Last week I showed off an example of the reading tag at SharingLinks.com. Today I thought I’d show off another tag: geography.
Here is a link to all the bookmarks tagged “geography” by Sharing Links users:
Explore the related tags (on the right- hand side), such as history, interactive, or writing. In addition to exploring the tags,
feel free to click on any of the usernames, especially those whose bookmarks interest you.
Our community already has quite a few stars, active members who are sharing and tagging dozens of sites for the benefit of our
entire Sharing Links community.
Remember, SharingLinks is still in beta, so membership is limited at this time. Yesterday we released an improved bookmark import tool, and we will probably have another
important update today. Those on the Sharing Links announcement list will get more details in a few days.
If you’d like to join us, you can get an Invitation Code via email by signing up for the Sharing Links announcement

See ya on the Net,

#3. Physical Fitness
by Barbara J. Feldman
Physical Fitness Printable (** for premium members only)
Attention! The Internet is closing in twenty minutes. Push yourself away from the computer, and go outside to play. If you run out of ideas or motivation, the following physical fitness sites will help. But remember, you only have twenty minutes to browse them. And then, you simply must get up from your seat and move!
BAM! Body and Mind
Boldly-colored BAM! Body and Mind is designed for kids nine to thirteen by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). With quizzes and games, BAM! encourages pre-teens to make healthy lifestyle choices, and also serves teachers with classroom activities linked to national science education standards. Highlights of the Physical Activity section are a quiz to determine which fitness activities best suit your style, and an interactive activity calendar to help plan your fitness week.
PE Central: Log It
Log It, an activity mileage log, is my fitness pick of the day. Designed to motivate kids to become physically active, Log It records up to 25,000 physical activity steps per day, the equivalent of twelve and a half miles. “In addition to recording their steps or miles, they can participate in a virtual hike across the USA with their class, be involved in class competitions vs. other classes, set daily goals, view their own personal step log, and compare their steps with other kids of the same age and gender.”
An educational program of the International Food Information Council (IFIC), Kidnetic.com is built for kids nine to twelve and their parents. The site is divided into four sections. Move is the one that focuses on physical activity or what they call “wet head games,” the kind that require you to leave your computer chair and actually run around and sweat. Kore is a game center (games such as timed jumping jacks and Chinese jump rope) and Betchacant is an email challenge to dare friends to beat you at an activity such as hopping on one foot.
