Youngzine Presents Wide World Science Lizards

Last fall I wrote a short review of an online news magazine for kids called Youngzine. Youngzine has a new feature running right now that is intended to get kids interested in a field study of lizards in Florida. The Wide World Science Lizard Project is a two week feature that classrooms can follow as researchers post new information each day about lizards on Florida islands. From March 28 to April 10 students can view pictures, videos, and ask questions about the things they see in the blog posts.

Applications for Education
The Youngzine World Wide Science Lizard Project could be a nice little part of an elementary school science lesson about biodiversity and habitat.
