Title: Science NetLinks      Add Bookmark
Description: The American Association for the Advancement of Science's Science NetLinks strives to be a comprehensive ''homepage'' for K-12 science educators. At the heart of Science NetLinks are standards-based lesson plans that incorporate reviewed Internet resources, and can be selected according to specific benchmarks 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 student sheets (student reproducibles) or E-Sheets (online worksheets that enable students to engage directly in Internet activities). Science NetLinks is a member of the MarcoPolo consortium.
