I came across a new website called "Archimedes Notebook." It is a new educational blog that offers hands-on science exploration ideas for children and their parents. Some of the blog entries have information to read and discuss. Many of the entries have activities to try at home. The sidebar showcases many interesting links to other learning resources. I hope the ideas will enhance your time spent outdoors if you are playing in your yard or hiking through our local metro parks. Enjoy the website and let me know what you discover!
