Some interesting websites, particularly for learning.
Edheads is an interactive site where you can conduct brain surgery, design a cell phone, replace a knee, and more … very cool interactive site with some real (and gross) surgery graphics.
If you have any interest in birds, Cornell has a great website All About Birds that is filled with information, pictures and birds. If you ever wonder what a Belted Kingfisher sounds and looks like, this place is for you.
NASA’s web gallery is a great place to see the universe … or at least small portions of it.
The USDA is making continual efforts to popularize its new food pyramid. The MyPyramid website has a lot of content, some of it geared for kids and most of it intended for family consumption … While the website isn’t stellar, the issue of nutrition is worth widespread attention and support given the epidemic of obesity and particularly the ever-increasing rate of childhood obesity.
Cornell also operates the best website for legal research, the Legal Information Institute.
One reply on “Cool websites”
I don’t know that I will be using Cornell’s legal research site (yet), but I am showing the other sites to the girls. Rebekah especially has been interested in birds lately.
