Webcams* give you a peek into the lives of birds, animals and sea life that you normally wouldn't be able to see. You might observe bald eagles raising a chick, or penguins swimming underwater. Some of these resources even come with lesson plans and activities and even the "how to"  become a citizen scientist.? This is just one list of many - find the webcam(s) that work best for you. Enjoy!
