1. Social Studies ........ I may be completely biased here, but if you want a lesson about the Galapagos Islands, National Geographic is the first place to turn. Yes, I love them because my photo was in National Geographic in an article about the Galapagos Islands. I can't help myself.

2. Science ........ Wow! Finding lessons about the Galapagos Islands is much easier than other places I have traveled. Here's what the Discovery Education has to offer. There is always big discussion on the Galapagos Islands about introduced species. And, fyi, blackberries are one of the problem plants introduced to Floreana.

3. Science ........ I recognize the logo after working at the Charles Darwin Foundation. That tortoise is everywhere. This Galapagos Conservacy advertises books and lesson for purchace to enhance your classroom experience about the Galapagos. Lessons are aimed at an elementary audience. They also welcome submissions of successful lessons for possible posting on their site.

4. Multi-Disciplinary ........ PBS hosted a competition for teachers to create lessons on the Galapagos Islands. Winning lessons are posted on their site.

5. Art ........ Of course, you'd expect Crayola to have an art lesson related to the Galapagos Islands!

6. Science ........ The National Science Teacher Association (NSTA) had a beautiful website for teaching some of the history and science of the Galapagos Islands.
