this site would be good for promoting interest in a general biology course and would be excellent for instruction in an A.P. Biology course or in an Anatomy/Physiology course.   www.medlib.med.utah.edu/webPath/webpath.html#MENU   4)    MIT Biology Hypertextbook:  This textbook would serve as a good resource for students who were researching a biology subject or who needed to review a concept.  The site is easy to navigate.  It has great pictures and good explanations.   www.mit.edu:8001/esgbio/7001main.html Shawna Jackson
Jim, The web sites I have selected for teacher and student reflect more the technical area I teach in rather than the K-12 type sites. It is essential for both experienced students to become connected to the water and wastewater technology field. The following web sites will help them become part of that community and will therefore help them begin communication with their peers. FOR STUDENTS Number One: www.wef.org This site is the international organization (Water Environment Federation) for wastewater professionals of all types - engineers, researchers, operators, managers, etc. This site provides information of many types and will open the students' horizon for the possibilities in the field. Number Two: www.epa.gov/r5water/ This site is from one of the nine regions of the Environmental Protection Agency. Region 5 includes Chicago, Illinois. This site contains information and opportunities well beyond Region 5 (central US) EPA. Those working on this site must have recognized the lack of good sites for this field and decided to try to fill the gap. (The other EPA regions can use this site as a prototype for what can be done. Number Three: www.lacsd.org This site is an example of the kind of opportunities available through a large wastewater treatment district. The Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts has always been quite progressive in applicatioin of new technology. Number Four: www.ebmud.com This site is from one of the largest wastewater districts in northern California. Again this will help the students establish rapport with other operators within the state and to understand overarching political issues facing the industry. Number Five www.watereuse.org This site is representative of an important aspect in the water and wastewater field: reclamation. This field bridges the gap between water and wastewater treatment and any operator that is conversant in this field has a decided advantage (for professional advancement) over someone who does not. The site could use some better links to other sites since they should represent a nexus of information for the industry. Number Six: www.awwa.org This site is the from the international organization for the water industry, American Water Works Association. The site is not very good when compared with its wastewater counterpart (site Number One above). Joanna
5 exemplary and often used student web sites: 1. http://www.comenius.com/ This is an excellent resource for English teachers. I have found and implemented a wonderful "Weekly Idiom" reference, fluency fable story builders, and E-mail Pal Connection programs. I love Virtual English Center. 1. http://ets.com or http://toefl.org For Toefl students, this site can be useful to take practice teofl tests on the new computerized format. It's great to access this because the new exam format is computer-adaptive, which acan be challenging in that the questions are modified according to the way a student answers the previous question. 2. http://www.heinle.com Since much of our curriculum is based on Heinle and Heinle books, this web site offers extra grammar based activities and ofther information which is useful and helpful to English students. It also features an image resource bank for ordering texts on-line. 3. http://www.nzz.ch/english This is the link for our many Swiss students who studey at our school in La Jolla. It offers current events in a nice, clean format, and it's probably the most often visited site connected to from our computer lab. it, especially for English teachers. 4. http://www.discover.com Students can learn all about the many content areas they are currently studying. Usually, students are assigned a monthly videotape presentation and they like to tap into this site for extra information and ideas. 5. http://www.u-net.com/eflweb/tefl21.htm This reference gives a great directory of all the schools internationally that teach English to non-native speakers.
