  1. Interactive Websites and Science Education Angie Bunker

  2. Benefits of using Interactive Websites • Kids Love Computers!! • They are very familiar and comfortable with computers • Great for visual learners • Websites are easy to find in any search engine

  3. Benefits of Using Interactive Websites cont. • Can use in conjunction with other activities or as a substitute to the real thing • Saves time, space, and resources • All students can be involved

  4. Froguts.com • http://froguts.com/

  5. Uses of Virtual Frog Dissection • Introduction – before actual dissection • Alternative to dissection

  6. Virtual Plant Experiments • http://cycas.cornell.edu/ebp/projects/laststraw/ise/home.html

  7. Uses for Virtual Plant Experiment • Understanding experiments in general and the scientific method • Substitute for actual experiment – lack of space or time • Can test many different things in a short period of time

  8. Mechanics of an Inclined Plane • http://www.explorescience.com/activities/activity_list.cfm?categoryID=10

  9. Uses of Mechanics of an Inclined Plane • Introduction of relationships between mass, velocity, energy, angles, and acceleration • Students can discover on their own • No expensive equipment required for measurements (besides a computer)

  10. Interactive Websites • Can find for virtually (no pun intended) any area of science • Can be a great tool if computers are accessible • Should not always take to the place of real, hands-on experiences
