Science NetLinks is one of those resources I was sure I had blogged about previously. I checked twice just to make sure- and no. This is a huge oversight because Science NetLinks has an abundance of K-12 science supports and it is a site I used frequently as an elementary teacher of science. The site provides standards-aligned lesson plans, interactives, and reviewed internet resources.
Science NetLinks has a thorough Lessons Index that is organized by grade bands and content areas- multiple great lessons for supplementing your existing instructional materials.
The Tools page has several links to reviewed online tools for K-12 science education. I will highlight a few of my favorites in upcoming posts.
Science Updates are 60 second podcasts of current science research. The update lessons contain suggestions for use in K-12 education plus a transcript and supporting resources. Check out Not Dead Yet about Argentinian ants being wrongly carted off for dead.
Applications for Science Teachers: Science NetLinks could be used to supplement your instructional materials as you implement standards-based science instruction. Resources are linked to the AAAS Benchmarks.
