All living things are made up of cells, and a great way to introduce cytology (the study of cells) to children is through educational websites like CELLS Alive! Here’s more about them from their website:
CELLS alive! represents 30 years of capturing film and computer-enhanced images of living cells and organisms for education and medical research. The site has been available continuously and updated annually since May of 1994 and now hosts over 4 million visitors a year. All text, images, and layout are provided by me, Jim Sullivan, shown here with Boo and Bella. Every effort has been made to minimize errors or typos, but any you find on these pages are my doing as well.
The majority of the site is free of cost and registration for anyone with internet access. With up to 25,000 visitors a day during the school year, hosting costs are an issue. Students and teachers who purchase downloads for classroom use make this possible.
A stock video library for producers includes a range of subjects, both live recording and computer animation.
Once your kids have zoomed out from their microscopic learning adventure, activate their brain cells with a free 30 day trial of Reading Kingdom! You’ll be happy when you watch your little one(s) learn to read on their own through our award winning, patented program. We’ll see you soon!
