Inside Scoop on Farms

http://library.thinkquest.org/TQ0312380

*****


“Looking for farm information for a school report? Or just love farms, and things that mooooo?
You have come to the right place!” Dairy, livestock, poultry and crop farming are all covered in this lower-division grand prize winner written by four eleven-year old boys. Although none of the team members live on farms, their research involving visiting some for hands-on learning and photo shoots. In addition to the original articles, the site includes lots of links to farm-related games, puzzles and coloring pages.



The German Tutor

http://library.thinkquest.org/TQ0313222

****


Creating a collection of interactive German lessons for both English and Spanish speakers won this high-school team a second place prize. The site is organized so that it can be used sequentially as a complete introduction to German, or randomly, jumping to specific units as you need them. To study the units in sequence, simply follow the left-hand menu from Diagnosis to Lessons. For a quick overview of German pronunciation and grammar, try the “compressed tutorial” German on the Go!



Of Mind and Matter: The Mystery of the Human Brain

http://library.thinkquest.org/TQ0312238

*****


Three young men from Connecticut won the high-school grand prize with this biology entry about the human brain. Starting with anatomy and function, and progressing to disorders and psychology, this site is well-written, has a great design and is peppered with interactivity. My favorite clicks are found in Interact, which provides a complete list of all the site’s quizzes, polls, and rich-media illustrations and games.
