Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Connecting science lessons to the real world can be greatly facilitated by this collection of ninety-two Internet Science units. Each unit includes an introduction and a list web sites. Most also include research questions and literature resources, plus activities and projects. The first chapter, "Science and the Internet," presents a succinct discussion of how science instruction can be extended and enhanced by using resources available on the Internet. Chapter two, "The Internet and Instruction," presents a model for Internet research, discusses implementation, and lists useful search engines. Chapter three, "How to Use This Book," tells how to get the most from this guide. Chapters four through eight present Internet science units for life science, physical science, earth science, space science, and the human body. An index is provided. A great resource for the classroom or for home schooling (ages 10-14). 2000, Libraries Unlimited, Inc., $27.50. Ages Adult. Reviewer: M. Henebry SOURCE: Parent Council Volume 8
School Library Journal
Adding the Internet to classroom lessons can be a daunting task for teachers and librarians. The tried-and-true methods of evaluating traditional materials (books, magazines, videos) don't translate as easily to Web sites. Fredericks offers not only lists of Web sites, but also ideas on how to use the Internet as part of a larger classroom or research activity. Part one is fairly general, including an introduction to teaching science, as well as tips on teaching with online resources. Included are Web sites that offer lesson plans, suggested search engines, and an example of a parental consent form. The second part, which makes up the bulk of the book, offers science units. Each one focuses on a particular subject area, covering specific topics in the life, physical, earth, and space sciences and the human body (sample subjects include food chains and webs, magnetism, volcanoes, asteroids, and the respiratory system). Each unit includes a list of Web sites, suggested research questions for students, a short bibliography, and a few activities. There is nothing extraordinary about this book, but it's a comprehensive guide for those who are new to the information superhighway, and it's refreshing to see that the author includes print material in his suggested lesson plans.-Dina Sherman, Brooklyn Children's Museum, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
