THE BRITISH INVASION

Put on your go-go boots and get ready to do "the jerk"! Relive the 1960s pop music experience at http:// www.britishinvasion. eb.com/ As soon as you log on, you'll know you're into something good, baby. The history, the music, the fashion, the fans...it's all here. Lots of groovin' tunes and hip videos give this site energy, so you can get lost in the '60s. Then check out the trading cards for highlights of all the bands, like The Animals, The Troggs and the Zombies. You'll love them, ya, ya, ya! The British Invasion created some of the most influential music of our century and kept crowds screaming for years. If you weren't there when it happened, you'll want to get in on the fun of the cyber invasion. This is one site that will have you feeling glad all over!

DO THE HOP

Feelin' a bit froggy? You'll love the offerings at the Exploratorium's Frogs site, a virtual swampland of information on our fave amphibians. Grab a lily pad and float out to http:// www.exploratorium.edu/frogs/, an oasis for our hopping green friends. From the mythological toad to the calls of frogs in Puerto Rico's rainforests, the site delivers the facts, and uncovers the myths. You'll visit Rayne, La., also known as Frog City USA, where frog art is plastered across Main Street. Or go back in time to 190 million years ago, when the ancestors of frogs roamed the Earth. Believe it or not, frogs can be found just about anywhere there's fresh water, from the desert to the Arctic. And check out the Frog Tracker, which lets you listen to the calls of different North American frogs. From the bullfrog to the fire-bellied toad, this exhibit is always hopping.
