I used to be a computer programmer, and sometimes the urge to dabble a little with my site just overcomes me. I should be smart enough to leave the programming to others, but here’s a little something I whipped up this week that I think is pretty cool.
It’s a listing of Surfnetkids’ top three most popular topics and games, updated hourly. And you can see it at the top of most Surfnetkids pages (in the upper-right hand corner.)

See ya on the Net,

#2. Attention Teachers and Homeschoolers
Ignite your your students’ desire to learn with
ready-made Internet handouts (while saving hours
usually spent on tedious internet searching.)

Wolves Printable (** for premium members only)
Fairy tales and folklore have given the wolf a bad rap. But their modern-day tale has a happy ending. After years of extinction in the continental United States, wolves were successfully reintroduced into Yellowstone Park and central Idaho in 1995 and 1996. Learn more about the wolf at these sites.
Carl Cook Photography: Wolves
Carl Cook served on the Board of Directors at Wolf Haven, a nonprofit wildlife sanctuary near Tenino, Washington, for three years. As a photojournalist and naturalist, he studied the wolves and documented their behavior. “Over time, many of the wolves came to know me, and in a few cases, relationships of mutual trust developed. The photographs presented here are samples from my study, The Wolves At Your Door, an exhibit last shown at Seattle’s Pacific Science Center in 1988.”
International Wolf Center: Just for Kids
The International Wolf Center advocates for wolf survival “by teaching about wolves, their relationship to wild lands and the human role in their future.” The kids pages contain wolf factoids, a few articles, and a handful of games and coloring pages. Additional educational resources can be found in the grown-up site by mousing over to Learn. Don’t miss Wolf Basics (especially the Wolf Quiz) or Educators (highlight is the Gray Wolves, Gray Matter interactive curriculum.)
National Geographic Wolves
“A wolf’s community its pack, its prey, and its competitors is dynamic and delicate. The survival of these controversial predators hinges on both natural and human forces. Explore these forces and see how they touch wolves, elk, cattle, and coyotes.” The story is told through the use of amazing photographs and powerful words. It includes a K-12 activity guide for both families and classrooms.
