The pages linked below (and accessible via the drop down menu) will provide some background on the concepts behind each interactive webpage and the learning I did to create each webpage. My hope is that this will inspire other teachers to learn how to create their own webpages for themselves and their students!
Sorting Rock Types — an aid to help my MS students prepare to identify rocks and building stone on their three day field trip to NYC
Stream Biotic Index — to assess overall water quality
Simpson’s Index of Diversity — assessing species diversity in a forest
Identifying African Countries — a drag and drop activity
Music of Africa — using tooltips to provide links to the diversity of musical styles on the continent
NYC Geology — an interactive review of the geological forces that shaped the formation of Manhattan island, the Hudson River and the Verrazano Narrows.
