Hello From Online Educator,

Here are the five Education Super Sites for the week of April 26, 1997 from The Online Educator, creators of "Point, Click and Teach.".

1. SCIENCE

Blast your kids' imaginations into space with NEXT STOP: MARS.

This well-done site produced by Time for Kids (Time Magazine) delivers a lot of good information about the red planet packaged specifically for younger children. Your students will discover fun facts about the planet and have fun taking the Mars Challenge quiz.

2. HISTORY

Turn your students into archaeologists by visiting THE LOST CITY.

The year is A.D. 5000. Your intrepid group of explorers have stumbled upon an ancient lost city once known as Washington, D.C. What will you find beneath the layers of dirt and rubble? Your students will enjoy this interesting lesson plan presented by The Discovery Channel.

3. TOOLS FOR TEACHERS

Take a break from your work and chuckle with the funny stories collected in

TEACHER TALES.

Question: What is one horsepower? Answer: One horspower is the amount of energy it takes to drag a horse 500 feet in one second. A vibration is a motion that cannot make up its mind which way it wants to go. The wind is like the air, only pushier. These examples of real test answers are just a few of the funny things you'll read at Teacher Tales. There are sections on parents, teachers and even principals. Read classroom humor from your colleagues around the world and submit your own.

4. RECESS

Help your students avoid accidents while riding their bikes with safety tips from the BMHA CYCLING SAFETY HOME PAGE.

Many students ride their bikes to school. Many more ride for fun around their neighborhoods after school and on weekends. Help them learn some important safety tips with this informative page, which contains links to many other related Internet sites. With summer fast approaching, the topic of bike safety seems like a natural bulletin board display.

5. HEALTH

Help create the best possible environment at school with CREATING SAFE AND DRUG-FREE SCHOOLS.

Keeping your students from dropping out of school, rescuing at-risk students, preventing weapons on campus and establishing mentoring programs are just a few of the topics covered in this informative publication published by the U.S. Department of Education. You'll especially like the the sections of action steps for schools, parents, local businesses and students. They will get you moving in the right direction fast.
