[ Spotlighting | How Puzzling | Quite Amazing

volume three, issue five
Consider the matter of the human mind. What makes human thought unique? How does the human mind compare to the mind of other animals? How is the human mind like a computer? These questions form the premise of the latest book by science author James Trefil. The book's title asks the question "Are We Unique?" This month's Spotlight features some complementary resources to help you use Trefil's book in K-8 science classrooms.

Embrace space on May, 22, officially designated as Space Day. Human beings can see farther and clearer than ever before in the history of mankind. That's quite amazing!

On Sunday, May 11, you should be Celebrating Mom or submitting your own Thoughts. Visit Mother's Day on The Net for all of your holiday needs.

Later in the month, you'll find all of the resources you need to celebrate Memorial Day online. From the American Revolutionary War to the Persian Gulf War, you'll find resources to help you remember those who served.
