Url: http://www.dnr.state.wi.us/org/caer/ce/eek/
Description: This site is an "electronic magazine for kids in grades 4-8" which contains information and articles dealing with the environment and environmental issues of the Earth. Nature Notes contains information and articles about animals, habitats, phenology, vegetation, and Wisconsin state symbols. Included is a clickable poster that gives students additional information about the animals of the forest. In Our Earth, students learn about the environment and environmental issues such as endangered species, global warming, and air quality. Cool Stuff contains fun activities like rainy day activities, a recycling coloring book, and student artwork and writing. Students can find out about getting a job as a hydrogeologist, engineer, park ranger, wildlife biologist, or park naturalist. Included are teaching activities and educational resources. Each activity contains the grade level, objectives, needed materials, background information, and procedures. A new riddle for students to solve is added each month.
