YES I Can! Science
http://www.yesican-science.ca
GRADE LEVEL: K-12, Professional

CONTENT:
YES I Can! Science is a database of teacher resources, classroom activities, and lesson plans that support the Pan-Canadian K-12 Science Curriculum. It is hosted by the Faculty of Pure and Applied Sciences at York University and supported by Industry Canada's Schoolnet.

AESTHETICS:
This site is not very glossy, but it is easy to navigate and offers a complete and interesting list of lesson resources for just about every aspect of science. It is available in French and English.

ORGANIZATION:
Users can search the database by curriculum or resource keyword, subject area, or grade level. Online instructions for locating resources and navigating the database are available.

REVIEW:
Although this database was created to provide Canadian teachers with lessons and activities directly tied to Canadian curricula, science teachers everywhere will appreciate this resource. Users can easily adapt lessons, activities, assessment tools, and background information to fit the objectives of most K-12 science curricula. Be sure to check out Real-Time Science, which features "curriculum-specific activities, expeditions, and current events for your classroom." An archive of these special online expeditions includes all classroom resources and activities for use as a class project.
