Over the last few months I have added three different ways for Surfnetkids readers to share stuff. Although
I have mentioned them all at one time or another, I thought today that I would list them all at once.
1) Submit a Site Review
Your chance to tell me about a cool site you’ve created, or a great site that I overlooked.
2) Tell Us a Joke
Heard a funny one lately? See your name on our Jokes By Kids site and in the Jokes By Kids newsletter.
3) Submit a Craft Recipe
If you are crafty, we need your input at MakePlayDough.com.
Today is Flag Day in the States. Here are a few resources from my archives:

Giraffes Printable (** for premium members only)
Male giraffes (the tallest of all animals) can grow to more than eighteen feet tall, nearly five feet
taller than African elephants (the second tallest animal.) With their long legs, long neck, and
tawny brown patches, it would be easy to think the giraffe was a Dr. Seuss invention!
Unfortunately their numbers in the wild have been greatly reduced by hunting and habitat
encroachment. Today, most giraffes live in game preserves, national parks or zoos.
Cheyenne Mountain Zoo: Giraffe Cam
Between the hours of 9:15 AM and 5 PM (MST), you can watch a herd of twenty-two reticulated
giraffes live from the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, Colorado. You’ll find more
giraffe goodies on the Giraffe Facts link (look for the giraffe head in the left-hand column.)
Highlights are a giraffe birth photo sequence, and interesting tidbits about reticulated giraffes.
“They prefer to drink regularly, but can go without water for several days.”
Fohn.net: Giraffe Pictures and Facts
This giraffe site is a one-page collection of quotes, photos, and data collected from other sites. I
like it because it has giraffe photos in two popular sizes (1024 x 768 and 800 x 600) that can be
used as desktop wallpaper, and it provides links to other giraffe sources. For example, the photos
are from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Click to visit, and use the site search to find more
royalty-free giraffe photos for school reports or your website.
PBS: Nature: Tall Blondes
For years, scientists believed that giraffes were mute. Recently, however, they discovered that
giraffes do speak. They just do so in low-frequency sounds that we can not hear! Learn more
about “tall blondes” at this PBS website, companion to the television special narrated by giraffe
enthusiast and 20/20 news correspondent Lynn Sherr. Teachers will appreciate the lesson plans
for grades four through six. Everyone will find something of value in the Resources section (a
list of related websites and books.)
