Access Excellence is a web site (look especially under "Activities Challenge"), which is a listing of of science (mainly biology-related) activities created and contributed by educators to share with others. It's very, very, very nifty. The main site itself is a plethora of handy information with sections for student and teacher and parent alike. All in all, an amazing site well worth seeing.

  • Sea World -- Billed as an "Animal Information Database", this site contains facts and short quizzes about wild animals ranging from lions to killer whales to frogs. Also of interest to teachers are specific teacher's guides for lots of zoological subjects. You can see some of the activities online, but for the full documents you will have to order them directly.

  • Check out Sci-Link, innovative projects supported by the National Science Foundation linking research scientists, science educators, teachers, and students to translate current scientific knowledge into teaching practices.

  • NASA K-12 Internet Initiative presents online interactive projects as part of the "Internet in the Classroom" project. Last year, "Live from Antarctica" presented children with the chance to communicate live & direct with people on the coldest continent. [Note: This is also good for a lesson in geography!]

  • NASA produces and disseminates a lot of information via the World Wide Web; it was with great pleasure that we found the Total Solar Eclipse of 26 February 1998 pages, keeping us informed of eclipse paths and appearance dates and such. In addition to this page (first of many we found fascinating on this site), there are the Five Year Canon of Solar Eclipse pages, maintained by Frank Roussel in Rennes, France. All in all, a lot of information to use either in the classroom or to point interested students towards.
