100 Best Websites for Science Teachers


The Forensic Scientist Blog has recently published their list of the 100 Best Websites for Science Teachers. Sadly, the Froggies didn't make it but here is the top five:

1.Exploratorium: Get a virtual museum of science, art, and the human perception here. You can explore straight from the homepage or get webcasts. Be sure and click on the Educate tab for tonnes of teaching tools such as activities, science snacks, and the Iron Science Teacher.

2. How Stuff Works: This leading science website does just what the title promises. It takes everyday subjects such as cars, snowstorms, and loads of others and puts them in an easy to understand context. Choose from subjects such as animals, electronics, geography, and several expert blogs.

3. Discovery Science: Stop here for the website of a leading science channel. There are games, quizzes, and much more. They even have an exclusive interview with the creator of “Avatar” and the science behind it.

4. Extreme Science: Here you’ll find world records in natural science, including earth science and the plant and animal kingdom. There are also challenges, lessons, and loads more.

5. Federal Resources for Educational Excellence: Get free science teaching resources from the U.S. Department of Education. Science tools include those for applied, Earth, life, and physical sciences. There are also options in other subjects.
