Dear Barbara,

Yikes! The Daily Educational Quotes are broken, and I’ve been deluged with mail about them. Sorry if I have not been
able to get back to you personally, but yes, the Daily Quotes have not been going out.

The problem is with the database, and I have an expert looking at it tonight (Tuesday) and hopefully he’ll have it all fixed
before this reaches you on Wednesday.

If you are not signed up to receive my daily quotations email, you can learn more at:

See ya on the Net,

April 22, 2006 is the thirty-sixth celebration of Earth Day. This year’s theme is Climate Change as Earth Day Network ( http://www.earthday.net/resources/2006materials/ ) embarks on a three-year campaign focusing on solutions to global warming. Although ideally everyday should be Earth Day, the annual holiday presents the perfect opportunity to learn more about ecology and the environment.

*****
EcoKids is Canada’s environmental youth education program, and even though site membership is restricted to Canadian youth groups, there’s oodles of material for non-members. My favorite section is Play and Learn, with activities, slide shows, quizzes, games and PDF printables in topics such as the environment, science, nature, wildlife and energy. For example, did you know that every year thousands of frogs get squashed crossing roads to reach seasonal habitats? You can help by finding frog habitats that span busy roads and educating local drivers about the issue.

Kids Domain: Earth Day

****
“In 1963, former Senator Gaylord Nelson began to worry about our planet. (A senator is a person that the people of the United States have chosen to help make the laws.) Senator Nelson knew that our world was getting dirty and that many of our plants and animals were dying. He wondered why more people weren’t trying to solve these problems.” In addition to a short history of Earth Day, you’ll find Earth Day puzzles, postcards, games, activities, coloring pages, clip art, endangered animals to adopt, and (whew!) more.

Kids for Saving the Earth

***
Clinton Hill succumbed to cancer at age eleven, but before he died he channeled his passion for the environment into a kids’ club dedicated to saving planet Earth. Now, his mother runs the organization, which provides free online information and low-cost classroom materials through the mail. Best clicks are the activities found in the Action Programs, such as creating an event for International Migratory Bird Day on May 2 or having a used book sale to support Reading for the Earth month. When is Reading for the Earth month? Any month you choose!
