It’s time for more science bookmarks! This morning I’ll be sharing a collection of bookmarks, which I think students and teachers of science may find useful. Some of them are specific to a particular unit of study, while others are more general in nature. There are definitely some duplicates here from my previous posts, but I don’t think there’s much harm in that. I’ve categorized all these resources by subject: astronomy, biology, chemistry, ecology, and physics. Today’s post focuses on general biology. You can find additional bookmarks in my earlier post, “Biology resources for students: part 1.”
- Biology for Life: Already in the previous post, but worth sharing again.
- Bioknowledgy: Probably the biology resource I use most. Awesome.
- IBO Biology Teacher Support Material: Great resource for teacher of IB Biology. Access is password protected and associated with IB World Schools.
- UC-Davis BioWiki: A broad overview of university-level biology information.
- Mitosis and Cytokinesis: Animation from McGraw-Hill.
- Bioman biology game: Includes online games as well as links to native apps.
- Carbon cycle: A nice, simple animation from the University of Alberta, Canada.
- John Kyrk’s biology animations: Simply amazing animations for a range of topics in biology. Incredible attention to detail.
- Learn.Genetics: A well-organized genealogy and genetics site from Utah.
- Meiosis video: Paul Andersen and Bozeman Science. ‘Nuff said.
- Mitosis world: A collection of links about…mitosis!
- The Plant Cell Journal: A scientific publication from the American Society of Plant Biologists.
- Animations and tutorials from Mr Hardin’s class: I don’t know this teacher, but he’s collated a lot of useful tutorials and animations for biology.
- Transpiration animation: Simple click-through animation appropriate for primary and middle school.
- Understanding Evolution: UC-Berkeley’s exhaustive collection of evolution resources.
- Sex determination: An animated TED-Ed video.
- Evolution labs from NOVA: Great interactive resource for learning about the interaction of genetics and natural selection.
- The Biology Project: The University of Arizona’s extensive collection of biology resources. Geared for high school and university students.
- i-Biology: Another website I regularly consult for IB Bio and MYP biology units.
- A World of Biology: Ms Frost’s IB Biology-aligned class weebly.
- Lab protocols for the new IB Biology: A useful guide for IB Bio students and teachers.
- Punnett Square Calculator: An interactive, color-coded guide to monohybrid crosses, dihybrid crosses, and more complex crosses. Great for a flipped lesson or two.
- InThinking IB Biology site: An actively collated collection of activities and resources for teachers and students in IB Biology classes.
- 3-D Interactive Biological Molecules: Exactly what the title says. Good for IB Bio.
I hope these aren’t too repetitive. I just want to pass them along so that my students and colleagues have access to some of the many wonderful biology resources I’ve found over the years.
