Get tangled up in this month's Spotlight, "The Spider Web." Learn about various kinds of spiders, what they look like, where they live, and whether or not they are harmful. This is all about arachnids!

The doors to the "inQuiry Attic" wheel open to reveal the story of America's earliest prized athletes: bicyclists. Learn about some of the very first sports stars in "Cycle...of Heroes."

"Minutes from ME" suggests some "PC Activities For Emergent Readers." Learn a few techniques to use with students just learning to read and write.

The Wired @ School teachers have contributed three more wonderful resources for your education and enjoyment.

Gail Watson presents "Computer Labs." Discover the benefits of having them at the elementary school level; you'll be amazed at the skills students can acquire!

Paul Myers gives us "Computer Drawing and Animation," a tutorial that will help teachers and students turn still images into life-like creations.

Carla Schutte asks "Have you seen the Wind?" in this resource that combines educational use of the Internet with a collection of online materials about hurricanes, tornadoes, wind, and other weather.

The month of May brings Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day, and Memorial Day. Learn why these are a few "Great Dates" to celebrate.
