Science NetLinks is a premier K-12 science education resource produced by 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!
All of the resources are Internet based, so the lessons and activities can be printed or used online. Many of the interactives, worksheets, 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.
Science NetLinks presents standards-based lesson plans that incorporate reviewed Internet resources, and can be selected according to specific learning goals and grade ranges. Each lesson is tied to at least one learning goal and uses research-based instructional strategies that support student learning. The lessons are written for the teacher, but include student-ready materials such as worksheets, or online worksheets that enable students to engage directly in Internet activities.
The career information includes a series from the ACS Spellbound – How Kids Become Scientists. This video series tells the stories of chemist’s early experiences that put them on the role of working in science.
There is also a special section from Science News that provides the latest news on what’s happening in the world of science.
