1 ) The History of Vaccines
- This comprehensive website, organized by The College of
Physicians of Philadelphia is the place to go if for information
on vaccines. This website includes timelines, interactive games
and activities, articles with comprehension guides and a gallery
- This website can be an amazing addition to a science classroom
if you are teaching about different body systems or the chemistry
behind the vaccines. It could also be interesting in a social studies
classroom if you are learning about different epidemics in history
or in a world issues class discussing how medical resources affect
- What I liked was the game "Illsville" where students can control a
city, watch how illness affects society, determine the importance
of vaccines, determine how to allocate resources and help protect
2 ) Cell Craft
- This interactive game allows students to learn about cells as they
are playing a game! It is a little difficult to get the hang of at the
start but once you get into it the game offers A LOT of information.
- This game would be perfect for review or after a preliminary lesson
has been taught because students do require some background information
on the structure of cells before they can begin the game.
- The vocabulary is quite advanced so I would suggest it for a high
school class as opposed to early years.
3 ) NASA PlanetQuest
- Teaching about our solar system?? How about the planets outside
our solar system?! NASA's new website shares it's search for other
planets through interactive games, images, videos and articles.
- Students can learn about the math and science behind the discovery of
planets, the history of our knowledge about space and life outside of
earth. Some of the fun interactives includes creating your own planet,
searching space in 3D images and discovering organisms that have been
found on other planets!
4 ) BioLogica
- This is not just a website about biology, it is an interactive lab that
your students can work through! As students begin they are asked to
answer questions including their reasoning behind their answers. This online
lab can suggest additional resources to further learning and creates online
profiles of student progress for teachers to monitor!
- This could be a great resource for a flipped classroom.
Happy Monday everyone!!
