It's RoadKill Time!

It's slightly morbid, but it's science. Since 1993, students have been learning about animals, their habitats, and science through the RoadKill site. Students record sightings of roadkill and upload their recordings. The result is an interesting students-as-scientists database. Activities are also included to help teachers lead students through the analysis of the roadkill data. Take a look.

New York Philharmonic KidZone

The New York Philharmonic KidZone is an outstanding music education site. Kids can learn about the oboe, the clarinet, and famous composers, But what makes this site unique is the activities in the Game Room. Try the "Minuet Mixer"with it's Garage Band-like tools or "Orchestration Station" to learn how the pieces of music sound with different instruments. A great and worthwhile tool.
