With dozens of federal agencies contributing more than 1500 teaching and learning resources, FREE (Federal Resources for Educational Excellence) is one of the most popular Department of Education websites. Visitors interested in topics ranging from "Animals/Zoology" to the "Human Body" to "Medicine" will find that there is something for every level of learner and educator, and the general public will also find the offerings here quite compelling. The "Animals/Zoology" link offers visitors 35 resources to peruse, including one about the importance of biodiversity, called "Biodiversity Counts," that is aimed at middle school learners. This resource includes exercises that get kids into their backyards to gather plants and arthropods, and with the help of lesson plans, essays, and interactives, it will encourage them to analyze and apply their observations from the field. Visitors teaching students about medicine will find the National Science Digital Library to be a great source for multimedia STEM resources like video clips and lessons offered in a variety of languages, including Spanish and French.
