Louis Pasteur for Kids

December 21, 2011 -- Submitted by anonymous.

This site has some really great information and one of the best English resources for the life and work of Louis Pasteur I have found on the internet. I have used this site several times for reports on bacteria, biology and the biography of Pasteur. I think it would be good for you to have on your site too!

TJ & Pals

TJ & Pals is unique and different, with original animated characters. I found this refreshing because over all I was a little tired of the over stimulation the gremlins get from USUAL suspects. The site offers an abundance of entertaining activities. Most of the games can be enjoyed free, such as Seek and Find, Art Studio, Stories for Kids, Jigsaw Puzzles, and many more. The girls really loved these games. They were easy enough for them to navigate (proper level selected of course). The buttons were large and obvious, so the girls could easily distinguish their functionality. I found that I, as a parent, had to interfere (ie – help) a lot less than many of their other computer games (HUGE PLUS). The girls navigated through the game pretty much on their own easily.

This is my daughter, Rhea’s blog. All the content in the blog is written/drawn by Rhea. Rhea is seven years old and she is in the second grade. Through her blog, Rhea showcases her stories, poems, drawings, book reports and articles on topics that interest her. The blog is a great way of stimulating her creativity. It also helps in improving her writing and reading skills. The website is named “RheaDaVinvi” after “Leonardo Da Vinci”, who was probably the most multi-talented person who ever lived.
