    I like middleschoolscience.com She also has some links on there for other useful science websites!

    Another good one:

    I'm just beginning to find all of the science resources since this is my first year teaching just science. Helpful post! :thanks:

    Thank you for sharing, LMT. This year will be also my first time teaching science (well actually teaching period).

    I was told about an online source where you can pick animations of certain scientific concepts to show the kids and manipulate the variables to show different things. For example, they have one example where a kid is skate boarding back and forth. The force, friction, and gravity can be adjusted to show the differences in motion. For instance, parameters can be adjusted in a way that shows what it would like if the kid was skateboarding on the moon.

    I just can't remember the website. It's a collection of physics and biology animation.

    Also found this game called CellCraft on Carolina:

    http://www.carolina.com/category/teacher+resources/interactive+science+games+and+simulations.do

    "CellCraft is a state of the art game that invites students to delve into the world of the cell, learning about how a cell functions while helping it survive in hostile environments. The student will gain an understanding of important molecules such as glucose and ATP, as well as a variety of cellular organelles, while going through an entertaining story guided by Platypus scientists in need of help. The game encourages students to balance resources and grow a robust cell in order to fight off cold, starvation, and viruses."
