Thanks for the memories Just for kids

August 25, 1998

How come your parents can remember embarassing things you said 10 years ago when you can't remember what you ate for dinner last night? Memory can play tricks on you, but if you remember to visit this cool site, you'll learn all about how memory works and how to strengthen your own memory muscles. Get this in your brain: http://www.exploratorium.edu/memory/index.html. Check out the cool interactive memory games and find out why we remember people best by their hair. How far back in your life can you remember? Don't log off until you've entered your earliest childhood memory to the guest book, too.

Face Your Garbage

We may not want to see or smell it, but garbage is a part of our world's reality that we can no longer ignore. The Garbage Project is an online exhibit dedicated to educating the public about the world's waste, and ways we can reduce the amount of garbage we produce. Take the trash out to http:// www.astc.org/info/exhibits/rotten/rthome.htm and meet the people who are making a difference in how we think about garbage. You'll learn about landfills, composting, recycling and source reduction. Plus, you can try a number of activities, including a landfill tour and a homemade ecosystem. Make the right choice by making less rubbish!
