The National Genealogical Society estimates that family history is the second most popular hobby in America (after gardening) and one of the most searched for topics on the Internet.  As a hobby, genealogy has all the right stuff.  It is fun, educational, addictive, and everyone (regardless of their age) can join in.

EPA: Drinking Water Kids Stuff
The EPA offers a combination of online lessons, games, and three printable curriculum guides for grades K through 12. Make "Games and Online Activities" your first stop, where (despite the title) you'll find educational, illustrated articles on the water cycle, water treatment, conservation tips, water trivia and two word games. For fun projects for home, scout troop, or classroom (such as "Build Your Own Water Cycle" and "Build Your Own Watershed.") visit "Classroom Activities & Experiments."

KidZone The Water Cycle
Evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and collection: this terrific single-page explains it all for lower-elementary students. Best clicks are the five printable activity sheets, available in both color or color-it-yourself black-and-white. The first printable illustrates the entire cycle, and each individual process has its own sheet. You'll find them at the very bottom of the page. For more "Super Simple Science," explore the topics in the horizontal menu at the top of the page.

USGS Water Cycle: Follow a Drip
The U.S.Geological Survey follows a water drip from ocean to cloud and back down again in this site for middle and high-school students. Their beautiful hydrologic (water) cycle diagram is available in English, Spanish, and a bigger version just for printing. Additional water science topics can be found under the rainbow; just click on a cloud! The glossary of water science terms, however, isn't on the rainbow menu. You'll find its link in the lower right-hand corner of each page.

First Peoples' Cultural Foundation
The First Peoples' Cultural Foundation is a not-for-profit charitable public organization that generates support to raise awareness and funding for Aboriginal language revitalization. The Foundation works with its sister organization, the First Peoples’ Heritage, Language and Culture Council to ensure fair and equal access for all funds raised and to all programs available.

Spirit Warriors - Little Bighorn Aboriginal Monument
As an element of the Aboriginal Memorial, the Spirit Warriors sculpture will occupy a prominent position on the northwest facing outer ring of the ceremonial circle. The sculpture is envisioned as a two-dimensional line drawing framed by the walls of the memorial and etched against the high prairie landscape and the big Montana sky. The sculpture is meant to convey the living spirit of three mounted warriors racing free across the plains.
