with Dinosaurs ***** (1)
Fantastic educational site based on the much acclaimed BBC TV. series
with lots to interest people of all ages. In the author's opinion not
only the best dino site, but one of the best geological sites.If you go
to the main BBC index the full address should read http://www.bbc.co.uk/dinosaurs/index.shtml.
and Planetary Institute ***** (2)
Loads of information and images with teacher workshops
and student programs. Possibly the best planetary site on the www.
Savage Earth ****
A good general introduction to the subject. Articles on volcanoes, earthquakes
and tsunamis with excellent images and animations.
Claims to be the premier site for volcano information and may well be.
It is certainly extremely comprehensive and as the site includes its own
search engine the information is also easily accessed. Includes features
such as 'ask a volcanologist', 'kids door' and much, much more. If your
time is limited and you are interested in the distribution of volcanoes
worldwide, including those which may have been inactive for millions of
years then this is one site not to miss.

A very visual educational site which includes a wealth of information,
the educational nature of which is balanced with some humorous cartoons.
Well worth a visit by any student with a project. It is easy to use and
well cross referenced.
