Glacier
What's it like at the bottom of the world? Courageous scientists are living in remote environmental research stations on Antarctica to help us find out. This extensive website offers information about the study and exploration of the South Pole, including detailed information on weather, land, oceans, and space.

Neuroscience for Kids
Neuroscience made easy? Can it be possible? This website, created "for elementary and secondary school students and teachers who would like to learn more about the nervous system," seems to prove so. Activities and experiments are provided to help learners (of any age) better understand the human brain and spinal cord.

Explorers of the World
Throughout history, there have been people who practiced the belief that dreams can be achieved. This excellent website introduces us to "those who dare to dream...those who dare to challenge the boundaries of space, time, ignorance, and science." You'll find an extensive collection of student-produced biographies of dream-achievers. You may even be inspired to try some exploring of your own.

Math Forum: Elementary Teachers' Place
The Math Forum offers great connections to support math instruction in your classroom. Their website is worth a visit everyday.

Deserts of Our World
OneWorld Magazine would like you to experience the diversity and cultural richness of the world's deserts, if only virtually. They bring you a selection of articles, paintings, sculptures, poems, and photographs of men and women who have been challenged by the uniqueness of a desert, defeated by its dimensions, rewarded by its remoteness.
