Wild-Eyed Alaska--an Educational Exploration into Alaskan Wildlife

For June 1, 2005:

Imagine traveling instantly to remote Gull Island in Kachemak Bay, Alaska, where puffins, kittiwakes, and other wildlife live during the brief but bright summer. Thanks to video cameras strategically placed on the island (and one under water just offshore!) under the auspices of the Pratt Museum in Homer, Alaska, from the Wild-Eyed Alaska Web site at you can view video footage of wild creatures such as these--birds and animals rarely seen by most students. A narration accompanies the video clips, desribing the animals and their actions, while additional facts about them appear on screen.

Fly over to Cyberbee for more great Web sites, lessons, and activities to use with students.
