Every week, CM presents a brief collection of
noteworthy, useful, or just interesting sites we've turned up and actually
Please send us URLs and evaluations of any web-sites you think
deserve the exposure.
- ScienceWeb (Canadian Science)
- ScienceWeb is brought to you by the National Research Council of Canada and contains press releases and many other
links to keep you up-to-date on what's happening in Canadian Science.
- Cyber Jacques' CyberSeas Treasure Hunt
- Arr! This piratically themed cyberspace scavenger hunt introduces children to a variety of family-friendly web-sites (the language is salty, but not blue) on their way to winning prizes (downloadable animations). Last week's first clue required a visit to Thomas Jefferson's Home (and getting two links further in), but it's not exclusively American. Clue two was a fun U.K. page devoted to espionage.
- MayaQuest '96
"In the spring of 1995, a team of five explorers, lead by Dan Buettner, bicycled to ruins in Mexico and Central America, met with on-site archaeologists, and attempted to unlock one of the most perplexing mysteries: the collapse of the
ancient Maya civilization....
Beginning March 4, 1996 and continuing for six weeks, the same MayaQuest team members will reassemble for MayaQuest `96, brought to you by MECC. And YOU can join the team!"
It's too late to catch the start of this project, but the account of what they're doing and finding is pretty interesting regardless.
CM Note: The quests and expeditions continue. However, Classroom Connect is now a subscription-based service. A free trial is available if you wish to see MayaQuest 2001.
- nov 2001
- The "cover page" of this Stonehenge site will have you thinking this is some weired neo-pagan, druidic fantasy; in fact, it gives a good, sober overview of Stonehenge and similar astronomical stone structures around the world.
- Shatner Rocks
Formerly known as
"The Capt. James T. Kirk Sing-a-long Page"
- Come on, if you found this, you'd have to include it too. Let your students listen to William Shatner's cover-versions of "Tambourine Man" and "Lucy in the Sky" when the've been good, as a treat. . . .
