Science Netlinks is a great resource website for science teachers. I came across it while I was compiling a list of the best science games for students. Science NetLinks is a project of the Directorate for Education and Human Resources Programs of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. At Science NetLinks, you’ll find teaching tools, interactives, podcasts, and hands-on activities, and all of it is free! Science Netlinks provides a wide variety of science lesson plans and other materials that teachers can use with their students in class.
Science Netlinks is free and does not require any registration. To use it, head over to its main page and use the search bar to look for science materials relevant to the grade you teach. You can search for content using grades from k-12, using themes such as : earth science, technology, astronomy, biology, health. You can also search content for lessons, tools, collections, after school resources and science updates.
All of the resources are Internet based and free to everyone. Lessons and activities can be printed or used online. Many of the interactives, esheets, and tools work great on an interactive white board or in a computer lab. All of the resources are designed to be delivered in a variety of formats and classroom settings.
