Master Human Anatomy

January 18th, 2022

Anatomy Arcade

(www.anatomyarcade.com/)

HSBC Member Pam M suggested an interactive website, Anatomy Arcade, which makes basic human anatomy come ALIVE through awesome free flash games, interactives and videos created by Ben Crossett a Science and Physical Education teacher at Glen Waverley Secondary College in Melbourne, Australia.

Anatomy Arcade is perfect for the novice teenager in the classroom, right through to students and professionals of health care looking for a fun way to revise.

The price and joy of Anatomy Arcade are the Signature games.

Crosswords are not for the beginner unless you use them like a web quest. The word searches are fun and easy for everyone.

Match Two games are a fun challenge for all and can build strong word/image associations.

Bigfish games with a medical, health and fitness focus.

There is a cost factor to part of this website.

Social Sciences Video & Current Events Newsletter!

November 29th, 2012

Hi! It’s Thursday, November 29, 2012 and time for Social Sciences at ClickSchooling!

Recommended Website:

Izzit.org

http://www.izzit.org

Age Range: 5-18 (Grades K-12, with parental supervision)

I just learned about this non-profit, NON-PARTISAN organization that provides teachers, educators, and homeschoolers with engaging educational videos and materials “to teach the next generation about the ideas, institutions, and benefits of a free society” and foster understanding and support for the foundational ideas of the U.S. republic, such as individual liberty, personal responsibility, and equality before the law.

The site offers a FREE membership program that includes a daily current events newsletter (with two lessons) and provides members with one free educational video (selected from the extensive video catalog) each year. You must register to receive the freebies. There is no shipping or handling charge to get the free DVD, they only require that you provide feedback via their online form.

This site also has a subscription membership that allows members to receive multiple free videos each year and access to “Current Events Lessons” that are archived at the website. But again, you don’t have to purchase a thing to get one free video each year, and the free newsletter with current events lessons and discussion questions.

The videos available at this website promote thoughtful discussion and respectful debate about issues and events to help young people become independent-minded, fully engaged citizens. As explained at the site:

“We ask students to think about the role of government and the importance of voluntary associations in promoting human flourishing. Students gain a greater appreciation for how a free society with a strong rule of law enables a diverse people to coexist, cooperate, and prosper.

“We encourage a healthy skepticism about authoritative claims, so that students learn to seek out evidence rather than accept assertions. In this way, young people develop the ability to use reason and common sense to evaluate the information they will encounter throughout their lives.”

Once you register, you can select a free Social Sciences video from their catalog that includes the following categories:

  • U.S. History & Government
  • World History & Geography
  • Business
  • Economics

BONUS! You’ll also find videos covering Health/Physical Education, Language Arts, Math, Music/Art, and Science/Technology that are aligned with common core educational standards.

ArtzEdge – Free Lessons in the Arts

The Kennedy Center: ArtsEdge Lessons

Age Range: 5-18 (Grades K-12)

In 2003, ClickSchooling featured The Kennedy Center’s ArtsEdge website. ClickScholar MaryAnna re-visited the site and said, “It has really improved — lots of multimedia including some interactives children can do independently.”

For those of you who enjoy in-depth, multi-disciplinary lesson plans – this site is for you! You’ll find hundreds of art-themed lessons on Dance, Music, Theater, and Visual Arts and many are integrated with other subjects such as Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, and Technology.

The lessons are divided into “Grade Bands” for K-4, 5-8, and 9-12. One could easily make the case that this site offers enough material for an entire year’s worth (or more) of free curriculum.

When you get to the site you’ll see a menu of lessons. Use the search mechanism on the left side of the page to sort the lessons by subject or grade range. Then, click on any lesson on the menu. A new page opens displaying the lesson overview, objectives, and instructional plan along with suggested activities and links to resources such as printable worksheets and other materials. Some of the lessons include an online interactive game.

You will be astounded by the scope and depth of the material provided. It is designed for classroom teachers but can be adapted by home educators. Review the lessons to prepare to present the material to your students in a way they will enjoy. High school students shouldn’t have any problem navigating these lessons independently, although parents (as always) should review the content to determine suitability.
