Hello fellows.

I was just catching up on some of my email subscriptions and I found these
in Yahoo's picks of the week for the past month or so. I thought some of
you might be interested in at least, some of these sites. (For more about
this service visit Yahoo's "picks"site: <http://www.yahoo.com/picks/>.) I
checked each of these to make sure the links work, but I didn't spend much
time with them.

Enjoy or ignore -- your call.


From August 24.....

--------------------------
Jefferson Moses

        http://www.ioweb.com/civilwar/

Catch a glimpse of life as a Union soldier in the Civil War by
browsing through the memoirs and diary of Private Jefferson Moses. The
site, put together by Moses' great-grandson, also offers photographs
of the writer and links to related Civil War resources.

--------------------------

Also from August 24, although not exactly American History....

Amusement Park Physics

        http://www.learner.org/exhibits/parkphysics/

This site answers the question, "How do physics laws affect amusement
park ride design?" This is a good thing, for at least two reasons: 1.)
the answer makes for an interesting web site, and 2.) you'll now know
why it's a really, really bad idea to eat too many hot dogs before
riding a roller coaster. Nuff said.

---------------------------------------
From Sept. 14:
--------------------

Ask Yahoo!

        http://howto.yahoo.com/ask/main.html

What is Styrofoam made of? How many people are there in the world?
What are some suggested vacation spots for a family with a 3-year-old?
How do worms multiply? Can you suggest any good sites where I can find
new cars? Answers to these burning questions and much, much more.

--------------------

Of course there are lots more of these, for example,

Ask KidsConnect for K-12 students -- volunteer school librarians/media
specialists answer the questions and refer students back to local resources.

And then there's a whole list of "AskA" webpages, posted by the AskERIC
folks, it's called the "Ask-A-Locator page"
<http://www.vrd.org/locator/subject.html>.

----------------------

OK, back to Yahoo's list:

--------------------
Again, maybe not American History related, but....
From Sept 14

How Stuff Works

        http://www.howstuffworks.com/

Imagine this. You've just created a terrific web site that--well, that
explains how things work. That's what it does, and it does it
well. You've got all kinds of interesting stuff. How cell phones
work. How CDs work. How global positioning systems work. Even how
bread works. Get the picture? OK, now. What do you call your
site. Hmmm. Think about that for a while. Get back to us when you
figure it out.

--------------------
more from Sept. 14's list:
--------------------

The Codex Leicester

        http://www.amnh.org/Exhibition/Codex/index.html

Before DiCaprio there was da Vinci, and boy was he a smarty
pants. Read Leonardo's "masterpiece of science," the Codex Leicester,
written between 1506 and 1510 and covering everything from astronomy
to hydrodynamics. In the words of the site, the manuscript "opens a
window onto the mind of the awe-inspiring Renaissance artist,
scientist, and thinker, while illuminating both the scientific process
itself and the creativity of that process. [It] reveals Leonardo as a
man of transcendent brilliance."

--------------------------

And from this week's Yahoo's picks:

--------------------------
New York Times Learning Network

        http://www.nytimes.com/learning/

Here's a cool site for students (grades 6-12), parents, and
teachers. Each weekday The Times provides specially selected feature
articles and a related lesson plan. Students can read the articles
with special vocabulary and geography hyperlinks. Teachers can read
national education news and search the lesson-plan archive. Parents
can participate in online discussions and read reviews of educational
products.

--------------------

That's all for now.

Betty
