A friend of mine recently sent me a link to one of the coolest web sites I’ve seen in a long time.
Take your computer mouse and click on any of the nine categories listed to begin, then click on the blue ball along the timeline on the bottom of the screen.
Move the mouse to the right to zoom in all the way to see a the components of an atom or move the mouse to the left to speed past a visual catalog of things ranked by size (e.g. bacteria, giraffes, buildings, mountains, planets, solar systems…etc) all the way out to the observable universe.
This is one of the coolest learning applications I’ve seen, it’s completely kid-friendly – and they’ll love it (assuming they even get a chance to try it because you’re likely to love it too!!!)
