Quoted TextMaybe you have heard of *Clickschooling*
I think it's kind of cool. They send out a website everyday, many are cool, some I just delete.
Each day has an *educational* theme like Wednesdays are Language Arts, I think Mondays are Math, they also have a day for science,
History/SS and the Arts etc. Last year one day they sent out a 24 hr webcam of a watering hole
somewhere in Africa that was cool!
Anyway below is today's just for a taste. (ps they aren't always a young theme)
