Barbara J. Feldman
Dear Barbara,

Yesterday I was struck by a muse, and changed the SharingLinks.com tagline to “Save Links. Share Links. Discover Links.”
I added it to the logo, replacing the old tagline of “All Your Bookmarks in One Easy Place.”

I am hoping the new one better describes the three benefits of SharingLinks. I refined it further with this description:

** Save links and access them from any computer anywhere.
** Share links with friends, students and co-workers.
** Discover links posted by other educators and parents.

What do you think? Is this an improvement in communicating the purpose of the SharingLinks site?

Many readers have enjoyed the SharingLinks hotlists I have shared in the past, so here’s one for Thanksgiving, sorted by link popularity:

See ya on the Net,

Science Fair Ideas Printable (** for premium members only)
http://www.surfnetkids.com/printables/science_fair_ideas.pdf

Fretting over your science fair project? Having trouble coming up with an idea that interests you? Jumpstart your creative thinking by browsing through these science fair sites that list hundreds of projects, along with tips on choosing one that’s right for you.

All Science Fair Projects
http://all-science-fair-projects.com/
****
All Science Fair Projects is a web directory of 500 science fair projects for elementary, middle and high school. The project ideas are searchable by keyword, difficulty and category; and browsable by topic. Each project page includes a short description, and an external link to the project. Use the link labeled “View 3rd Party Site.” If that fails, try the cached view instead. Additional resources include a science fair forum staffed by science mentors, and helpful tips from the Science Fair Coach.

Cool Science Projects
http://www.cool-science-projects.com/
****
“Do you have a hobby? Do you enjoy doing something? If you do (and I’m sure there is something you really enjoy), then you already have an idea for a project – you just don’t know it yet ” Begin at Ideas for some insight on how to turn your hobby into a science project. For more concrete suggestions (“Why does a prism create a rainbow pattern of light?”) jump ahead to the grade-level idea pages.

Discovery Education: Elmer’s Science Fair Central

*****
After perusing the 250 Project Ideas, I recommend the “Soup to Nuts Handbook” written by Janice Van Cleve, author of more than forty books on science and science fairs. “A science project is like a mystery in which you are the detective searching for answers. Science projects let you practice and exhibit your detective skills. You not only get to select which mystery to solve, but you can creatively design methods for uncovering clues that will lead to the final revelation of who, what, when, where, how, and why.”
