livescience.com

In a list of recommended science websites, LiveScience.com would have to be near the top of my list.  It is serious science news and articles written for an educated audience so you will definately have to translate it for your younger children.  Still there is a wealth of exciting and interesting information on current scientific news all in one place.  If it’s big and scientific you will find it here among many other cool though less front page topics.  As I mentioned, most of the articles are too advanced for younger children, but I can’t get enough and I am constantly finding little gems to share with my kids.  For instance here is a recent one; lightening is 1″ – 2″ thick, travels at 90,000 miles per second and is 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit.  My kids are gonna love that!  I’ll save it for the next thunder storm when it will make a bigger impression and have better chance of sticking with them.!  Anyway, that was just a small detail in this article about cars and lightening.  So, check it out and see what you think, but however you choose. . .just keep learning.  Strange, I just heard Dory from “Finding Nemo” in that last sentence, a little scary :)
