Designed for younger students, this Web site from the University of Illinois Extension offers a number fun, interactive programs on a variety of life science topics. Most of the activities include a guide for teachers, which differ in level of detail. The activities themselves vary in their format and features, from animated cartoons with minimal text to pages of text with no diagrams at all. Check the teachers' guide of each activity for appropriate grade level. The activity about earthworms titled The Adventures of Herman is especially fun, with lots of worm-related games, links, and even an online art gallery to which students are encouraged to contribute.
