Sharks - Virtual Field Trip
http://www.field-trips.org/sci/sharks/index.htm
A field trip created with TourMaker guides you through a sequence of Web pages on any given topic. For each page, there is simultaneous commentary in an accompanying frame. You move forward and back through the Field Trip using the tour Control Panel and you can leave the Tour to explore links and return to it whenever you want.
Did you know that about 80% of the shark species have never attacked humans? Sharks are found in all the oceans of the world, but there are only four species that are considered dangerous: the great white shark (known to most of us courtesy of the movie "Jaws"), tiger shark, bull shark and oceanic whitetip shark. Humans are not the preferred food of sharks despite public hysteria and opinion to the contrary. Research suggests it to be a case of mistaken identity.
Read about this and much more on this virtual tour of sharks.

Bemboo's Zoo
http://www.bemboszoo.com/Bembo.swf
This is so clever ... but a simple concept.
You will see the letters of the alphabet ... when you click on one (e.g. M for Monkey) then it takes the letters from the word 'monkey' and builds a picture of a monkey.
I suspect some great lessons could be built aorund this that incorporated a 'zoo' or 'anim al' topic with writing, literacy etc.
Even while the file is loading there is some fun stuff with the alphabet following your pointer on the screen.

Terrariums
http://extension.missouri.edu/publications/DisplayPub.aspx?P=G6520
A terrarium is a tightly closed clear glass or plastic container filled with small plants. It also has come to mean an open, transparent container for growing and displaying plants. Terrariums are most useful for plants that do not adapt well to normal home atmospheres. When properly planted and located, they provide a way to grow many plants with relatively little care.
