NASA's site offers a lot of cool information for kids. Interactive
lessons will help keep your children interested in science. But one of
the best things they offer is the Design a Planet page.

First, interactive lessons explain what is needed to create a habitable
planet. This encompasses both biology and geology. After the few quick
lessons, your child can design his or her own planet. Finally, you'll
learn if the planet is able to support human life. Check it out at:

Note:  These links were sent for our benefit from a group of students of Mrs. McVey.  She wrote to thank us for our page and has used some of the information in her lesson plans.  The students asked her to write to me and send me their thanks.  In addition, they provided the above links as sites that they enjoy and thought that everyone might enjoy them as well.  (Cindy Stone, Web Mistress)

A group of Girl Scouts from Denver, Colorado found the above links useful when working on thier "Water Wonders" Badge.  As their scout leader wrote - "Right now they are exploring the world of water conservation!" and they thought that calling attention to water conservation in the bathroom would be useful as well.  (Cindy Stone, Web Mistress)
