Physical Science and Math Simulations

Tech & Learning is always a great resource for learning about websites. Go to the University of Colorado's project, PhET, that has developed physical science and math simulations. They can be run directly from the website or downloaded. Some simulations have teacher developed lesson plans. You can search the website by grade level, content or type of simulation. It is an awesome resource. My high school science teachers use it and highly recommend it. Here is an example of one of the simulations.


Physics, Chemistry and Biology Site

FreezeRay is in association with Great Barr School, a specialist Science college. It offers some flash files, templates, and teachers' guides. My Science department chair said she can use every single flash movie for Biology classes that she teaches. She just wished there were more of them available on the site.

Microscopic images library

Dennis Kunkel's website is wonderful.

Some of his game titles: The Mendel and Meiosis Game, The DNA and Genes Game, The Energy Game, The Digestive and Endocrine System Game, and Protection, Locomotion and Support Game. Here is one of Leslie's videos that he has uploaded to YouTube.



Interactive Universe


One of our Science students shared this online interactive game. Students in an Earth Science class were given the opportunity to teach their classmates. She found this game to engage her classmates in the learning process. They loved it. The game teaches them facts about red-hot planets, distant galaxies, dying stars and killer asteroids. Interactive Universe is the name of the game at the History.com website. Shown below is a screen shot of the game.
