World-Wide Web Introduction

Web Scavenger Hunt - Learn the Web through using the Web. Athena, a wonderful Earth science website sponsored by NASA, has put together a neat scavenger hunt for teachers and students to use in order to get accustomed to using the Internet. The site send a user to look at current events, sports and entertainment, resources and museums, education sites, real-time data sites, and takes them on web searches. A great idea!

Surfing the Net with Kids Online Index - Barbara Feldman, a teacher, has put together a great site for educational kids stuff on the web. This is what she has to say about it, "There are many sites to choose from on the Internet, but searching for educational content takes patience. Maybe getting there is supposed to be half the fun, but for my kids, it's the destination that counts. Here are my favorite destination sites for kids. They are reviewed, rated and organized by topic." http://www.surfnetkids.com/
