Title: Sea Urchin Embryology
Url: http://web.stanford.edu/group/Urchin/
Publisher: Hopkins Marine Station
Description: Intended for highschool biology teachers, this interesting site contains useful information and ideas for college labs as well. Background information on urchins -- the central study organisms of these embryology lessons -- may be found in the Urchins section; here, users will learn about anatomy and physiology, natural history, path of development, and taxonomic classification, as well as how to obtain and keep urchins in the lab. Teaching units are divided into four main segments: Core Lab (introductory lab), Primary Labs (six labs covering fertilization and experiments), Support Lessons (a series of basic lessons for beginning students), and Information (a collection of additional resources for teachers). Advanced labs are outlined in the substantial Extended Research section, and several dozen animations (.gif), in English or Spanish, illustrate lab procedures and developmental processes. Other learning tools include a glossary, reference list, overheads, and a "skill required" list; additionally, the entire site may be downloaded as a .zip file. This is a nicely conceived site, well worth the visit by educators and students, alike.
