This is our ever changing list of recently added sites, plus an occasional oldie. 
Generally, sites get added on the top and eventually get taken off the bottom.
Note: Due to the pandemic and resultant school closings, any new remote learning
sites will be added on the Home Page. "Regular" new sites will still be added here.

 

This page is one small part of Good Sites for Kids!

How These Female Cavers Recovered New Human Ancestor Fossils

Deep within a cave in South Africa, more than 1,200 individual bones of a new
human ancestor, Homo naledi, were discovered. To recover the bones, six
archaeologists had to rappel down underground shafts and squeeze through
rocky passageways as narrow as 18 centimeters (8 in). The call went out and
all the small, tough, limber athletes who qualified - were women.

The Ickabog This is the latest J. K. Rowling story.
It is not illustrated because J. K. Rowling wants YOU
to supply the pictures! "The most exciting part, for me,
at least, is that I’d like you to illustrate The Ickabog for me.
Every day, I’ll be making suggestions for what you might
like to draw. You can enter the official competition being
run by my publishers, for the chance to have your artwork
included in a printed version of the book due out later
this year. I’ll be giving suggestions as to what to draw as
we go along, but you should let your imagination run wild."

It's finally done. Now you can make your own giant periodic table with these infographics!


Compound Interest
The International Year of the Periodic Table might be over, but you can still download
all of the #IYPT2019 graphics, made with the Royal Society of Chemistry, on the site here:

https://www.compoundchem.com/iypt2019elements/

or from the RSC here.

If you followed the series through 2019, I hope you enjoyed it and learned something new
and interesting about some of the elements. I'd still love to see what you do with the graphics,
so if you're making a display or using them in some other way, please do share!

Robyn Harvey: "We made a wall of these in one of our high school science labs in Tamworth,
Australia. It looks fantastic! Will post a photo when we go back to school when we print and
laminate the last few elements as we started holidays before the last elements were sent out.
The students from Years 7-12 really enjoyed seeing it take shape all year.
It’s a permanent fixture now."

Hi, kids! I'm Dakota! I am the newest Brittany here at
Good Sites for Kids! I'm a retired hunter and a mama.
My fur-sister Lily and I are American Bittanies and are
both South Dakota natives. When we're not helping out
on the site, we patrol the outdoors, chase rabbits and
squirrels, woof at kids at the schoolyard, rack out on
the beds, ask for treats, and hang out with our peeps!
