Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Adding the Internet to classroom lessons can be a daunting task for teachers and librarians. The tried-and-true methods of evaluating traditional materials (books, magazines, videos) don't translate as easily to Web sites. Fredericks offers not only lists of Web sites, but also ideas on how to use the Internet as part of a larger classroom or research activity. Part one is fairly general, including an introduction to teaching science, as well as tips on teaching with online resources. Included are Web sites that offer lesson plans, suggested search engines, and an example of a parental consent form. The second part, which makes up the bulk of the book, offers science units. Each one focuses on a particular subject area, covering specific topics in the life, physical, earth, and space sciences and the human body (sample subjects include food chains and webs, magnetism, volcanoes, asteroids, and the respiratory system). Each unit includes a list of Web sites, suggested research questions for students, a short bibliography, and a few activities. There is nothing extraordinary about this book, but it's a comprehensive guide for those who are new to the information superhighway, and it's refreshing to see that the author includes print material in his suggested lesson plans.-Dina Sherman, Brooklyn Children's Museum, NY

Format: Paperback
I remember using this book and the Social Studies Discoveries on the Net: An Integrated Approach (Teacher Ideas Press) one many years ago for my boys when they were elementary age. I found these books at the library. There are quite a few ideas and we had some fun lesson plans based on these books. Several moms would ask me where I got the ideas for a lesson plan, for instance, insects. I mentioned this book. These books are large, oversized books. I'd have to look at them now, 2009, I would guess that many of the websites (most, probably) are no longer available but the book would still offer ideas on where to look and what to put together for different subjects.

I am going to give this 4 stars because the links are out of date but the book was very useful many years ago when I needed ideas.
