This page is about five different types of energy. Each has a picture, so as to make one an idea of what it is, and an explanation.
After the explanation of the different types of energy, there is a paragraph saying that when energy is used it is changed into another type of energy, and it explains this with a short example.
In my opinion, I think that this page is a good one because of the explanations it gives, but it could improve a little by putting more information or somthing like that. (Antònia Galmés, 2nd ESO)
This page talks about the conservation of energy. It explains that energy cannot be created nor destroyed, it can only be transformed from one type to another.
There are two examples of a bulb, that changes electrical energy into light energy and into heat energy.
In my opinion, this page is a little bit too scientific for us, but for a person that has to study this unit, the example and the explanation are very clear. (Antònia Galmés, 2nd ESO)
On this web page we can find a lot of information about energy. On the left of the web page, there are some links to the story of energy, to science projects, to energy library, to games and puzzles, to search information and finally there is a link that takes you to other links about energy and other units and subjects.
In my opinion this web page is an interesting one, where you can find all about energy with clear definitions and explanations. (Joana Maria Galmés 2nd ESO)
On this web page we find the definition of matter and mass, the states of matter and the difference between elements and compounds. On the right hand side we find links to get further information about these subjects and also about solutions and mixtures.
In my opinion, this page is a very useful page, where you can find all you need to know about matter. (Joana Maria Galmés 2nd ESO)
This web page is very useful. Instead of asking someone to test you on the lesson you can read this web page and do the quiz. It’s fine. (Ignacio Glenny, 2nd ESO)
This web page has got a search engine where you write the formula of a substance and it explains what it is, its effects, and other particularities. I like this page, but it is a bit strange, and very difficult to understand. (Ignacio Glenny, 2nd ESO)
On this web page we can see an explanation about kinetic energy; there are also some difficult formulae, yet the definition is clear. I like the pictures and the information. (Ángela Patricia Morales, 2nd ESO)
This page contains all the properties of metals and non-metals: appearance, melting and boiling points, density, strength, malleability, ductility, heat conductivity, electrical conductivity and nature of oxides.
In my opinion, it could be better, because it only explains the properties of metals and non-metals, but I think that they are well explained, so it is good to study from this page. (Antònia Galmés, 2nd ESO)
When you open this page, you can see the pH scale with the numbers and their colours. Below the pH scale, there are three links: litmus reactions, universal indicator reactions and neutralisation. If you click on one of them, you go to another page that is a little explanation of the unit you have clicked, and under the explanation, you have things (beaker, universal indicator paper, ...) and substances (vinegar, oven cleaner, ...) and you have to say if they are acids or an alkalis, and then, test them.
In my opinion, these page is very good because you can study while you are ‘playing’. (Antònia Galmés, 2nd ESO)
This web page talks about matter and, by clicking on a little picture from the periodic table, we are able to see it bigger and some information about it is given. Furthermore, we can also find information on chemical reactions and some examples about it. Finally, there is a part where exercises on the topic can be found.
In my opinion, this page is a good page because there are a lot of pictures, which are very useful and the definitions are very clear. (Joana Maria Galmés 2nd ESO)
In this web page we can find information about the characteristics of pure substances, elements, compounds, metals and non-metals. Apart from that, more definitions about acids, bases, salts, solutions and mixtures are given. Finally, we can click on ‘Physical and chemical properties of substances’ to see a demonstration about it.
In my opinion, this page is an interesting page. There are no pictures, but the definitions are short and you can understand them easily. (Joana Maria Galmés 2nd ESO)
This web page explains what chemical reactions are, how they take place, and it contains a quiz to test what you have learnt reading the web page. This web page is really useful. (Ignacio Glenny, 2nd ESO)
This web page is about chemical reactions, we can find a definition of what a chemical reaction is. We can also find information about the periodic table.
It also explains things like the fact that Sir William Ramsay discovered the elements: Helium, Reos, Argon, Kypton and Xeon; or the chemical bond between elements; or even the reactions that explain changes in temperature.
I like this web page because it explains the concepts that we have learnt in class clearly. (Ángela Patricia Morales, 2nd ESO)
This page talks about photosynthesis and how important it is. The page explains how the photosynthesis takes place. There are images of a plant that is doing the photosynthesis.
On the top left-hand side of the page, there are some links about photosynthesis and energy: how energy travels through life, photosynthesis basics, photosynthetic parts in a leaf, food chains, energy pyramids, the mystery in everything, do all plants use CO2?
In my opinion, it is a nice page that explains some important things. (Antònia Galmés, 2nd ESO)
This page talks about autotrophic nutrition. It explains what autotrophic nutrition is and the organisms which have autotrophic nutrition. It says where it takes place. At the bottom of the page there are some links about: heterotrophic nutrition, enzymes, digestion, transport, nervous system, homeostasis, dissociation curves, ecology definitions, genetics definitions and essays.
In my opinion, it is a very nice site because it has a lot of information, but for us, only a part is okay because the other part is too scientific and we have not studied it. (Antònia Galmés, 2nd ESO)
On this page we can find all about nutrition, here you have some examples:
Nutrition basics, healthy eating, calories, food pyramids, protein sources, carbohydrates and fibre, kid’s nutrition...
In addition to this you can see some videos, advice, a community forum... Looking at this page, you can learn things about nutrition, with clear definitions. (Joana Maria Galmés 2nd ESO)
This page talks about ecosystems, biomes and habitats. The page explains how big an ecosystem can be, the different layers that there are in the ecosystems, what a habitat is, what a biome is, and other things.
Below each paragraph, there are some links that take you to another page to explain about the previous paragraph, for example, the definition of ecosystems. Under these links, there are activities about the things previosly explained.
In my opinion, it is a very nice page that explains important things, and you can learn by doing an activity for each paragraph. (Antònia Galmés, 2nd ESO)
This page talks about the hierarchy of life. It explains the structure that the hierarchy of life has. In the page, there are some examples and the special consideration of each level. It explains nine levels, that are:
Ecosystem, community, population, organism, organ system, organ, tissue, cell and molecule.
The last paragraph of the page, explais what occurs at the DNA level affecting other properties at the cellular and organism level.
I like the page because it explains the hierarchy of life and it sets some examples. (Antònia Galmés, 2nd ESO)
This web page is about energy. We can find how energy is passed from the sun to other organisms. We can also find the classification of living things and an activity about it.
In my opinion this page is a good way to understand all about energy. Looking at the pictures, you get an idea of what it is about and also the texts are simple, and you understand them easily. (Joana Maria Galmés 2nd ESO)
This web page has information about ecosystems. We can find the definition of what an ecosystem is and what a biome is. On the left part of the web page, there are some links to different biomes.

On this web the importance of the photosynthesis for everyone is explained: it provides oxygen to us and we could have an atom or molecule that in the past formed part of a dinosaur. (Ignacio Glenny, 2nd ESO)
On this web page we can find information about neurons, how many we have in our brain, all their parts, their use and some types (interneuron, motor neuron and sensory neuron). (Ignacio Glenny, 2nd ESO)
This page is about forces, forces in action. On this page, there are no explanations, there are only activities. There is an activity that tells you to move a truck observing what is happening and writing down what you have observed. At the bottom, one can find all the solutions to the activity and it tells you if you have done it right or wrong.
In my opinion, it is a nice page, because you can observe what happens in every situation only by clicking on the buttons and watching what happens, typing the results, and then, looking which are right or wrong. (Antònia Galmés, 2nd ESO)
This page talks about balanced and unbalanced forces. At the begining of the page it explains what a force is, and how a force can occur (balanced or unbalanced force). Then, it explains two examples of balanced forces: an arm wrestling competition with someone and a tug of war, and it says why this happens. After these two examples of balanced forces, there are three examples of unbalanced forces. At the end of the page, there are some problems to practice what has been explained before about balanced and unbalanced forces.
In my opinion, this page is a good one to learn about balanced and unbalanced forces, because there are examples, and I think that with examples you undersand it better, and because it doesn’t use difficult words and examples. (Antònia Galmés, 2nd ESO)
On this web page, we can find all about forces. It is divided in four lessons. In the first lesson, we can find Newton's First Law, Inertia and Mass, State of Motion and Balanced and Unbalanced Forces. In the second lesson, we can find the meaning of force, types of forces, free-body diagrams and determining the net force. In the third lesson we can see Newton's Second Law, The Big Misconception, Finding Acceleration, Finding Individual Forces and Free Fall and Air Resistance. In the fourth lesson, we can click on Newton’s third law and on Action and Reaction Force Pairs.
In my opinion, this web page is an interesting page, to understand the unit of forces. On the web page, you can find a lot of information about forces, but you can click where you want, so you can have information about what you want. (Joana Maria Galmés 2nd ESO)
Here you can find a lot of information about forces, and there are experiments, where you can prove how the force works, with a lot of objects. I think that this web page is very good, because you can learn in a fun way, and do experiments without a lab. (Ignacio Glenny, 2nd ESO)
Here it speaks a lot about forces, gives you some examples of how they work with images and it explains the interactions caused by the forces and their types. The forces explained on this web page are weight or gravitational force, electromagnetism, nuclear forces. This web page is very interesting; it is notmuch fun, but it explains forces in a very scientific way. (Ignacio Glenny, 2nd ESO)
This web page explains us the difference between balanced and unbalanced forces. And it also has an experiment to prove the explanation. I like it because I understand all the information and we can see some pictures about balanced and unbalanced forces. (Ángela Patricia Morales, 2nd ESO)
This page is interesting because it explains what gravitational force is and what gravity is , aswell as explaining the difference between them very well. It includes some examples and images about it. I like it very much because I understand everything and the examples arevery well explained. (Ángela Patricia Morales, 2nd ESO)
Earth’s internal and external energy http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/geology/tectonics.html
This web page is about the movement of plates. It has some moving pictures that show their movement.
I like it because the pictures are the easiest way to understand something. (by Raquel Schulz 2nd ESO)
This page explains the Greenhouse Effect. It explains which gases cause this phenomenon and how much colder would the earth be without the Greenhouse Effect.
Below the definition of the Greenhouse Effect, there is a photo that represents a greenhouse, and it explains that it works exactly the same as the Greenhouse Effect.
There is another photo of the Greenhouse Effect in the atmosphere. It says that the Greenhouse Effect is important because without it, the Earth would not be warmer enough for humans to live, but if it becomes stronger, it may cause problems for humans, animals and plants.
At the left side of these page, there are some links about the climate, and at the top of the page, there is a link of games, to help us find out how much we know about Climate Change.
In my opinion, this page is fine because it explains the Greenhouse Effect, first with the example of a greenhouse, and then, with the atmosphere. (Antònia Galmés, 2nd ESO)
This page explains plate tectonics. It says that it is a new theory. According to this theory, they think that the Earth's surface is broken into large plates, and the size and the position of the plates changes over time.
It explains that when they move against each other, there are sites of intense geologic activity, such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and mountain building. It says that there are different locations and types of plate boundaries.
In my opinion, this page is a little poor but to begin a unit or to briefly explain what plate tectonics are, it is fine. (Antònia Galmés, 2nd ESO)
On this web page we can find information about tectonic plates, about earthquakes and how the movement of tectonic plates produces an earthquake. We can also find information about the inner layers of the Earth and their composition.
In my opinion, this web page is interesting. (Joana Maria Galmés 2nd ESO)
It is an Acrobat Reader document, that explains how Pangea was, how the earth has changed its shape, from that time to nowadays, etc… I like this page, because it explains the “history” of our planet. (Ignacio Glenny, 2nd ESO)
It is an Acrobat Reader document that explains the relationship between the Sun and the Earth. I think that this page is very useful, because it is easy to understand. (Ignacio Glenny, 2nd ESO)
This web page is about Earthquakes. I like it very much because it clearly explains what an Earthquake is and how it is produced. Its contents include an introduction and links to Earthquakes in History, Where Earthquakes Occur, Volcanoes and Earthquakes and Predicting Earthquakes.
I like this web very much because the explanations are clear. (Ángela Patricia Morales, 2nd ESO)
I chose this web page because the information is clear and it explains the danger of living beside a plate boundary and it has some very interesting photos. Its contents include things like Divergent Boundaries, Transform Boundaries, Convergent Boundaries or Are There Dangerous Places to Live? (Ángela Patricia Morales, 2
