North American Mamals   http://www.mnh2.si.edu/education/mna/  Site Reviews(0)
The Smithsonian Institution is well regarded for both its fine in situ collections and its rather dynamic and lively Web-based exhibits and databases. This particular site contains a searchable database of the approximately 400 living mammals of North America. Much of the material on the site is based on The Smithsonian Book of North American Mammals by Don E. Wilson and Sue Ruff. New visitors will definitely want to begin by perusing the "About the Site" area as it provides some basic information about how to best utilize the ways to search the database. In brief, the database may be searched by species, geographic location, conservation status, and family tree. For each mammal, visitors can view several renderings and photographs and also read a short scientific and narrative description. A particularly novel feature is that for many of the mammals visitors can listen to a sound clip of each in its natural habitat. Another feature that is quite helpful is that visitors can create their own printable field guides by merely clicking a box next to each mammal's scientific name, and then proceed to print these materials out as they wish.

National Geophysical Data Center   http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/education/education.html  Site Reviews(0)
Educators in the geophysical sciences will find much to work with on this site created by the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration*s National Geophysical Data Center. Utilizing data captured over time by their team of scientific experts, the site includes a climate timeline informational tool which can be used to demonstrate the transformation of the Earth*s climate over the past 100,000 years and a section titled *All About Snow*, which provides answers to questions about snow. The real treats here are the interactive hands-on activities that include an origami balloon of elevations and an even more complex dodecahedron globe that offers a three- dimensional visualization for use by students and teachers. Finally, the *Visualizing Data* area contains a few recent additions that can be used in the classroom, such as several animated dives to the bottom of the Marianas Trench off of the Philippines.
