Get Educated

If you want to get your kids to dive into learning, why not pair their studies with everyday learning experiences? The U.S. Department of Education, along with 30 federal agencies, has formed Federal Resources for Educational Excellence, or FREE (www.ed.gov/free/ index.html), a site that offers teaching and learning resources on everything from history to foreign languages. For example, did you know that chameleons and iguanas rely on vision while other lizards, such as geckos, depend on their sense of smell (for which they use their tongue)? Sites like FREE will help you and your child make learning fun again.
