What a great name for a Web site... The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has great resources and activities here for kids and teachers. The EEK! (Environmental Education for Kids) Web site (link) is geared toward schoolchildren in grades 4 though 8 and their teachers.

Some highlights you shouldn't miss:

Water Wonders has lots of activities to learn about the wet world we live in.

The amphibians section for kids has a whole lot of great information on frogs and toads (a favorite of Water Library patrons).

Find out what critters stay "snug in the snow" in our cold state...

The Teacher's Pages are chock-full of resources on a wide range of topics. And don't miss the new Climate Change Guide from DNR for grades 7 through 12.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to askwater at
