British Painting
     provides a brief history of painting in Britain during the
     18th and 19th centuries, when English artists began developing
     their own styles in marine, allegorical, and landscape
     painting.  Paintings are organized in "online tours" of
     British conversation pieces and portraits, landscapes of
     Constable and Turner, the Royal Academy of Art, British and
     American grand manner portraits, and British and American
     history paintings.  (NGA)

Folktales In The Classroom
     Historians are great at telling linear stories and written narratives
     that have a specific point of view, and an agenda. Historians try
     to make define a moment in time with a certain set of facts while
     they leave out others. Now with the advent of web 2.0 pictures
     might prove to be history's next frontier. The Internet uses pictures
     to show off the natural social process that history actually is.


National American Indian Heritage Month
     features dozens of historic sites, lesson plans, and travel
     itineraries for learning about Native American history.  Find
     out about Haida totem poles, village life in Hidatsa and
     Mandan tribes on the plains, sacred ceremonial sites for the
     Yoeme (Yaqui) people, daily life of the Pueblo Indians, mounds
     of Mississippi and the Ohio River Valley, and more.  (NPS)


Doing Science: The Process of Scientific Inquiry
     helps students understand the basics of scientific inquiry.
     Lessons progress from what students already know about
     scientific inquiry, or think they know, toward a more complete
     and accurate perspective.  Activities include distinguishing
     questions that can be tested by a scientific investigation
     from those that cannot and participating in a computer-based
     scientific investigation as members of a fictitious community
     health department.  (NIH)

Learning About Renewable Energy
     provides basic information about solar, wind, biomass,
     hydrogen, and geothermal power.  See a video on how solar
     panels work.  Learn about advanced vehicles, alternative
     fuels, energy delivery and storage, and more.  (DOE)

     explores careers in health and medical sciences.  See
     interviews with more than 70 professionals -- a chemist,
     dentist, dietician, epidemiologist, lab technologist, medical
     illustrator, microbiologist, nurse, pharmacist, social worker,
     veterinarian, and others.  Learn what their typical workday
     involves and why they chose their career.  Find out which
     careers match your interests and skills.  (NIH)

Lizards and Snakes Alive
     explores the world of squamates.  Learn how chameleons and
     iguanas rely on vision while other lizards, such as geckos,
     depend on smell (using their tongues).  See boas, mambas,
     cobras, geckos, skinks, and other squamates.  Watch an
     anaconda slither and a chameleon catch prey with its tongue.
     Hear rattlesnakes and a barking gecko.  (SI)
