REVIEW:
These science resources were created by teachers in the United Kingdom and relate to the work of the sponsoring company. Biology, chemistry, and physics teachers everywhere will find these "e-sources" (electronic resources) a great supplement to their instruction. All the resources use interactive diagrams, glossaries, quizzes, and a find feature. Be sure to visit Highlights for some interesting approaches to interactive/animated diagrams and text. Featured topics include Interactive rock cycle and Proton structure. There is a special section just for Teachers, with guides, activities, and suggestions for using the site.
