National Wildlife Federation
http://www.nwf.org/

B+ CONTENT:
For educators, students, and wildlife enthusiasts, this is a comprehensive site.

A AESTHETICS:
This site is quite beautiful, using graphics and even animation in a fun, yet not-too-heavy manner.

A ORGANIZATION:
This is a site easy to navigate and easy to orient to.

A REVIEW:
The main section of interest to educators, (In the Classroom) links to a series of very complete and professional non-internet lesson plans on Air, Habitat, People and the Environment, Wildlife and Endangered Species, and Water. The Kids section has games and riddles, a link to their online version of Ranger Rick (a magazine), and a really great section called Cool Tours on Water, Wet Lands, Endangered Species, and Our Public Land. These virtual tours let kids learn on their own about environmental issues of interest to them. Dont miss the Online Library which links to their 4 magazines. Each one contains online articles that teachers would find very useful for in-class use. This is a well-designed site with tons of information and ideas for the classroom.
