Surfing the Net with Kids FREE Newsletter
#1. March 23, 2011
This has been such a great week. My daughter is home from college for spring break, and brought three college friends with her. Unfortunately, Mother Nature didn’t hold up her end of the Sunny Southern California bargain, because instead of sunshine and beach weather, she gave us rain and hail. Not exactly what these east coast girls were looking for, but I still am having a great time with them around.
Despite this wonderful distraction, I was still able to get a little work done on some of my new sites. The newest one, Math Games: Fun!, is almost, almost done, but has a feature I wanted to let you know about today: a Math Worksheet Generator that creates both interactive quizzes (with one-click scoring) and printable math worksheets.
Could you go and take a look, and do me the favor of feedback and comments?
If you want to reply in private, go ahead and hit return on this email. Otherwise, you can post your feedback on my blog: Math Worksheet Generator and Rainstorms.
See ya on the Net,

"Surfing the Net with Kids"

Zoology Printable (** for premium members only)
Zoology is the branch of biology that studies animal life. Whether you are looking for cute animal pictures to delight your preschooler, or are researching a high-school biology report, these animal kingdom sites should fit the bill.
American Museum of Natural History: Ology: Zoology
The kids’ section of the American Museum of National History (for elementary and middle-school kids) covers all kinds of “ology” including anthropology, marine biology, palenotology and this zoology section. Visit to explore Extreme Mammals, Butterfly Kingdom, or to make a horse gait flipbook. With quizzes, sing-alongs, crafts projects, experiments and online games, this engaging site is a sure hit.
The FieldGuides to more than 5,500 species of animals and plants are the core content here at eNature. The species are searchable by keyword, color, size, region and even zip code! For kid stuff, mouse on over to Fun & Games, where you’ll find quizzes (Do you know scat?) and species flash cards to embed on your own website. These flash cards are snippets of code you can paste on your website or blog that will display a photo and a description of an animal. Great for online school reports or just for showing off your favorite animals.
National Geographic: Animals
Being a cat person, the first feature that grabbed my attention was Little Kitties for Big Cats. Want to see your little kitty featured on the site? Share a snapshot of your cat, along with a minimum $5 donation to National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative. Cute, cute ,cute, and all for a good cause! Other worthwhile sections include Animals A-Z (quick fact pages) and the animal photo gallery.
