AN ADVENTURE IN LOOKING

Meet up with your safari guide in the very civilized Museum of Modern Art at artsafari.moma.org. Look! Over that hill, it's a real, live Picasso! This is no big-game safari.

THE TIDE IS HIGH

At Life on the Rocky Shore, you'll learn about crabs, sea urchins, abalones and other way-cool creatures. The tide rushes in at library.thinkquest.org/J001418/.

Then bring your crayons to the Tidepool Coloring Pages and color in pictures of sand dollars and sea slugs. The site also has a glossary of terms about tidepools as well as great games and several crossword puzzles.
