Schoolyard Habitats - National Wildlife Federation - 4 views

  •  
    The National Wildlife Federation has some great information on creating a schoolyard habitat. This is the kind of thing you could plan during post-planning to give time for the summer and to have them ready for the fall. There is also a way to certify your school yard habitat. We have two gardens at our school and outdoor classrooms and the students learn so much. I highly recommend considering this at your school. This can be done with all ages.

The Apprentice Style Entomology Practical - Resources - TES - 3 views

  •  
    Interesting, a biology lesson using a style from "the Apprentice" to provide peer feedback in the area of forensic entomology. Themed lessons like this add interest, especially if it is a program that kids watch.

Switch Zoo - 6 views

  •  
    An interesting site with lots of activities and information about animals, including a fun animal switcher which lets you use various parts of real animals to make a new (and usually bizarre) creature. So if you have ever thought that a bear would look better with a crocodile's head, now is your chance to prove it!
