Title: Encyclopedia of Life: Learning + Education
Url: https://education.eol.org/
Publisher: National Museum of Natural History (U.S.)
Description: Science teachers at both the elementary and secondary levels may appreciate this collection of learning and education resources from the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL). This project offers a variety of resources geared toward learning about wildlife, plants, and biodiversity. For example, biodiversity cards offer visitors "a fun way to share and learn about the traits or characteristics of organisms," and EOL provides pre-made cards as well as tutorials and tools to make your own as a classroom project. Biodiversity cards can also be incorporated into EOL's numerous lesson plans, which are aligned with NGSS standards and organized by grade level for students from grades 2-12. These lessons are built around themes such as classification, science skills, and energy flow. Teachers may also be interested in EOL's educational podcasts, each episode of which is about five minutes long and features an interview with a scientist about one species. Finally, to help situate biodiversity in its geographical context, EOL also provides several Google Earth video tours (accompanied by downloadable KMZ files) on topics such as Arctic tern migrations and invasive marine algae.
