I stumbled upon this site when looking for some pre-field trip activities for an excursion we were supposed to take down to the Audubon Conservation Eduction Center (near Norm's Island and Riverfront Park). Since the lovely spring snow forced us to cancel, we went on a virtual field trip instead.

There are some excellent articles on nature and conservation topics, as well as really fun activities that my 4th graders loved!

Discovery Channel's Game Central has great interactive games for all ages.

Check out the Life or Death games. The students can choose to survive the jungle, ocean or winter. You must choose the correct items in order to survive your situation. It is totally not what you expect, and they give you some great life saving tips.
