If you're a High School Science teacher, you'll want to review the amazing resources found on Harvard University's Life Science Outreach Program website. The site contains actual teacher-created resources covering Physiology, Microbiology, Regenerative Biology, Evolution, Neurobiology, Immunology, and the Biology of Cancer.
For each area of study, teachers created Lesson Plans covering a variety of topic areas. Many of these lessons include supporting PowerPoints, Lecture Videos and Scientific Animations.
This is a great site to see what other teachers are creating for their classrooms and to build upon what they've already created. Some of the Scientific Animations are outstanding and include interactive activities that work great on the SMART Board. I also like that a lot of the teacher-created activities were developed as WebQuests. If you've never seen the structure of a WebQuest, this is a great opportunity to experience how a WebQuest can increase engagement and motivation in the classroom.
Sites like this are rare and should be shared with the teachers at your school. Remember, Sharing Is Caring, so please forward this website to the High School Science teachers in your district. They'll thank you for it!
