Dear Reader,

Yesterday was back-to-school for both my kids. I have big goals
for this school year. While my kids are applying themselves to
their studies, I plan to clean my desk off, organize my week so
I always have time to exercise and do my company’s accounting
paperwork, and write another ebook for my Surfnetkids audience
(I’m open to suggestions. What would you like to learn about?).

And, as a back-to-school promotion for those of you still reading,
I have two free sample Surfnetkids Printables to entice you to
join the Surfnetkids Printables Club. NOTE: the links to the free
Printables will expire on Friday September 5.

Animal Cams


Surfnetkids Animal Games

(Teach your kids how to make games just
like this with my step-by-step manual. )

Live cameras connected to the Web can be either incredibly fascinating or amazingly dull. Bypassing the absurd (such as The Peeling Paint Webcam, I’ve assembled a collection of animal cams that includes a virtual zoo, wild English badgers and a very busy bird feeder. All these images are live and some are only visible during daylight hours, so I’ve noted the time zone of each site.

Animal Planet



Discovery’s Animal Planet houses ten geographically-diverse critter cams all in one homepage. Crisscrossing the continent, they include six cameras focused on Siberian tigers in the privately owned TigerHomes animal sanctuary in Florida, sharks swimming in the Giant Ocean Tank exhibit at the New England Aquarium in Boston, and polar bears in the Montreal Biome. Because of differing time zones, each cam has its own optimal viewing time. (HT, PT, CT, ET)

BBC Nature Animals



During daylight hours, BBC focuses on a bird feeding station in the woodlands of North Somerset. At night, it’s Badgercam from Devon Badger Watch in Tiverton. What makes these cams special is all the additional information (about birds and badgers) that is just one click away. Be sure to visit the Devon Badger Watch homepage for details about the Barton badger clan. Remember, the posted viewing times are in England (Western European Time), and are four hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time. (WET)

National Zoo Webcams



With ten live animal cams, you don’t have to be in Washington D.C. to enjoy the National Zoo. For the best virtual zoo experience , visit when the staff is focusing the cameras on the animals. For the giant pandas Mei Xiang (newly pregnant) and Tian Tian, those times vary from day to day, but are posted here. For a look outside the zoo’s enclosures, at the many wild animals and plants that call Rock Creek National Park home, try the Backyard Biology cam. (ET)

=============> These site reviews (and more) are available as a two-page printable clickable classroom handout. Take a free look with a risk-free 10-day trial membership in Surfnetkids Printables Club.
