Tracking Sea Turtles

Tracking Sea Turtles | Education 230: Mid-Term Project | Scoop.it
Click here to edit the title
Saima Adnan's insight:

A great website to use when teaching students about environment and conservancy. There are turtles that are being tracked. Click on their names and find out their current as well as past locations. The website also provides link to "Educator's Guide" (check towards the bottom of the page). This link provides additional materials that a teacher can use in the class.

NMNH - Virtual Tour

Saima Adnan's insight:

For something closer to home: Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History's virtual tour. It is interactive. It has easy navigation tools. Lets you see close ups of some main exhibited piece (a little camera appears next to the objects where this option is available).  Gives you overall view to help you narrow down the search.

Animal Planet Live - Animal Planet L!VE

Animal Planet Live - Animal Planet L!VE | Education 230: Mid-Term Project | Scoop.it
Animal Planet LIVE, featuring live HD cams for chicks, puppies, ants, cockroaches, penguins, kittens and many more.
Saima Adnan's insight:

Students can choose what animal(s) they would to watch. With the video there is brief information on the animal they are watching. There is option to join others in the chatroom (caution: teachers, please review it beforehand. So far found nothing objectionable). The feature I really liked was that they provided the best viewing times. For instance: animal's feeding time.
