So you aren't a science teacher, so what. You can still spend all day getting your fix of things scientific.

SOURCE


Boldly go where no science teacher has gone before!

Your continuing mission: to discover useful new sites, to integrate them into your lesson plans and to giggle at this corny Star Trek reference.



I thought the notion of discovery was really fitting for this post—so, with that said, I hope you come across something that excites your students about science.

Now, set a course for the end of this list—warp factor 9. Engage!



1 - The Exploratorium
The official website of the Exploratorium, the museum of science, art and human perception in San Francisco. It includes materials and activities for a variety of things from astronomy and space to the human body.



7 - MadSciNet
Use the search engine or archives to find answers to over 36,000 science-related questions.



21 - Science Clips
Check out dozens of interactive science games and activities for ages 5-11 on the BBC’s Science Clips website.



32 - The Atoms Family
This fun website teaches about energy, light, atoms and conservation by using mummies, vampires and other monsters.



52 - Earthquakes for Kids
The U.S. Geological Survey website provides students with information about earthquakes. They can learn about the latest quakes, watch animations, get ideas for science fairs or play earthquake-related puzzles and games.



Bonus - (Added between 78 & 79) - Darwin: Who Wants to Live a Million Years? Game
As I'm sure you can guess from the title, this game is about natural selection. Play it as a class and see if your students can create a species that survives for a million years. This game is a hoot!

Awesome.

There is another good one put together by some university in the UK.

I'm on my phone right now, but I'll hunt it down and link to it later on.

First thing I did was try the Survival Game, of course...happens I'm not a survivor :-(
My lineage is bound to die...

i recommend Khan Academy, 9th on the list.

Its a great way to understand stuff taught in school but you didn't understand it in class.

Especially Math. I never really had problem with science.

Ha

I said the same thing when I came across it.

"We've found the mother lode!"
