Website of the Week: EEK!

This week's website is EEK! (Environmental Education for Kids!), an electronic magazine for children by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. Are you a kid? Do you like to write about nature or draw pictures of animals? Visit Wanted: Kid Artists and Writers to learn where to send your drawings and observations about nature or outdoor recreation, along with where to share your Big Fish Stories. (I especially like Ronnie's story of The Pole That Got Away.)

Learn how to make a recycled bead bracelet, an ice luminary, a gourd birdhouse, and more at EEK's Rainy Day Activity Page. My favorite activity, owing to my previous career as a hazardous waste investigator, is the Edible Aquifer. (It looks tasty, too!) The EEK! Teacher Pages include Teaching Activities in language arts, math, social studies, and, of course, science.
