This CD-ROM has been designed for students aged 7-11. It can be used in science classes, for homeroom study, or for independent enrichment at home. It can be used for a minimum of a single 50 minute class period or for up to a week of study.
A CD-ROM is a supplementary teaching tool -- not a replacement for excellent, hands-on teaching. Students should be encouraged to use this tool as a resource but not to rely on it as their sole source of information.
We have divided the teacher’s guide into five simple steps to help you make the best use of this program. If you are new to the use of computers or the internet in the classroom, be sure to begin with Step 1: Computers in the Classroom.
