A wonderful tour of how the body functions. The novel diagrams and text in the book work with the animations on the free disc to give a clear idea of what happens when the body reacts to a cut or bee sting.
CD-Rom KS3 Physics Overview on CD (Focus, Licences from pound;29.95 plus VAT www.focuseducational.com).
Excellent animations of physics principles, from movements in the solar system to electric motors. Great for whiteboards.
Website Astronomy for Kids: http:www.dustbunny.com. Great sky maps, and my 13-year-olds enjoyed using the planet data to make displays and PowerPoints. Links to other good resources.
Astronomy Picture of the Day http:antwrp.gsfc.nasa.govapodastropix.html. This brilliant collection of photos inspires pupils to ask "What's that?" Great stimulus material for the whiteboard with information on pictures.
