I thought it might be nice if others could share their favorite stuff, too... so please link up if you do your own 'favorite resources' post. These are not our only ones, just our "go to" pages. Naturally, things come up every day that get searched.
If you'd like to just leave ideas in the comments... that would be most welcome, too!
Specifically, I was asked about online games, other than Poptropica, Webkinz, and Club Penguin, and the other request was for Science Experiments.
I spose I'll try to categorize them by subject, for quick-reference sake.
Some of these are mine, for knowledge and explanations, some are places my children like to play. All are free.
